Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux vineyard is situated on a narrow band 40 miles long and 3 miles wide along the right bank of the Garonne river.
This area overlooks the river and offers
hilly landscapes of exceptional beauty.
Thanks to the Gallo-Roman colonisation and to the presence of Benedictine monks in the middle ages, it is rich in historical heritage, with ancient manor houses, fortified castles, and romanic and baroque churches.
You can come across beautiful buildings called “folies” built by the bourgeois inhabitants of Bordeaux in the XVIIIth century which constitute just one of the delightful discoveries of one of the most charming parts of the ‘Bordelais’.
In fact this area of vineyards in Bordeaux was well-known to the Romans. The conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar brought the first vines to the Cadillac region.
