The vineyards of Château Ferrande lie in the heart of the Graves Appellation, whose very specific terroir is of huge benefit to its 94 hectares of vines (88 hectares of red, 6 hectares of white). The soil is mainly sand and gravel with a surface of large pebbles which promote good drainage and help retain heat overnight. These conditions encourage rapid ripening and the production of elegant, stylish wines.
