Dordogne: Cheese, Wine & Art de Vivre
Nestled in the heart of southwestern France, the Dordogne is a feast for all senses. Highly regarded for its myriad historic monuments and pretty medieval villages, the department is characterized by a bucolic landscape of gentle river valleys, dense forests, and rolling hillsides blanketed in sunflowers and vines. Art de vivre, or the art of living, isn’t just another alluring French expression here, it is deeply intertwined with a rich gastronomic and viticultural heritage. Appreciating what’s on your plate or in your glass is elevated to an art form. And it all starts in the hands of dedicated producers.
