If wines were only all the same, that would be easy to learn and remember, but also incredibly boring. Each country has their own classification peculiarities but all are based on the famous laws Napoleon laid down in 1855 to rank and protect the Bordeaux vintages.


The Cavados wine regions has three appellations The AOC Calvados area which include the Calvados, Manche and Orne departments, and parts of Eure, Mayenne, Sarthe, and Eure-et-Loir. The AOC Calvados contains 70 percent of the total production. The more restrictive AOC Calvados Pays d’Auge area is limited to the east end of the department of Calvados and a few adjoining districts.
