Chateau Edmus takes its name from the founder of the estate, Philip Edmunson, an American businessman, who obtained the Right Bank vineyard in 2007 with his business partner, Eric Remus. After purchasing Chateau Edmus, their next move was to hire the noted wine consultant, Stephane Derenoncourt to help with vineyard management and wine making, before starting a renovation of the property and vineyards. 2007 marked the official debut of Chateau Edmus. However, 2008 was the first year when the owners were able to exercise full control.

The 5.8 hectare St. Emilion vineyard of Chateau Edmus is located not far from Chateau Monbousquet. The terroir is sand and gravel. The vineyard is planted to 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, typical of the St. Emilion appellation. On average, the vines are 35 years of age. The Right Bank vineyard is planted to a vine density of 5,200 vines per hectare. At Chateau Edmus, they strive to be as green as possible and practice sustainable farming when they can, without the use of weed killing chemicals or chemical fertilizers of any kind.

The vinification of Chateau Edmus takes place after the fruit is sorted first in the vineyards and a second time, at the grape reception center. The wine of Chateau Edmus is whole berry fermented in 5 temperature controlled, concrete vats of various sizes, which allow for close to a parcel by parcel vinification. Chateau Edmus is aged in 60% new, French oak for between 14 to 16 months. The time and amount of new oak varies on the character of the vintage. The annual production of Chateau Edmus ranges from 5,000 to 7,000 cases depending on the year.
