Country: France
A country viewed by many as the home of fine wine, it is almost unique in terms of how embedded food and wine is in the nations culture. Given the diverse geography, with so much of the country providing the climate and soil suitable for viticulture, it is no surprise that its produces such an extensive and varied selection of wines. It is the country from where the vast majority of the New World's most popular "international" grapes and stylistic influences originate. While there might seem to be an alarming disparity between the most sought after wines (were a case might set you back as much as a deposit on a small house) and the millions of gallons of vin de table filling up the European wine lake every year, there is so much great value to be found between the two extremes. Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, and the Rhone may still dominate the market for fine wine, but regions including the Loire, Alsace, Languedoc & Roussillon and the South West are increasingly becoming excellent sources of good quality, affordable wines.

Region: South West France
South West France consists of a number of varied of sub-regions. Excluding Bordeaux, it encompasses but is not limited to: Bergerac, The Cotes de Duras and Cotes de Marmandais at the very north; Cahor and Gaillac in the northeast; the Cotes de Gascogne in the center with Madiran just below, and finally Jurancon and Irouleguy in the southwest. While the varieties that form the white and red Bordeaux blends are common, the region is also home to a number of indigenous and unique varieties.

Sub-Region: Sancerre

Type: White
White wine is a wine whose color can be pale-yellow, yellow-green, and yellow-gold colored. The wine is produced from a variety of grape varieties. The flavor and color comes from the juice of the grape and sometimes the skin of the grape as well. Interestingly, not all white wine comes from white grapes. Some select red grapes are used as in Champagne.
