Over the last several hundred years, France has been the most influential country in the wine world. France is the source of more well-known grape varieties (such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah) and winemaking practices than any other country. The names of many French wine regions such as Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne are well-known throughout the world, and the style of top French wines have long been the benchmark for winemaking in most wine-producing countries of the world.
French law divides wine into 3 categories: VDF (Vin De France) carries with it only the producer and the designation that it is from France. IGP (Indication Géographique Protégée) carries with it a specific region within France (for example IGP Languedoc). AOC (Appellation d'Origine Controlee) Wine from a particular area with many other restrictions, including grape varieties & winemaking methods.
The South West of France region stretches from the Atlantic to the vibrant city of Toulouse – the capital of the region – and from the sunny foothills of the Pyrénées to the majestic grandeur of the Massif Central. Southwest France is a lush, hilly wine region that occupies the corner bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the west, and Spain and the Pyrenees Mountains on the south.
The region is home to a string of more than two dozen winemaking appellations whose producers are united by a passion for place. Some of the world’s great grape varieties originated here (Malbec) and many of the area’s lesser-known varieties are grown nowhere else. Because South West France has so many fine indigenous grape varieties combined with such a wide range of soils and sites it offers an extraordinary diversity of wine styles and flavours.
Inviting, authentic, and brimming with character, the quality wines of Southwest France await your discovery!
