Situated on the high plateau of Barsac, the estate of Chateau Piada mentioned in the Hommages d'Aquitaine in 1274 is one of the oldest vineyard of Barsac & Sauterne. Protected from winds off the Atlantic by the vast Landes forest, the vineyards of Graves and Sauternes stretch along a narrow band of land on the left bank of the Garonne river between Bordeaux to the north and Langon to the South.
Vineyards are primarily located on gravely terraces with a limestone sub-soil. The entire area has a temperate climate due to the presence of the river.

The late harvest gives Sauterne & Barsac their absolutely unique characteristics.
A golden color that deepens with age to that of antique gold.
A bouquet of tropical fruit, honey, linden flowers and acacia with hints of almonds and spice.
Especially round, well-balanced taste which develops into a full long aftertaste.
