The word "lande" would originate from the Celtic term "landa" which refers to poor and uncultivated lands where broom and heather grow.
This difficult soil is favourable for grapevines, providing only few but high-quality grapes. One of the most famous terroirs is Lalande de Pomerol.
Conditions are optimal to produce a great wine when, as at Château Pré la Lande, the land culminates on the slope of a hill overlooking the Vallée de la Dordogne.
A unique land
Based in Pineuilh on the slope called Sainte Foy Côtes de Bordeaux, the soil of Château Pré la Lande is exclusively made of clay on top of limestone sometimes showing on the surface which guarantees a wine that combines elegance and a strong character.read more +
