The vineyards of Fronsac and Canon-Fronsac are  on the doorstep, whilst the vineyards and historic town of St Emilion (a UNESCO World Heritage site) is only 12km (7½ miles) away.
The Fronsac wine region covers an area of hills along the Dordogne and l’Isle rivers, west of Saint Émilion.
Historically, Fronsac wine was very popular in the region, although in modern times it has been a bit overshadowed by its more prestigious neighbour. Merlot is the most important grape giving the wine body and richness.
