wine tasting near Bordeaux or Cahors

Jump to last reply

It seems as though stopping to taste wine at the wineries themselves isn't a casual option in France like it is in Napa or Sonoma Valley. What can you suggest as a way to taste a variety of local wines?

Not counting the bottles we drink in the gite.

(I'm wondering if southwestern France has the sort of regional tasting rooms I found in the Vaucluse. The one at Gigondas was particularly nice -- very welcoming, helpful, and
reasonably priced.)

My family members are interested in St Emilion or Cahors in particular.
