The vineyards of Gaillac was one of the
first growing centers in Gaul. The three different wine-growing
areas and the age of the vineyards enable Gaillac to offer numerous
traditional grape varieties. The diversity of the Gaillac vineyards
means that they can produce a great variety of elaborate wines,
a wide range of dry, sweet and "perle" white wines, red
and rose wines as well as sparkling wines.
Gaillac is an exciting place for a wine
tour. Enjoy the sights, aromas, and flavors of Gaillac as you increase
your knowledge of wines. Discover regional cuisine in local wine
village restaurants offering typical fare from south west France.
