Last updated: June 10, 2024


There is a large amount of confusion surrounding the historic vineyards of ‘middling Bordeaux.’ For many consumers, Entre-Deux-Mers is a shorthand for good value, dry white made from vineyards located between the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers.

Before 2022, only white wines could be marketed under the appellation banner; however, from the 2023 vintage onward, red wines can also be labeled as Entre-Deux-Mers AOC. If you’re still baffled, read on.
