A Self-Guided Wine Tour In Southwest France

On a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon in September, we took a self-guided driving tour of the Madiran Wine Country in Southwestern France. What an amazing experience! We found a beautiful vineyard and we were able to see the grapes looking ripe and near time for picking. The tasting room was absolutely lovely with stone walls and dark oak furnishings.

The village of Madiran looks like something out of a post card. The rough stone buildings and cobblestones make you feel like you have stepped through a time machine. After taking advantage of the complimentary wine tasting, we purchased some of our favorite bottles and enjoyed the scenery. What a wonderful afternoon! We highly recommend this little village as a stop on your next trip to the French wine country!
