Château George 7
TAKING HERITAGE INTO THE FUTURE
Château George 7 is a boutique winery on the right bank of Bordeaux in the village of Saillans. Established in 2017, we produce a range of red and white wines - AOC Fronsac red wines from 35-year-old merlot vines and a white AOC Bordeaux Blanc.
Our name reflects our mission - to blend the best of the heritage and tradition of Bordeaux with forward-looking wine-making approaches and techniques.
Making Our Wines
TAKING NATURE BY THE HAND
Merlot flourishes here in the Fronsac terroir of clay soil over the underlying limestone plateau which stretches across the village of Saillans.
Here at an altitude of about 60m, we tend each small parcel of the 3-hectare estate according to its specific aspect and particularities to encourage the very best it has to offer.
LIFE CHANGE INTO WINE
Having lived and worked in France for over 25 years, and after the family had flown the nest, the time had come to embark on a new adventure. I started studying WSET (Wine and Spirits Education Trust) wine courses and travelled to Bordeaux to explore the city and its appellations. Could a woman, on her own, with no previous wine experience create a new wine château?
