Where The Wines Come From


Cahors, situated in the southwestern part of France, is renowned for its robust and age-worthy Malbec wines. This historic wine region, nestled along the meandering Lot River, has also become an emerging hub for natural winemaking. With its limestone-rich soils and favorable climate, Cahors provides an ideal setting for sustainable viticulture. Natural winemakers in the region prioritize organic and biodynamic farming practices, cultivating Malbec grapes with minimal intervention to showcase the terroir's unique characteristics. By eschewing chemical additives and relying on natural fermentation, Cahors' natural wines express a depth of flavor and complexity that reflects the region's rich history and rugged landscape. These wines often exhibit dark fruit flavors, firm tannins, and a distinctive earthy minerality. As the demand for authentic and terroir-driven wines continues to rise, Cahors' commitment to sustainable winemaking ensures its place as a leader in the natural wine movement.
