Vineyards in Entre Deux Mers, Bordeaux

Entre-Deux-Mers, which literally translates to"between two seas" is situated between the Dordogne and Garonne rivers. It is Bordeaux's largest district and home to various appellations which produce a range of wine styles ranging from the sweet white wines of Cadillac and Loupiac to the dry table wines of Sainte Foy and Graves de Vayres. There is also an increasing volume of excellent value-for-money red wines that are entitled to the Bordeaux, Bordeaux Supérieur and Côtes de Bordeaux appellations.

The regional Entre-deux-Mers appellation title itself applies uniquely to dry white wines made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Muscadelle and Ugni Blanc grape varieties. However, the majority of wine produced within the boundaries of the AOC Entre-Deux-Mers is labeled as generic Bordeaux or as Bordeaux Supérieur.
