Regional info

Cahors is one of the oldest wine regions in Europe where vines have been planted since Roman times. This is also the birthplace of the Malbec grape variety where it has been planted since 50BC. Cahors wines must have a minimum of 70% Malbec in the blend. The vineyards of Cahors were reinvented in the early 1970's when a few forward thinking producers planted Malbec, Tannat and Merlot, Georges Vigouroux was at the forefront of this rebirth of the Cahors wine region.
