The Vignerons de Buzet
winery was created in 1953 by wine growers who wanted to restore their wines to their former glory. Initially classified VDQS, the Buzet wine producing area obtained Buzet AOC status in 1973.
Located in the heart of the Garonne Valley, the land of "good living", in the Southwest of France, Buzet itself is a charming village on the left bank of the Baise, which has seen centuries come and go since the time of the Roman legions. The wine from the Vignerons de Buzet reflects a history as varied as the soil of the hillsides of the appellation’s 27 communes.
Nearby, the vast Landes forest, the largest in Europe, agreeably tempers the oceanic climate. The climate and soil are propitious to wine growing and this has resulted in the planting and development of one of the oldest wine producing areas in France. Today, the Vignerons de Buzet vineyards are bound on one side by the Garonne River and on the other by the Landes forest. They extend over 2,000 hectares in production, located on 40 km of hillsides in the heart of the Pays d’Albret.
