Since the first century AD, the vineyards of Bordeaux has designed the scenery and scumpted the city and expressed as much personality in several flavors.
From the top of the great limestone plateau of the right bank, the incredible St. Emilion, Pomerol and Fronsac. The northern Medoc is a hotbed of red wine, which resonates with these names to give you all envy: Pauillac, Margaux, Listrac, Moulis, Saint-Julien and St. Estephe.


St. Emilion South of Bordeaux, we find the the serious (Pessac-Leognan) and dessert wines (Ceron, Sautenres, Barsac on the left bank of the Garonne, Saint Croix du Mont Loupiac on the right bank). Between the Garonne and Dordogne, Entre-Deux-Mers, the largest wine region of Bordeaux, offers a wide variety of white wines and red grapes from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec.
