Situated between the rivers of Garonne and Dordogne which also provide the area’s southern and northern boundaries, Entre-Deux-Mers literally means 'between two seas'. Entre-Deux-Mers is a large area of Bordeaux stretching from the edge of Bordeaux town in the west to Bergerac in the east. The soil of Entre-Deux-Mers is predominantly sand and clay. The appellation AOC Entre-Deux-Mers applies specifically to dry white wines made in the region. These are made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Muscadelle and Ugni Blanc. The only appellation to produce a greater quantity of white wine is the generic, catch-all Bordeaux AC appellation.
