Château Quintus


Chateau Quintus, Saint-Emilion, France


A unique and harmonious creation of both nature and mankind, the Saint-Émilion landscape bears witness to centuries of history.
According to UNESCO, “the Jurisdiction of Saint-Émilion is an outstanding example of an historic vineyard landscape that has survived intact and in activity to the present day”.
Well aware of its special status, the Communauté de Communes de la Jurisdiction de Saint-Émilion asked to be listed as a World Heritage Site. In 1999, for the first time ever, a vineyard landscape was acknowledged as a “cultural landscape” worthy of listing as a World Heritage Site.
