The Bergerac wine-growing region is a sub-region of South-West France, located around the town of Bergerac in the Dordogne department, and comprises 93 communes. It is located immediately east of the Bordeaux wine region, effectively an extension of St. Emilion along the Dordogne river. 1,200 wine-growers cultivate an area of 12,000 hectares (30,000 acres). The Bergerac area contains 13 Appellations d'origine contrôlées ("AOC's") for red, white (dry, medium-sweet and sweet), and rosé wines.

The Bergerac vineyards extend across the southern part of the Dordogne department. Bergerac soil also features excellent drainage as a result of its proximity to the Dordogne River.

In 1936, when the boundaries of the Bordeaux wine-growing area were being drawn up, it was decided they should match those of the Gironde department. Bergerac and St. Emilion wines, which had long been sold under the generic name, Bordeaux, had to forge a new and separate identity overnight. The Libourne merchants who had traditionally sold these wines, now gave priority to wines with a Bordeaux label before even attempting to find a market for their other wines.
