Chateau Sainte Colombe in the Cotes de Castillon appellation is owned by Gerard and Chantal Perse. While Gerard Perse is better known for his multiple properties in St. Emilion, including Chateau Pavie, he also maintains strong interests in the satellite appellations of St. Emilion. The wine of Sainte Colombe made its debut with the 1999 vintage. At the time, Alain Raynaud was the consultant.

The vines are carefully pruned, with green harvesting and a first leaf thinning taking place at the end of June. A second thinning is made in again mid-August.

To produce the wine of Sainte Colombe, after a long, cold maceration, vinification is allowed to start naturally, in temperature-controlled concrete vats. Malolactic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels. The wine of Sainte-Colombe is on its fine lees for 6 months.

At that point, the lees are removed and the wine ages for another 6 months in the same barrels which come from several other chateaux owner by Perse; Pavie Decesse and Monbousquet. The final blending takes place just before bottling, which is done without fining or filtering.
