Perfect day in Cahors, in the Lot Valley
Today, Benoît and Stéphanie strolled the medieval streets of the city of Cahors, in the Lot valley, in search of the vines. They crossed the Valentré Bridge,a monument listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is part of the pilgrim route of Camino de Santiago.
Our two bloggers then went to Villa Cahors-Malbec where the Union Interprofessionnelle du Vin de Cahors (UIVC) explained to them all the wonders of Cahors wines and showed them where the best wine estates were located. They discovered the history of Cahors wine and were challenged to learn the art of tasting Cahors Malbec thanks to the advice of passionate winemakers. They now know how to serve and drink these exceptional wines. They ended their day in Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, one of the most beautiful villages in France.
