Duc de Castellac is an easy-drinking wine for sharing, a modern range of very lightly oaked fruit-driven wines. The château on the label is the Maison de Peyrarède, a Bergerac mansion which belonged to a rich business family. Louis XIII once spent a night there. Widely appreciated through Europe, the wines of Bergerac go hand in hand with the humanism of Montaigne and his fellow essayist La Boétie. Later they were to inspire Cyrano with his verve and gallantry.
