French Connections
South West Wine Region

From the Dordogne in the north to the Lot valley in the south and the western Pyrenees, the South West is home to a fascinating range of grape varieties and styles producing luscious dessert wines of red, white and rose.

For a true flavour experience try the wines from Bergerac, Buzet, Gaillac, Monbazillac and Cahors to the east of Bordeaux and Gascony, Madiran and Jurancon nearer the mountains.
