Frommer's Budget Travel LogoBudget Travel, an American travel magazine, runs a series of articles on “the best places you’ve never heard of” where travel specialists give the readers their inside tips. They interviewed Britt on one of the secret gems in south western France: Bergerac. This is how it begins:

Britt Karlsson: Cofounder of BKWine, with her husband, Per. The Paris-based company publishes wine newsletters and leads small-group gastronomy and wine tours throughout Europe (

Born in Sweden and now living in Paris, Britt Karlsson spends half the year visiting about 200 wineries in Europe and South America in her roles as wine journalist, wine judge, wine consultant, and tour guide (on wine-themed trips, of course).

Bergerac is the name of both a wine region and a small city, but travelers often bypass both in favor of nearby higher-profile Bordeaux. And that’s a blessing, says Karlsson. Bergerac’s cobblestoned streets, inviting markets and shops, and location on the Dordogne River are so appealing that Karlsson now periodically includes the town as a stop — staying at the central Hôtel de Bordeaux — on her tours.
