Pomerol

The birth of viticulture in Pomerol was marked in the 12th century by the installation of the order of the Hospitallers of Saint John of Jerusalem, who built a hospice in Pomerol serving as a stopover for pilgrims on their way to Saint Jacques de Compostela . The vineyard is attested from the Middle Ages, mentioned among the destruction of the Hundred Years War. The Pomerol vineyard is favored by the proximity of the town of Libourne, which has a small port for exporting wines.
The Pomerol vineyard is located on the plateau descending in successive terraces towards the Isle Valley, at the confluence of the Dordogne.
The soil of this plateau is formed on the surface of more or less compact gravel; clay and sandy. Everywhere the basement contains iron oxides which are called in the iron grime region.
