The Midi Pyrenees region offers a diverse range of wines, including the famous AOC dark red Cahors wines, such as Malbec. The Cote de Bergerac wine tour has 4 circuits of around 150km and includes 100 chateaux which will show you the different appellations, such as Perchament. The Jurancon wine route, a smaller circuit in the south, passes near Pau around the foothills of the Pyrenees towards the Ossau Valley. Jurancon dry white is made from the Gros Manseng grape whilst the Petit Manseng grape makes a sweet white wine. These vines are planted in an amphitheatre style. Carry on around the mountains where you will find Madiran wines made from the Tannat grape. The Gaillac wine route, divided by the Tarn River, is known for white wines, both still and sparkling, produced from Mauzac and Len de I'El varieties.
