Discovering the wine region of Armagnac

Armagnac is a very Aromatic brandy from the Gascony region in the far southwest of France. Armagnac was the first brandy in France and is said to date back over 700 years to the early 15th century. If this is true, it makes Armagnac one of the oldest distilled spirits produced in Europe. Despite its Long history, Armagnac is often confused (and compared) with its more famous cousin, Cognac.

On the surface, the two are very similar: they are both wine spirits from southwest France, produced in essentially the same way and from similar Grape varieties. But there are subtle and essential differences between the two, which are the source of great regional pride. The two most obvious differences between Armagnac and Cognac are the region of origin and the Flavor profile. Armagnac comes from Gascony, 120 km southeast of Bordeaux.

DO Terra Alta makes orange wine official

In the last board meeting of 2021 for the regulatory council of DO Terra Alta, in Catalunya, Spain, a long list of changes was approved.
