South-west, or Sud-Ouest in French, has been named ”Wine Region of the Year 2017” by the American wine magazine Wine Enthusiast. Congratulation! A well-deserved award to a wine region that makes a host of interesting and unusual wines.

Southwest is really a wine region for the curious wine lover. The region has 47,000 hectares of vineyards divided between 29 AOP and 13 IGP. It stretches from the Atlantic coast south of Bordeaux down to the Pyrenees. Some famous appellations are Madiran, Cahors, Bergerac, Gaillac and Jurançon. All are absolutely worth exploring although not all of them are easy to find on export markets.
