Gascony is a wine growing region in the southwest of France. It has a mild climate with warm summers and short winters. It is here that Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Colombard grapes are used to produce Armagnac. It is also the home of the Madiran Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée. These wines are required to be made up of 40-60% of the Tannat grape and are usually supplemented by Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Fer.

I don't think there's anything on this planet that more trumpets life than the sunflower. For me that's because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that's such an admirable thing, and such a lesson in life."  ~Calendar Girls~
