Episode 4: Black wine from Cahors

French wine maker, Pierre Gouttenoire, made “black wine” in Cahors. Today you will learn about Malbec from Cahors where the grape comes from.

Contrary to Bordeaux and Burgundy, Cahors is not a region that’s on everybody’s lips. Yet Malbec was born there, and certainly this grape is super well known thanks to the many plantings in Argentina. An inky grape giving origin to a black wine, Cahors AOC, that you should know about.

I call myself Rebecca Wine on social media mainly because my name is so long, and wine synthesizes who I am. Since the late 90'ies, my world has revolved around wine in every moment. From what I do for a living to who I ended up marrying. From the outside, I bet it seems a little boring to have just one obsession, but it's so strong that there's no room for anything else (except of course my babies).
