The Dordogne is known to millions of visitors for its history, natural beauty and gastronomy, but did you know that the Bergerac region is also home to over 12,000 hectares of vines, 13 AOC and more than 900 wine-growers?
Sometimes overshadowed by their world famous neighbours in Bordeaux, Bergerac vineyards offer great value wines of a similar quality.
Wednesday to Saturday, we run tailor-made wine tours to introduce you to the spectacular wines of Bergerac.
We collect you from your accommodation (there is a small additional cost for pick-up outside of a 10km radius from Tremolat) and, whilst travelling between vineyards, we share our local knowledge and explain about the different terroirs and the rich history of the vines providing some key facts before you taste the wines.
During the day you will experience everything from the luminous Bergerac Sec to creamy Monbazillac via Pécharmant, a full bodied red.

Are you a large group on holiday or holding a dinner party with friends? If you are in the Dordogne, living here or on holiday and want to explore more about Bergerac wines but getting to the vineyards is difficult, then a home wine tasting with Max from Duck & Truffle may be perfect for you.
From 18.00-20.00 Max comes to your home with nine Bergerac wine varieties plus wine glasses and some nibbles and spends 2 hours sharing his knowledge. For more information, click here.
Perfect for those who want to know that little bit more about Bergerac wines our weekends, based in South West France, run October through March.
During a wine weekend we spend one day focused in the North of Bergerac and one day in the South and on average each tasting will include 5 wines - we aim to visit 3 vineyards a day so during your wine weekend you will sample 30 Bergerac wines.
We have carefully selected vineyards based on our own experience of tasting and visiting them. All vineyards are small family run and offer great value wines. For more information, click here.

Don’t get us wrong, we don’t know every vineyard, but living here gives us the opportunity to get to know wine makers and local cave à vin to try varieties and appreciate the different wines. We are passionate about food and wine, especially local, and want to share this with you.
