With a strong sense of place, and unique native grape varieties, South-West wines have always championed their regional identity. In Gascony, the Basque country, Pyrenean Piemont, Aveyron or the Lot Valley, wine is at the heart of culture, an integral part of the way of life, along with local gastronomy, and the love for rugby.

Bored with bland wines? Head for the region where winemakers proudly cultivate their difference.
