CRADLE OF MALBEC
During the 1st century, roman legions invaded the Quercy Region in Southwestern France, establishing the city of Divona Cadurcorum which centuries later became Cahors city and planting the first vines. Throughout centuries back in the 12th century, Malbec wines from Occitania Southwestern France Region, including Cahors wines, were exported to the United Kingdom, through Bordeaux. Centuries after centuries, exports included Netherland, Northern Europe, North America, Germany... In Russia they were adopted by the tzar court as a prestige wine including for the orthodox Church as wine for the Holy Mass. After the 19th century, because of migrants, Malbec expanded its vineyards much outside Cahors, throughout Southwestern France, in Bordeaux and as far as to Argentina.
Malbec is a powerful and vigorous varietal, getting its best expression and outstanding character on the sunny lands and terroirs of its native Southwestern France vineyards of Cahors.
