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.

Duc de Castellac is an easy-drinking wine for sharing, a modern range of very lightly oaked fruit-driven wines. The château on the label is the Maison de Peyrarède, a Bergerac mansion which belonged to a rich business family. Louis XIII once spent a night there. Widely appreciated through Europe, the wines of Bergerac go hand in hand with the humanism of Montaigne and his fellow essayist La Boétie. Later they were to inspire Cyrano with his verve and gallantry. Available in Bergerac red, rosé, dry white, CBM and Montbazillac... and now the range has been extended to include Médoc and Lussac Saint-Emilion.
