Pin It

Perfection lives along the fertile banks of the Dordogne – in some of the finest vintages in the world, in sumptuous cuisine, and in thrilling bikeways coursing through a pastoral setting.

In this tranquil corner of France, tidy villages share a forested valley with elegant châteaux. Wine makers tend cherished grapes with squinty-eyed care. This rich culture embraces old ways, and we’ll do the same as we sample the region’s namesake vintages, pause for a picnic with longtime VBT friends, explore one of France’s 100 most beautiful markets, head into the cavernous underground of St. Emilion, and so much more. Perfection!
