Saint-Emilion Restaurant Inc
The restaurant's name, Saint-Emilion, comes from the centuries old village of Saint-Emilion in southwestern France located near Libourne where Tronche grew up. The Romans planted vineyards in what was to become Saint-Emilion as early as the 2nd century AD. The town was named after the monk Emilion who settled in the area and encouraged other monks to launch a commercial wine production. Saint-Emilon today is one of the principal red wine areas of the Bordeaux region and is renowned for a large number of Grands Cru classified wines. Its most famous labels are Chateau Ausone and Chateau Cheval Blanc.
