THE SOUTH WEST

The South West of France is the most diverse wine regions in France, and one of the oldest. Situated between the Bordeaux region and the Pyrénées mountains, this region is exceptionally sunny during the summer. It is a lovely region of mountains and plateaux, lakes and rivers. It is as diverse as the wines from region.

Wines from the South West are of excellent quality for the value. They have a unique personality based on local history and traditions.

Our Côtes de Gascogne wines are from the Gers region on the coast of Southwest France renowned for the production of Armagnac". Only wine produced from grapes harvested in the Gers can be called 'Côtes de Gascogne'. Today, almost two thirds of all vineyards in the Gers are set aside for the production of Vin de Pays Côtes de Gascogne wines. Vineyards in this region date as far back as the fifth century.

An oceanic climate tempered by the Landes forests to the west, the Pyrenees to the south and a mix of sunshine, rain and coolness, offers ideal conditions to get the best from its vineyards. Fertile soil and climate, secrets handed down through the generations and modern technology are key factors contributing to the distinctive flavors of Vin de Pays Côtes de Gascogne.

Our VDP Côtes de Gascogne Sauvignon and Ugni Blanc-Colombard Blend are both from an important estate that has been in the same family since 1912. Fruity, full and round, these wines, typical of the region, are delicious with fish and seafood.
