Vieux Chateaux des Combes is located in Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, just five kilometers away from the historic village of Saint-Emilion. Its name suggests some wine was produced here in the 17th century when the Benedictine abbey was built and vines were planted, scattered around the buildings, growing on little hills and valleys, known as combes.
