Bergerac WineThe Bergerac wine region in south-west France, encompasses an area along the Dordogne river. Despite the region's long, varied history, Bergerac wines often play second fiddle to the famous cuvees of Bordeaux, just to the west. Indeed, the wines of Bergerac are made in the image of Bordeaux from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, albeit in a significantly softer, less-serious style.
The area's vineyards cover the hilly land on either side of the river valley in the southern half of the Dordogne administrative department. This centers on the small city of Bergerac, around which there are a scattering of AOC appellations that fall within the region. The most famous of these are Monbazillac, which produces exclusively sweet white wines, and Cotes de Bergerac, responsible for the slightly higher-quality red and white wines of the region.

The chancel is Romanesque and composed of a pre-chancel and apse; the nave has three bays doubtless dating from the 15th century and is, itself, preceded by a 19th century porch-belfry. On the eastern side, a low 19th century, three-foiled vestry encircles the chevet.
