    Wines of Southwest France named "Wine Region of the Year 2017" in the USA

    08 February 2018

    On Monday 29 January, Wine Enthusiast magazine honoured Southwest France as “Wine Region of the Year 2017” at an awards ceremony in Miami.

    A leading magazine in the field, Wine Enthusiast gives out annual awards to the year’s top-performing people and companies in the wines and spirits sector.



    This year, Wines of Southwest France, with help from Sopexa for press relations in the United States, was awarded the prize for “Wine Region of the Year 2017”. 



    According to the magazine, “Southwest France continues to grow on the global radar, with wines lauded for their excellent value and finesse. Its distinct subregions, with their stunning, scenic backdrops, produce unique, terroir-driven and agreeable wines, giving neighbors like Bordeaux a run for their money. Sommeliers started the buzz, and consumers in the U.S. and beyond have caught on.”
    A great vintage for 2017!
