The soils, climates and topography of the South West are as wide-ranging as its wines. The presence of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea mean that much of the region has a maritime climate, but there are inland areas which make use of the drier, hotter summers.

The region's wine portfolio, includes sweet wines from Jurancon, tannic, full-blooded reds from Cahors and Madiran, sparkling wines from Gaillac, and dry whites produced from a wide range of different grape varieties.

Meanwhile the region’s rivers, such as the Garonne, Dordogne, Lot and Tarn bring alluvial soils types (clay, sand, gravel) to much of the area, while the foothills of the Pyrenees and the plateaux below offer a variety of stone types and altitudes.

Our instructor, Thierry Givone, will take you on a tasting tour from sweet to dry with a selection of wines and grapes from this unique region.

About the instructor:  Thierry Givone was born and raised in Burgundy, with two uncles working for a prestigious winemaker in Beaune. After graduating from the Wine and Spirit Education and the Wine University of Bordeaux, he created Wine Tasting in Paris to share his passion for wine. He is a jury member for wine competitions and provides tastings for visitors from all over the world. We are fortunate that he is opening his private tasting room especially for WICE members.
