Haut-Montravel is a white wine appellation in the South West region of France covering the communes of Fougueyrolles, Nastringues, Port-Sainte-Foy-et-Ponchapt, Saint-Antoine-de-Breuilh and Vélines.
This appellation is famous for the sweet wines produced primarily from Semillon and some Sauvignon Blanc with Muscadelle also being permitted. The sweetness is derived from the partial drying of the grapes before vinification commences.
Haut Montravel wines can adopt the additional 'liquoreux' denomination when Noble Rot affects the grapes.
