A unique experience in Bergerac
A 1st birthday deserves a party doesn't it? Come on, let's (re)visit Quai Cyrano, the Wine & Visitor centre. Follow the guide!
Let's set the scene:
A fabulous building, a super-cosy 150m² setting celebrating Bergerac and Duras wine, two vibes: peace and quiet with the Récollets Cloister (17th century) on one side and the stunning terrace with incredible views of the Dordogne on the other.
Want to find out more?
Let's start on the ground floor with the 2020 version of Bergerac-Sud Dordogne Tourist Information. An open-plan and connected space presents everything the Périgord region has to offer. Dive right in with 7 screens including 4 touchscreens; one of them is a touch table with itineraries for you to explore our very own Pays de Bergerac. Don't panic if you prefer good old-fashioned paper: there are still flyers and brochures available.
The gift shop is all about local produce: wine (of course!) and some regional delicacies such as chocolate-covered nuts, flavoured vinegar and Croquants du Périgord biscuits. There's an area for bookworms and souvenir shoppers too. Ah I almost forgot: you can stop here to charge up your mobile and check your emails …
The Maison des Vins Bergerac-Duras is on the first floor
Take the stairs up from Tourist Information; when you get to the top you can step into the world of Bergerac – Duras wine. You'll soon feel at home in a setting inspired by welcoming designer furniture with added warmth from wooden features and (most importantly) friendly wine bar advisers. They'll give you a social, educational and professional introduction to wine. Then you can treat yourself to your own selection of wine (sold at grower prices) and soak up the setting, the Récollets Cloister (17th century) and/or the stunning terrace with views of the Dordogne as you sample one of the week's selected wines served with goose rillettes or foie gras.
What's the best bit?
Quai Cyrano is open 10am-7pm, 7 days a week, all year long!
