A great name for a village in the heart of the vineyards that is worth a visit! Located 40 km south of Bordeaux, the village of Sauternes, with a population of about 700, is famous for its white wine, the best sweet wine in the world. The most prestigious of these wines is produced at Château d'Yquem. Unaffordable for the average person, it can be preferred to other chateaux whose value for money will be more earthly. The area is dotted with castles and old houses. In the heart of the village, the church of Sauternes has a pretty Romanesque apse. The proximity of the Ciron, a tributary of the Garonne, makes Sauternes an ideal place to relax for nature lovers.
