One of the Oldest Vineyard in France!
The cultivation of vines was imported to Gaul by the Phoenicians four centuries before the birth of Christ and developed in three main areas: Côte-Rotie, Hermitage and Gaillacois. The presence of vines (and their use for the production of wine) became established in Montans. From the 2nd century B.C. this community near Gaillac was home to a large pottery workshop dedicated mainly to the manufacture of the amphorae used to transport wine.
The wines of Gaillac come in 8 versions: red, white, “rosé”, sweet, “perlé”, sparkling, primeur and late harvest.
