World famous wines of Bordeaux and Entre Deux Mer
"Le Terroir" is a wonderful world which denotes the richness and gifts of the land. It relates to the geology, the geography, climate and qualities of an area and its effect on what is produced there. It relates to its food, its warmth, its soil and even its spirit.
The terroire around Les Galineaux is rich not only in its wines but in truffles, foie gras, tomatoes (from Marmande), prunes, oysters and even macaroons!
