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 perhaps holding a dinner party with friends? If you are in this area of the Dordogne, on holiday or living here and want to know more about Bergerac wines but getting to the vineyards is difficult, then a home wine tasting with Max from Duck & Truffle may be just the thing for you.
From 18.00-20.00 Max comes to your home with nine Bergerac wine varieties plus wine glasses and nibbles and spends 2 hours sharing his knowledge. For more information, click here.
Perfect for those who want to know 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 area's northern vineyards and the next in those in the south. We aim to visit three vineyards each day, and on average each tasting will include 5 wines - so during your wine weekend you will sample 30 Bergerac wines.
We carefully select vineyards based on our regular visits and own experience of tasting. All the vineyards are small, family run businesses 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 caves 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.
