Le Verdon-sur-Mer is situated close to Bordeaux. It is a port and resort town ideal for visting the land of Medoc vineyards. Sights that worth a look include Pointe de Grave, where ocean's waters and Gironde River meet and mix in a large area opposite Charentes' coast, the lighthouse of Cordouan and Fort of Verdon, a majestic assembly of bunkers, partially camouflaged by plants and surrounded by a moat. Passegers should also visit the vast Atlantic beaches, the Estuary of Gironde with swamps and forests, or take a boat trip on the Estuary or ferry to Royan.
"Medoc" is translated as ‘the middle land'. This area of France is named so as the peninsula is located between the Atlantic Ocean and Gironde Estuary. Such a position is a great advantage, because the huge watermasses act as thermal regulators that create the perfect microclimate for the vineyards. The initial Medoc vineyard appeared during the 16th century and most were established by the middle of the 18th century. As early as 1730, topping up of casks in order to compensate for headspace (ullage) and racking were in place to keep the wines longer.
