Bordeaux and its vineyard

Famous the world over, the Médoc is amongst the most prestigious of Bordeaux’s winegrowing territories.

Visit the grands châteaux de St Emilion,

meet the master winemakers of the Graves and share in their passion for great wines.



A stunning medieval town situated in the heart of the Bordeaux vineyards, Saint-Emilion is unique. The quality of its wines, the splendour of its architecture and monuments and the sweet smell of the local macarons make this a great place to visit. Admire the spectacular views from the rocky promontory and discover all the town’s secrets and history.

This town is home to one of the greatest and most world-renowned French wine areas. Its numerous terroirs and wide range of grape varieties will leave your pallet fulfilled with an array of sensory delights.


The Graves region is located to the south of the Médoc area, on the left bank of the Garonne and stretches all the way down to Langon through the wine areas of Cérons, Barsac and Sauternes.

The vast Landes forest protects the vineyardsfrom the Atlantic winds, giving this region a temperate climate.


This “middle land”, located between the Atlantic ocean and the Gironde estuary, offers a succession of gravelly hills known as “brows” (made up of a mixture of pebbles, sand and gravel) that overlook the estuary. The Médoc is a triangular peninsula, with the vineyards occupying the western part, 80km along the Gironde with a width of about 10km.

The 45th parallel passes through the region, giving the area a moderately warm and humid climate with plenty of sun and rather mild winters. The Médoc enjoys an exceptional micro-climate and sandy soil with very little limestone, lying on a hard, compact and impermeable sub soil, which is perfect for the vineyards.
