The Irouleguy appellation was set up in 1990 [although there has been viticulture here since at least the Romans] for red,rose and white wines [although over 70% are red ] from 9 communes around the small village of that name located about 25 miles soth-east of the town of Biaritz in the foothills of the Pyrenees very close to the Spanish border in the heart of the Basque country. The reds and roses are a blend of tannant,cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon while the whites are a blend of corbu.petit manseng and gros manseng. The whole appellation only has around 250 hectares under vine
