The Graves AOC stretches over 60kms along the left bank of the river Garonne up to Langon. The Graves vineyard is bordered to the South-West by the Landes forest. This ideal location offers the vines protection both from the bad weather, thanks to the Landes forest, and from drought thanks to the Garonne. The Graves vines grow on a long gravelly band of pebbles, clay and starfish limestone. The soil of this AOC, which is typical of the Bordeaux region, is so renowned that it is the only one to have given its name to an appellation.
