Vire-sur-Lot

 

Vire-sur-Lot has an exceptional terroir and has some of the most renowned wine-makers of the designation. The Quercy vineyard arose thanks to the Roman colonization. In the 15th century, due to the layout of the Lot by Colbert, the barges called “gabarres” would transport the Cahors wine from the Vire port to Bordeaux. In 1850, the vineyard was 40 000 hectares wide in Vire, a third of the area. Presently, out of the 40 000 hectares in the Lot, 350 are in Vire-sur-Lot.
