Before railroads, vineyards near the Garonne and the Dordogne were living under the authority of Bordeaux. Due to its geographical location and royal ties, the Port de la Lune dictated over South-West wines.
The South-West region of France is vast and diverse and can be divided into four distinct areas; Massif Central Piedmont, Moyenne Garonne, Bergeracois & Duras and Pyrénées Piedmont.
The South-West’s most popular grape varieties include: Manseng, Tannat, Négrette, Duras, L’en-De-L’el, Mauzac, Fer-Servadou, Arrufiac, and Baroque. All of which give the wines their own distinct personality, authenticity and typicity.
