Where The Wines Come From


Bergerac, located in the southwest of France, is known for its picturesque landscapes, historic towns, and diverse wines. In recent years, the region has also embraced natural winemaking practices. With its limestone soils, maritime climate, and gentle slopes, Bergerac provides an ideal environment for sustainable viticulture. Natural winemakers in the region prioritize organic and biodynamic farming methods, cultivating traditional grape varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Semillon with minimal intervention. By eschewing chemical additives and focusing on natural fermentation, they produce wines that reflect the terroir's unique characteristics. Bergerac's natural wines are known for their purity, freshness, and expression of fruit flavors, with reds offering rich, ripe berry notes and whites showcasing crisp acidity and floral aromatics. As the demand for authentic and terroir-driven wines continues to grow, Bergerac remains a vibrant and innovative player in the world of natural winemaking, offering a taste of its rich heritage and countryside charm with each bottle.
