  • About

Pécharmant, red wine appellation for bordeaux blends within the bergerac district in south west france. A steady 400 ha/1,000 acres of vines were dedicated to the appellation in 2012, planted on gravelly, south-facing slopes just east of the town of Bergerac. The wines are some of Périgord’s longest-lived reds but little of it escapes the region, however. Within the zone, some sweet white wine is made in the much smaller rosette appellation.
