Bordeaux - Bergerac

BergeracBergerac is both a town and the largest wine producing AOC region east of Bordeaux. On the Dordogne River in a stunning landscape the reds are earthy and white wines crisp or sweet such as those from Monbazillac.

Bergerac is an area of proud, unpretentious family owned châteaux with vintners who are passionate about their wines. The regions are Bergerac, Monbazillac, Montravel and Pécharmant. At an 11th century Franciscan Friary housing the Maison du Vin, find which local châteaux are open to tastings and tours. Hotels and local restaurants are charming.
