With these 60 appellations, the Bordeaux region represents the largest AOC vineyard in France. The Bordeaux vineyard extends at altitudes of between 15 and 120 m on the slopes and terraces that border the Gironde estuary and the banks of the Garonne and Dordogne rivers.

The nearby Landes forest mitigates the oceanic influence and protects the vineyards from the winds.
Domaine de la Rouquette is one of the oldest châteaux and vineyards in Bordeaux.
