The terroirs, to the south of Bordeaux are renowned for their wine production. Their soils are classed as gravel and produce mostly red wines for Pessac-Leognan and sweet white wines for Sauternes.
Going for a wine tour through those terroirs, you will enjoy private visits and tastings for instance at Château Pape Clément, Château Fieuzal or Château Haut-Bailly in Pessac-Leognan. If you prefer an amazing family owned vineyard you should try Fr Château Raymond Lafon, an amazing family owned or the illustrious Château D’Yquem. You may also want to stop for lunch at La Table du Lavoir, the brasserie of the famous Hotel & SPA Les Sources de Caudalie, at the heart of the vineyards.
