Defined as the largest vineyard in the world, with 121,500 hectares and nearly 6 Million hl of production, it is also a mix of originals soils where we can count not less than 57 appellations.
Red wines dominate production today, while dry whites give more and more personality. The sweet ones perpetuate the grand Girondine’s production. The Bordeaux region has its famous reputation from its soils and climate particularly conducive the slow maturation of red grape tannins and the synthesis of flavors in white varieties. The Garonne and Dordogne rivers flow toward the northwest, crossing the Bordeaux and flow into the Atlantic. They divide the region into three parts: « La Rive Gauche », in the west of the Garonne, which includes the Medoc vineyards; « la Rive Droite », just east of the Dordogne, which includes Saint-Emilion, Pomerol and Fronsac, and finally the intermediate zone, called the « Entre-Deux-Mers ».
