South West of France wine and food

For most of the people in France, South West means good food!

South West of France Wines and food

Because the wines are so diverse in South West of France, the food that will match these wines will be diverse as well.

Red wines are perfect with local food such as cassoulet or roasted duck.

Dry white wines are very good with river fish (such as trout or salmon) or with white meat.

Sweet white wines match well with Foie gras or as an aperitif.
