The Vineyards & Wines of the South West
South West France has many fine indigenous grape varieties which combined with a wide range of soils results in an extraordinary diversity of wines. From the famous Malbec wines of Cahor to fresh dry whites, rosé and sparkling wines.
Cahors, the capital of the Lot region, is the birthplace of Malbec wines, the distinctive deep red wine known by its medieval nickname of ‘Black Wine’ due to its deep, dark colour. During the Middle Ages, the ‘Black Wine’ was drunk all over Europe by kings, emperors and Popes.
