History: Winemaking in Saint-Bris AOC has a long and rich history, dating back to the medieval period. The wines of Saint-Bris were highly prized and were often exported to other parts of France and beyond. The wine-growing region was known for its high-quality white wines, which were made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape variety.

Over the centuries, the winemaking traditions of Saint-Bris evolved and changed, adapting to new technologies and changing tastes. During the 19th century, the region saw a decline in wine production, as many vineyards were replaced with other crops.

However, in the early 20th century, winemaking in Saint-Bris began to recover, and the region became established as a major producer of high-quality white wines once again. Today, the region is known for its traditional winemaking methods and its focus on producing wines that reflect the unique character of the local terroir.
