The vineyards of Montravel form a link between Bergerac and Saint Emilion and are technically one of the nine subdivisions of the Bergerac AOC mainly for dry white and red wines on the western edge of the appellation area.
In the valley of the Dordogne river, the vineyards spread across the region’s low, rolling hills. The permitted grape varieties reflect the appellation’s location on the edge of Bordeaux: red wines are mainly Merlot, while the dry white wines are largely Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
The Montravel appellation is centered on the village of Lamothe-Montravel, just 16km east of Saint-Emilion, with the Dordogne river flowing along the southern boundary of Montravel and the forests of the Landes stretching to the north and east. See the Vins de Bergerac website.
