Tursan VDQS

Tursan red winesThe vineyards of Tursan are situated on the borders of Les Landes, an extensive area that these days is covered with pines but was once marsh and sand dunes. The other neighbours are Gascony and Bearn. The soil of the 500 hectares of vineyards here is a mixture of clay and sand with some chalk and sandstone.
