Gourmet Food and Wine

Food
Various high-quality regional products are on offer on the market stalls of Quercy: black truffles, foie gras, assorted types of goat cheese, Périgord nuts, saffron, melons, lamb of Agneau fermier du Quercy quality, and many more. A treat for your senses! The atmosphere at these picturesque, colourful markets is warm and authentic. Cahors, Figeac, Gourdon, Martel or Saint-Céré all boast traditional Lot markets. In winter, the extravagant truffles markets in Lalbenque, Quercy's capital of black truffles, as well as in Limogne-en-Quercy attract numerous gourmets. In summer, you can even stroll across markets by night in some towns (e.g. Cahors, Figeac, Gourdon and Souillac).

Discover and enjoy the Lot region all year round, with all its culinary delights, tasty produce and freshly prepared regional dishes! (for restaurants, see Les bonnes tables du Lot).

Wine
The wine-producing region of Cahors covers 3,850 hectares and extends from the Lot Valley up to the limestone plateaus. With a tradition of producing strong red wines that dates back to antiquity, this is one of France's oldest wine regions. The strong and full-bodied black wine produced here develops a delicate and refined aroma over the years.
In a hillside location in the South of Quercy, a mild, fruity wine is cultivated which is usually drunk young. The region's rosé is perfect to quench your thirst on a hot summer's day. Visiting a wine cellar and sampling some wines will be one of the highlights of your holiday!
