Graves is a wine appellation in the Bordeaux region of France that is quite close to the famous city of Bordeaux on the left bank of the Garonne River which produces red, white and sweet wines.
The Graves region which covers some 3000 hectares has long been loved by the aristocracy in England who called the wines from this area 'claret'.
Sub-regions of Graves include Pessac-Leognan, Sauternes and Barsac and also Cerons.
Some beautiful sweet wines and bold red wines are produced in this region.
