The new centre at the winery in Tuchan will open to the public at the end of July and will aim to educate visitors about Mont Tauch and the Fitou appellation.
Katie Jones, UK sales & marketing director at Mont Tauch, said: "We decided to build a visitor centre and offer tours and tastings
as wine tourism is something
we feel is very important and works well in other countries, but France has so far lagged behind."
The shop will sell 96 different wines produced by the co-operative alongside locally-made cheese and honey.
