st sardos logoThe small appellation of Saint Sardos, (82 Tarn-et-Garonne, Occitanie) some 50km west of Toulouse and south of Montauban is unique in having a blend of Syrah and Tannat as the principal grapes supplemented by Cabernet and Merlot. As such it reflects its geography between the Languedoc (where Syrah is important) and Madiran (where Tannat is king) with a dash of classic Bordeaux varietals. The result is a fruity, spicy red or rose wine, which for the best cuvees needs a couple of years to mature.

The Saint Sardos Wine Festival takes place in the town of Saint-Sardos (82 Tarn-et-Garonne, Occitanie) on 22-23 April 2017
