Monbazillac is one of the most famous dessert wines of France, known since the 14th century. The Dutch discovered it eas early as the 17th century when many Huguenots fled to Holland after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685. The vineyards, spread out over the southern slopes of the Dordogne valley, enjoy a temperate climate, favourable to the development of the noble rot caused by Botrytis cinerea, crucial to the production of the best dessert wines.

Château de Monbazillac is a listed building dating from the 16th century. It has belonged to the Cave de Monbazillac since 1960, and has a unique architecture combining medieval defences with Renaissance elegance. The château is located right in the heart of the vineyards which bear its name, and the view from its terraces provides an extraordinary panorama of the Dordogne valley.
