Quercy wine fair

Quercy winesThe winemakers of the Coteaux du Quercy VDQS celebrate their annual wine fair ( la fête du vin des Coteaux du Quercy ) at Montpezat-du-Quercy (82 Tarn-et-Garonne, Occitanie) on 10 August 2019.

Located between Montauban and Cahors (46 Lot, Occitanie), these red and rose wines are unusually (for the south of France) based on Cabernet Franc (40–60% of the blend) with Malbec, Tannat, and Gamay being the other allowed varieties.

The name “Quercy” comes from the latin “quercus” for oak – and was the name given to a large area of South West France until the current departement system was introduced in 1790. The Coteaux du Quercy area was known as “Bas Quercy” and is dominated by the high “Causses” or moorland which still has a lot of “scrub oaks”.

You will often find the wines of the Coteaux du Quercy in and around Cahors in the Lot Valley. People often see the Coteaux du Quercy wines as the “second” wine of Cahors, but are quite different styles, much less dominated by the Malbec grape, Often vinified as a fruity rosé! (The Cahors wine appellation can only apply to red wines.)
