The left bank (Medoc)
The Medoc is well known as a wine growing region located on the left bank of the Gironde estuary. Its name means in old French "The land of the middle" as it is located between the ocean on one side and the Gironde river on the other side.
The right bank (Saint-Emilion)
The vineyard and the landscape are listed by the UNESCO as World Heritage. Just a handful of wonderful highlights are honoured by such a distinction.
