This organic winery consistently produces award winning wines and is the perfect place to spend a wine experience day to learn how to make great Saint-Emilion wines, whether it be by working in the vineyard or discovering the art of blending in the cellar.
Bordeaux is synonymous with wine, and wine is intertwined with the history of the region. The wine routes and vineyards spread in all directions around Bordeaux and are divided into 6 sub-regions: Medoc, Graves, Entre-deux-Mers, Sauternes, Libourne, and Blaye-Bourg. The wine-making regions grow many different grape varietals, the best known ones being Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet France, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Carmenère for the red wines, and Sémillion, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle for the white wines.
