Graves is a very important subregion of Bordeaux, and was the first to establish Bordeaux’s reputation on the world stage. Wines from Graves were exported to England from as early as the 12th Century, and became a staple drink in English society for the centuries that followed. It became affectionately known as Claret, a term that still endures today. The name Graves is taken from the word ‘gravel’ as this region is particularly known for its gravel-rich soils, which are perfectly suited to growing top quality Cabernet Sauvignon. It is home to some excellent Chateau's, with the famed first growth of Haut-Brion being perhaps it’s most famous.
