Winery: On some of the most beautiful land in southwest France, Château Tour des Gendres sits in the appellation of Bergerac. This centuries-old stronghold of classic French food and wine culture is located on the bank of the Dordogne River, a 90-minute drive east of Bordeaux.

The de Conti family has run the farm here since the early 1900s, but only in 1986 did Luc de Conti and his brother, Jean, decide to plant the vineyard and embark on a new adventure of viticulture and winemaking. In 1994, they became the first in the region to move away from pesticides and chemicals and turn to 100 percent organic farming. The property is planted with Sauvignon, Sémillon and Muscadelle for whites, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec for reds. The de Conti family produces two delicious entry-level wines: Tour des Gendres Classique Blanc and La Gloire de Mon Père (the red), both recognized as classic wines for the region. Along with the iconic cuvées of Moulin des Dames and Anthologia, these wines reflect the experience and passion of the de Conti family, as well as the rugged charm of their singular terroir.

Château Tour des Gendres is a household name found on virtually every fine wine-list in France, yet it is little-known in the United States. These wines provide outstanding value; they are approachable and pleasurable, crunchy and bright, with an abundance of fruit.
