The Graves region is the cradle of Bordeaux white and red wines. The Graves wine district starts at the “Jalle de Blanquefort” and ends just after Langon.
The river forms the Easter border of the vineyards while to the west the pine forest of the Landes serves as boundary and protection alike. But the majority of A.O.C. GRAVES wines come from the area extending from La Brède to Langon, encircling the Barsac and the Sauternes appellation area.
To understand the Médoc, you have to unravel 3 secrets.Three mysteries which, once solved, throw some light on what lies behind the Médoc vineyards, the half-hidden face of which does not easily reveal the essence of its existence.
With patience, the skies will clear, the soil will talk and you will finally come to understand why this wine-making region is, without doubt, one of the most prestigious in the world.
