Pyrenees Wine Region

The Pyrenees foothills and ranges provide a stunning back drop to a region that amply rewards those seeking wines of character and interest.

The Pyrenees is famous for its high-quality boutique wines of the French Bordeaux variety.

Fragrant Shiraz and complex Cabernet Sauvignon excel through the region.  Although traditionally a red wine region, the wineries are now producing high quality Methode Traditionale Champenoise, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Riesling on tasting.

Varietals such as Sangiovese and Tempranillo are also emerging from a number of wineries.  The intimacy of the area is evident when visiting any of the wineries in the region; the winemakers are often on hand to discuss their personal wine styles with visitors.

The tour takes you to signature wineries for tasting, included also in the tour, a Cheese platter, Lunch at a winery restaurant, or similar, complementary gift pack with a bottle of French Bordeaux wine.
