Saussignac AOC

Description to Saussignac AOC

The small appellation is located as an enclave in the large Bergerac area in the wine-growing region of southwest France. Already in the Middle Ages the Franciscan monk and poet François Rabelais (1494-1553) in his famous work "Gargantua and Pantugruel" let the main character Pantagruel praise this wine. The vineyards cover around 100 hectares of vineyards in the communes of Gageac-et-Rouillac, Monestier, Razac de Saussignac and Saussignac. The sweet to sweet white wines are blended from the Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle varieties. Well-known producers are Château Court-les-Muts, Château de Miaudoux and Domaine de Richard.
