Cote de Duras

>> Wednesday, April 11, 2007 Parisians love the accent of the wine growers in Duras in south-western France. To make a sure success of a marketing campaign for products from the region – bring up a native, they seem to think. So this year we will probably see a lot of Durassiens (?) in Paris. It is the 70th anniversary since they received their appellation Contrôlée. Nevertheless, it is a rather little know district, but this they intend to change. The Duras wines will of course be the leading stars in the promotions but they will also feature other local gastronomic products, for example the famous ‘pruneaux d’Agen’ (dried plums). More info (on the unfortunately not very up-to-date site in English - the French version is more informative):
