Discover the wine!

Test your knowledge of ‘Wine Speak’ at the Maison des Vins in
Bergerac. See if you can identify peppery notes or floral ones with
the ‘Scratch and Sniff and Identify’ exhibition. Sip a local vintners
offerings, free to you—even if you don’t score well on the test!

Pechament (Charming Hill)
Drink an aged red now, a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, pairs best with something big and bold and a little brash.

Bergerac Sec
Sit by the pool and sip the refreshing Bergerac sec (white) or summertime favorite, rosé. Tuck a bottle of either into a picnic basket, find a spot in the shade then relax and enjoy. Produced in the vineyards surrounding Bergerac.

Take a sip, it’s sweet. Like Sauterne, it is a fully botrytised wine, harvested by hand over several days. Medieval popes coveted it, renaissance princes commanded it. Drink it with dessert or cheese or with Foie Gras, as the locals insist you must.
