Discover the top Dordogne wine producers
Sharing the same Atlantic influence as neighbouring Bordeaux, the Bergerac and Dordogne river region produce some very fine Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux blends.
The temperatures can be slightly warmer inland and so Dordogne enjoys dry reds, whites and rosés, as well as sweet dessert wines. You can look for regional names such as Bergerac, Montravel (dry white blends), Pécharment (big reds), and sweet wines from Saussignac, Rosette and Monbazillac.
