TOULOUSE & LANGUEDOC WINE TOURS

In the Southern central part of France, only distant from 1 1/2 hour from Spain, the Capital of the Midi-Pyrénées region, Toulouse, is ideally situated halfway between the South West wine region that looks towards the Atlantic and the Languedoc wine region looking towards the Mediterranean. 

 

Departing from Toulouse we at Ophorus have decided to bring you to some of the most famous vineyards that both the South West and the Languedoc wine producing regions have to offer. Most of the them are known only to a small number of wine buffs and it will be a pleasure for us to finally introduce these different wines to a greater number of persons who want to discover the more authentic wine regions of France.

CAHORS VINEYARD WINE TOUR

Toulouse wine tours Cahors wine tour

Originally from Cahors, locally known as Cot or Auxerrois, Malbec is the dominant grape variety of Cahors wines. It is supplemented by up to 30% Merlot and Tannat. As a reflection of the character of the Malbec variety, Cahors wines can be rather tannic when young, and benefit from aging. There are 4,400 hectares (10,000 acres) of Cahors vineyards. The designation AOC Cahors may only be used for red wines even though there is also some white and rosé wine produced in the same area but it falls under the designation Vin de Pays du Lot instead.
