Cadillac AOC is a sweet white wine from 20 communes in the southern part of the Cadillac-Côtes de Bordeaux on the right bank of the Bordeaux region. The town of Cadillac after which the AOC is named lies directly across the Garonne river from the Sauternes AOC, a far more famous producer of sweet dessert wines.
