Located atop Côte Pavie (Pavie Hill), between Montagne and St. Emilion in the southwestern part of France, sits the quaint little pied-à-terre, Château Saint Georges.
Saint Georges is more than just an elegant castle, it’s also a tiny village just a few miles north of Saint-Emilion proper. The estate’s 12-acres of vineyards lie just to the south of the village and run as far as the Barbanne river. Château Saint Georges produces some of the Bordeaux region’s fine red wines, highly-prized and celebrated for aging well in the bottle.

You forgot to mention the guard dog!!!
I’m too frightened to. 🙂
Pied-a-terre indeed.. and then some!! Tres jolie 🙂
Amit, merci beaucoup!
What an elegant place, Tom. Beautiful pics. 🙂
Sylvia — Quite spectacular on the outside. Too bad it was closed by the time I arrived, but well worth the short look around.
Beautiful Tom – you need to send these shots to the vineyard. They should use them in their adverts!
Tina — The chateau was actually closed by the time I got there, at a little after 4:00 p.m. I wanted to sample the wines and maybe buy a bottle or two. Had I gotten inside, sampled the brew, then maybe I’d share these frames with the staff. Oh well, c’est la vie!
Bummer! BTW did you get a ping a k on my Golden Hour Ii post? I put a link to your site but not to a specific post
Tina — No pingback associated to you.
Interesting. I guess it’s just a link. I’ll do an edit & ping back.
It looks really gorgeous!
Glad you enjoyed this Michael.
Love having my daily travel with you and craving some of their wine although today it’s so hot, I’d have to opt for rosé. Beautiful photos as usual.
Janet — Me, too, but down in SW France they love their vin rouge.
Wow, this place is gorgeous and you’ve captured it so beautifully Tom. Perfect lawn for a picnic. Some wine and french cheese perhaps?
Unfortunately, they close their doors daily at 4:00 p.m., so I never got further than “window shopping” when I arrived, but quite impressive just the same from the outside looking in.
awesome awesome pictures! I like pictures of lanscape or architecture that are clean from people.
I agree, but sometimes you just can control the crowds. Glad you enjoyed this set, shot when nary a soul was around but me.
