The Sainte-Foy-Bordeaux wine appellation in the Bordeaux region of France is a small producer of both red and white wines. It lies in the Entre-Deux-Mers region at its eastern extremity.
The appellation rules permit the production of red and white wines. Red wines use the principal grape varieties Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec (Cot) and Merlot which must comprise at least 85% of the blend. These varieties can be supplemented by the addition of Carmenère (which must be less than 10% of the blend) and Petit Verdot.
White wines use the principal grape varieties Muscadelle, Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Sémillon. As with the red wines, the principal varieties must comprise at least 85% of the blend. Small amounts of the secondary varieties Colombard and Ugni Blanc can also be used.
