The appellation, named after the historic city of Vayres, is located in the north of the large area Entre-deux-Mers (Bordeaux). But it has nothing to do with the area Graves to do. The area covers 600 hectares of vineyards on gravelly and sandy soil on the left bank of the Dordogne, It applies to dry and sweet white wines from Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadelle and Merlot Blanc, as well as to dry red wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Carmenère, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot.

The red grape variety comes from France, The name is probably from the French word for blackbird (merle) because these birds like to snack on the very sweet berries when fully ripe.
