The wines of Southwest France offer a combination of variety and value that is hard to find anywhere else. From fruity to powerful reds, crisp to rich whites, awesome sweets, fortified selections and bubbles, it’s a region that offers virtually every wine style imaginable..
With more than 6,000 vineyards the Sud-Ouest covers an expansive territory of 47,000 hectares that stretches from the hills of the Massif Central to the foothills of the Pyrenees, from the banks of the Garonne River to the Atlantic beaches of the Basque country. The area boasts an infinite variety of soils and diverse micro-climates that nurture the growth of 300 grape varieties, it is the birthplace of such great grapes as Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Tannat through to grapes that have never travelled and which produce marvellous wines on their home turf, like Petit Manseng, Négrette, Prunelard and Ondenc.
Any true wine lover appreciates the discovery of new flavors, varieties and regions, and the southwest offers a wealth of wine experiences that are new to many, yet rooted in tradition and history. This ancient region is the latest New World of wine.
