Sainte-Croix-du-Mont is a wine appellation in the Bordeaux region of France that lies on the right bank of the Garonne directly opposite the Sauternes appellation. Like Sauternes, the Sainte-Croix-du-Mont appellation is devoted to the production of sweet white wines. It was granted AOC status in September 1936.
The appellation area covers some 380 hectares and the soils have a strong limestone component with limestone outcrops dotted through the area.
The permitted grape varieties are Muscadelle, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris.
