Medoc Vineyards differs from other wine regions thanks to a unique combination of different characteristics: its size, its economic weight, the variety of its crus, the respect for tradition alongside the adoption of the latest techniques, the prestigious brands and of course its terroir.
A vast vineyard: The Médoc and its 8 appellations represent 15% of Bordeaux vineyards, covering more than 16 000 hectares. The Médoc appellations are amongst the most well known amongst wine amateurs and the most quoted by connoisseurs.
Médoc vineyards sell almost 100 million bottles per year. 50 million bottles are exported every year (40% for the European Union, 60% for the rest of the world). The annual turnover is between €600 million to €1 billion depending on the vintage (volume and prices vary every year). This is almost half of the export turnover for Bordeaux red wine.
Médoc has approximately 600 chateaux and almost 1000 brands, including very small properties of just a few hectares but with a large proportion of vineyards of over 20 Ha. Wines are available from €5 to €500 per bottle.
