Saint-Estèphe is one of the largest communal appellations of the Médoc, with a surface area of 1370 hectares. The vineyard is planted on well-drained gravel outcrops which protect the vines from excessive humidity. The sub soil, made up of clay and limestone, gives the wines their unique personality. Saint-Estèphe wines are tannic, deep and powerful and with age they take on body, fruitiness and delicacy.

Château Léo de Prades covers 14. 5 hectares of vineyard in the Saint-Estèphe appellation. It belongs to the vineyards of Marquis de Saint-Estèphe and Chatellenie de Vertheuil in the appellations of Saint-Estèphe and Haut-Médoc. Around 30 winegrowers from Saint-Estèphe and 40 from Vertheuil cultivate their vines on a very regular terroir of gravel outcrops and clay-limestone.
