Region Info/ Origin
Gravel means "Graves", an important sub-region of the Bordeaux wine region. Then, much of the land sold without a Chateau name was simply called "Graves". Situated on the left bank of the Garonne River, southeast of the city Bordeaux and stretch over 50 kilometres, Graves is rooted in the tradition of wine-making. The region flourished till today producing large quantities of red and white wine for distribution and drinking pleasure.
