  • About

Ste-Foy-Bordeaux, about 220 ha/543 acres of vineyards in the extreme east of the bordeaux region on the border with, and arguably more properly part of, bergerac. The appellation, technically part of the Côtes de bordeaux group, is named after its principal town, just 22 km/14 miles west of the town of Bergerac. Its red wines are very similar to red Bergerac and bordeaux aoc, while its much rarer white wines are often sweet and mostly undistinguished.
