About Cadillac

Cadillac Alley, France

Cadillac is a small commune in the Gironde department of Aquitaine, France; its population is only about 2,400. It is located near Sauternes, known for the sweet dessert wines it produces under the Cadillac AOC designation. The name of the commune was adopted by Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac, founder of Detroit and Governor of Louisiana, on his arrival to what is now the U.S. The Cadillac division of General Motors, and Cadillac, Michigan, are named after him.
