Description

The Bergerac wine-growing region is located around the town of Bergerac in the Dordogne immediately east of the Bordeaux wine region. Bergerac wines have always suffered from being so close to internationally famed Bordeaux. Today, the Bergerac wines are beginning to stand out as local wine makers have dramatically increased the quality of their wines without over pricing them. Appellations include Pecharmant and Monbazillac where a famous sweet white wine is produced.

The red wines are a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, sometimes supplemented by Côt or, less commonly, by Fer Servadou or Mérille. They are often dark in color, with full-bodied flavours. The white wines are mainly a blend of Sémillon with Sauvignon blanc, Sauvignon gris and Muscadelle, to which Ugni blanc, Ondenc and Chenin blanc are sometimes added. These combinations lead to the creation of fruity, dry white wines that can be powerful, and of medium-sweet or sweet wines that are aromatic and powerful.


Today, follow your guide along the Bergerac wine producing area. Visit three carefully selected wineries, meet the owners and/or winemakers and taste a wide election of wines including dry reds, whites, rosés or even sweet white wines. Lunch will be possible in the neighboring town of Bergerac or let one of our travel advisers organize a picnic on a wine estate. At the end of the tour return to Sarlat.
