Naujan-et-Postiac is a commune in the Gironde department in Aquitaine in southwestern France.

At 35 km from Bordeaux, 6 km south of the Dordogne River.

A nice area of the Entre-Deux-Mers region (between the two rivers of Dordogne and Garonne), where the vineyard is still very important, as it is less and less in the southern direction.

It has nice rural architecture, well kept in the traditional style make the most part of religious and housing buildings, as of the several châteaux in the wine business. The woods and small valleys are still enough in the countryside view to allow a charm near exception if it was not also a quality of so many other villages of the area.

The present administrative and geographical situation of the commune comes from the association of two villages and their dependencies before the French Revolution, and the confirmation in the new national organization created in 1802. The church of the village of Postiac, which became then private property is slowly disappearing under growing trees.
