Drink responsively

To assist you, we have organised a big evening of tasting at the restaurant of the Halles de Bacalan: La Familia. It’s a great spot, just opposite the Cité des Vins. We were more than 400 people there to savour the produce of the Périgord which perfectly completed this exquisite evening.

Tasting a good wine does not mean drinking nonstop, can we agree on that? As you know, too much alcohol could be dangerous for your health! Thanks to the onsite expert advice of the appellation’s representatives, we were able to appreciate each wine.

It is not an easy task when you are not a professional or a knowledgeable amateur, to define what we like in a good wine? We all know that meat is best served with red wine and fish with a dry white wine, but is not always that simple! The aromatic subtleties and the organoleptic complexity of a wine are defined in so many ways, that it is best to listen to the experts.

Drink responsively

The wines of Bergerac, are a blend of wines, it is an obligation of the “cahier des charges” of the appellation (The document assembling individual AOC Regulations) Why? By completing themselves, the varietal wines bring a complexity and richness that are sought after in wines. The winemaking process is separate and then the wine is assembled, like a perfume made of various aromatic essences in order to make it unique! Two grape varieties are needed for a white and three for a red.

Too much alcohol could be dangerous for your health

It is not only the grape variety that defines the wine, it is also the soil and in Bergerac and around the Duras region, we are spoiled…The clay-limestone and gravelly soil is perfect for our rounded, fine and strong wines. The Dordogne River flowing not far from here brings its part of humidity in the air and silts in the soil. Visit the Coteaux de Monbazillac in autumn… and look at the sea of clouds, which has something to do with the quality of our late sweet white wines!
