Southwest France is a lush, hilly wine region located at the foothills of the Pyrénées Mountains. The area is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the west, Spain on the south and stretches northward to the edge of the Massif Central Mountains. The landscape is dotted with a great variety of terroirs. Grape varieties come from the neighbouring Bordeaux region with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc found in red wines and Sémillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle found in white wines. However, the region is known for its use of Negrette and Fronton for easy-drinking and fruity red wines, Malbec grape variety for full-bodied and tannic red wines, and Petit and Gros Manseng for wonderfully sweet and dry white wines such as the Jurançon AOC.
