The area that produces Pécharmant wine is full of grand châteaux that welcome visitors.
Home of one of France's noblest wines.
Part of the famous Bordeaux wine route, the town of Bergerac in the Dordogne cultivates one of France's most celebrated wine appellations, Pécharmant. Getting here from Bordeaux will take just over an hour, and along the way you can visit some of the vineyards and winery châteaux that open their doors to visitors for guided tours and tastings, including Château de Biron, Château de Gageac, and the impressive castle Château Monbazillac. Another interesting and very different draw for mildly adventurous types is the Aeroclub which has operated out of Bergerac's small airport since 1930. Here you can take a plane ride to take in this lovely wine country from the air.
