Sainte-Foy-Bordeaux is an appellation located at the eastern edge of the Bordeaux wine region in south-western France. It produces dry wines, both red and white, of average quality. It can be argued that Saint-Foy-Bordeaux is more properly part of the Bergerac region, being situated outside the natural eastern boundary of Bordeaux and just a few miles west of Bergerac. In addition, the red wines of Sainte-Foy-Bordeaux are very similar to red Bergerac.
The appellation laws pertaining to Sainte-Foy-Bordeaux are strict. They specify the communes where the grapes may be grown (Landerrouat, Gensac, Pessac-sur-Dordogne and Pellegrue et Massugas), the planting density of the vines (more than 4500 per hectare) and even the vine-training techniques permitted for each grape variety.
Red wines bearing the Sainte-Foy-Bordeaux title must be produced from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec or Petit Verdot, and white wines must be made principally from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc or Muscadelle with a maximum of 10% of Merlot Blanc, Colombard, Mauzac or Ugni Blanc.
