Why visit Sauternes?
The wine territory of Sauternes includes 5 municipalities that together produce 35,000 hectoliters of wine per year. The humidity and warmth of its environment favors the cultivation of the Sémillon grape variety through the proliferation of a fungus: Botrytis. This grape gives the wine aromas of candied fruit. To benefit from the Sauternes appellation wines must be harvested exclusively by hand. The wines that are produced in this wine territory are sweet white wines of very high quality. Thanks to Winalist you can visit the many castles that produce exceptional wines.
