Fête Armagnac

The Flamme de l’Armagnac invites you to celebrate

Discover Armagnac vineyards, in the East of the Landes region, between Bordeaux and Pau, just a stone’s throw from the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrénées. The grape-picking's over, it’s time to distil the Armagnac. In the wineries, the stills are lit. Get away for a weekend and discover or rediscover Landes lifestyle, one-of-a-kind experiences: gourmet, let’s-indulge roadtrips, gastronomic breaks, and ever-so sweet prices.

On the agenda:

One-day grape-picking at the Armagnac Ecomuseum in Labastide d’Armagnac on 21 September www.chateau-garreau.fr

Did you know… Even today, Armagnac continues to be a craft product, made by winemakers and artisans with ancestral know-how. You’ll discover that there’s not AN Armagnac but Armagnacs: Bas Armagnac, Tenareze and Haut Armagnac. And, even though it’s sipped as an after-dinner liqueur, it’s also wonderfully-refreshing as an aperitif called FLOC DE GASCOGNE! While you’re here, take time to explore the South-West’s fortified villages and towns and highly-unusual places like the cyclists chapel, the solar farm in Gabardan and the Château de Ravignan in Perquie.
