FRANCE

 

 

Alsace

Alsace, at the eastern border of France, occupies a unique space between Germany (it is on the banks of the Rhine) and France (the other side of the Vosges mountains).

Beaujolais

Overlooking the west banks of the Saone River, Morgon is one of the ten crus of Beaujolais. Unlike much of Beaujolais, Morgon is known for its full-bodied, often tannic wines that age exceptionally well.

Bordeaux

Cotes-Des-Francs is the smallest appellation in Bordeaux, made up of three small villages: Saint Cibard, Tayac and Francs.

Burgundy

Chablis

While Chablis is officially part of the Burgundy region, it is quite distinct, both geographically and stylistically. Chablis is actually around 100 kilometres from the nearest neighbouring Burgundy vineyards, and is actually closer to Champagne than to other subdivisions of its region.

Champagne

The three main sub-regions in Champagne are Vallée de la Marne, Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs. The Côte de Sezanne and Côte des Bar is respectively 30km and 100km south of Epernay

Corsica

Corsica is perhaps the birthplace of wine production in Europe. Its indigenous grapes have been vinified since at least 570BC, initially by the Phoenicians.

Jura

Arbois is the main wine producing region of Jura, in the east of France. Spanning 13 towns and vineyards, Arbois covers 850 hectares of wine producing land.

Languedoc

The Languedoc is a large region spreading over three main departments: Aude, Herauld, Gard. The main AOC in Languedoc are Fitou, Minervois, Corbieres, Coteaux du Languedoc, Limoux, Faugeres, Picpoul-de-Pinet.

Loire Valley

Along the long river there are a multiple choices of region offering wines with different personalities.

Normandy

Normandy is the one region of France that does not have a reputation for winemaking, thanks to its erratic, and generally cool, weather. It is just right, however, for growing apples and fermenting them into cider.

Provence

To taste a glass of wine from Provence is to taste the sum of experience developed over a staggering 2,600 years.

Rhone Valley

The Rhône Valley is divided into two distinct zones: the Northern Rhone and the Southern part. The total Production of the Northern Rhône accounts for less than 5 per cent of the total Rhone wine production, but most of the premium wines will be situated in this area.

Roussillon

French by nationality but Catalan by heart, this region produces one of the most exciting wines in the world! Discover more here

Savoie

Winemaking in Savoie goes back a long way. Before even the Roman conquests, the Celtic Allobroges of ancient Gaul were growing ancient vines here, as they continued to do as part of Gallia Transalpina, the first province of Rome to the north of the Alps.

Southwest

The Southwest of France hides a lot of different regions such as Jurancon and its amazing sweet wines or Cahors and its full bodied Malbec wines. Discover more here!
