We are located right at the meeting point of the French wine families Graves and Sauternes. The Graves area is particularly famous for its red wines, made with cabernet-sauvignon and merlot grapes. Sauternes is well-known for sweet white wines, and Cérons (part of Graves) is also well worth discovering for sweet wines recommended as a pre-dinner drink on a hot summer night. What most people don't know is that the Sauternes and Graves soil is also very good for dry, white wines, which are becoming increasingly popular. There are some real hidden white, dry gems, made with semillon and sauvignon grapes.
From Les Vignes Reines, you can easily drive to the prestigious classified grands crus of Pessac-Léognan, Château d'Yquem and even the large vineyards of Saint-Émilion. But don't miss out on the smaller wineries! Our house is surrounded by the vineyard Château de Lionne. They specialize in matching wines with asian cuisine. Just up the hill, in Cérons, in a beautiful ancient wine maker's home, the Clos Bourgelat also offers delicious tastings. And a bit further away, in Podensac, the Château de Chantegrive is well worth a visit, to discover the winery and learn more about wine production.
