Graves de Vayres AOC

Description to Graves de Vayres AOC

Named after the historic town of Vayres, the appellation is located in the north of the large Entre-deux-Mers area (Bordeaux). However, it has nothing to do with the Graves area. The area covers 600 hectares of vineyards on gravelly and sandy soil on the left bank of the Dordogne. It applies to dry and sweet white wines from Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadelle and Merlot Blanc, and to dry red wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Carmenère, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot.
