A.O.C Bergerac Red

A.O.C Bergerac Red

In short

The Bergerac Red are fine, supple wines, whose predominant characteristic is the fruit. Easy to drink, they can be consumed young. Fresh, fruity but with a good structure, they will hold the conversation with terrines of poultry livers or cheeses with character. Where do they excel? In conviviality! These friendly wines will be the ideal companions for hams, terrines and rillettes… from Périgord, of course.

A little history...

The Bergerac Red regional appellation was recognized as an Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) in 1936. It covers the entire territory of Bergerac.

This AOC produces most of the red volumes in the vineyard.




The Bergerac Red appellation is located in the south of the Dordogne department, more particularly the district of Bergerac.

It is possible to produce wines in the Bergerac Rouge appellation in more than 90 municipalities surrounding the town of Bergerac. The nature of the soils reflects the extent of the vineyard: from lacustrine limestones, to sands through clays to gravels.

The multiplicity of configurations linked to reliefs, waterways and exposures creates a large number of local climates and allows each winegrower to differentiate himself.
