From Sauveterre to the Canal de Garonne by bike

[ Cycle routes Canal des deux mers à vélo ] [ The canal de Garonne by bike from Bordeaux to Agen ]
  • 19 km
  • expert Level Expert

In the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers area – between the two rivers, the Garonne and Dordogne, nicknamed ‘seas’ – you cross an ocean of vines! The terrain is hillier here. You join the Canal de Garonne at La Réole. This town conceals a few treasures behind its ramparts. In its maze of little streets, don’t miss the 13th-century church of St-Pierre, nor the esplanade next to a former Benedictine Abbey which offers a fine view over the Garonne Valley.

Entre-deux-mers appellation (AOC) wines

le vignoble de l'entre deux mers

Between the Dordogne and Garonne Rivers (nicknamed ‘mers’, or ‘seas’, here), the beautiful geographical region known as Entre-deux-Mers produces the widest range of Bordeaux wines: reds, whites (dry and sweet), rosés and old-fashioned clairets. This is the largest area in the département of Gironde for producing AOC wines, and it accounts for a massive 85 % of Bordeaux wines (that is, wines made in the Gironde département).
