The region – Côtes de Gascogne
Located in the Southwestern corner of the country, Gascony is the home of the legendary d’Artagnan from The Three Musketeers. It is also one of France’s most exciting regions for both wine and cuisine. Home to many indigenous varietals such as Petit and Gros Manseng, it is also particularly known for its foie gras, duck and goose dishes.
