Auberge de La Salvetat - la nature vous invite's curator insight, March 19, 8:14 AM

Come and discover the wines of Bergerac ....

But backtracking upstream and east along the Dordogne will lead you to Bergerac, the largest of the Dordogne region’s wine appellations which, were it not for a quirk of France’s administrative map, would be part of Bordeaux and the département of the Gironde."
