Wikipedia, Sept. 08, 2014 (Gironde; in Gascon Gironda) is a department in the Aquitaine region situated in southwest France. The Bordeaux wine region is in the Gironde. Gironde is one of the original 83 departments created during the French Revolution on 4 March 1790. It was created from parts of the former provinces of Guyenne and Gascony. From 1793 to 1795, the department's name was changed to Bec-d'Ambès [no publications in LC database] to avoid the association with the revolutionary party, the Girondists)
