Geocache Description:


Avant l’apparition du phylloxéra en 1878, la plus grande partie des 1283 hectares de Granzay était plantée de vigne. On y produisait un vin de qualité moyenne mais dont on tirait une excellente eau-de-vie.
A cause du phylloxéra vastatrix, un insecte du genre hémiptère qui attaque la vigne en suçant la sève de ses racines, il a fallut détruire la plus grande partie du vignoble. La même catastrophe a touché les communes voisines

Ces quelques rangs sont les derniers rescapés de la commune .
