The wines of Gaillac, one of the oldest vineyards in France

Today, the Vins de Gaillac winegrowers are 300 passionate professionals who offer you a very rich and varied palette, made up of AOP Gaillac, AOP Gaillac Premieres Côtes (White) and IGP Côte du Tarn wines. It is the diversity of the terroir , which allows the development of a whole range of wines, to please all palates. Original grape varieties make up generous and elegant blends. Come and discover Mauzac, Loin de l'œil, Baucol, Prunelart and all the unique and ancestral grape varieties, valued by the winegrowers.

>>>> Zoom on the dovecotes of the Tarn and the Welsh region: Here is an element of the small architectural and cultural heritage of the Tarn not to be missed! The dovecotes in the Tarn vary greatly in shape, location and the materials used in their construction. Why are there so many? Pigeon droppings, columbine have long been the only input allowed in the vineyard! This is why, to promote the production of this natural fertilizer, dovecotes have been built in the 4 corners of the vineyard. There are more than 1,700 of them to discover during your travels. There is even a route des Pigeonniers , which goes through Gaillac, of course!
