Gaillac Wine Festival

Gaillac (81,Tarn, Occitanie) holds its annual wine fair (Fete des Vins) 3 – 5 August 2018.
Situated between Toulouse and Albi, the wines of this region tend to be a variation on the Languedoc style.

Between the wine-producing areas of Bordeaux and Languedoc-Roussillon, the Aquitaine and Midi-Pyrénées vineyards have succeeded in perpetuating their wine-growing vocation across a mosaic of very different terroirs, gathered under the banner ” Vineyards of the South-West “.

In Gaillac, the word “diversity” is often mentioned when talking about the vineyards. The selection of wine is no exception to the rule, providing a range of exceptional splendour and dignity. The Gaillac wine-growing region is located 50 km east of Toulouse in the northern part of the Tarn region. From the east of the town of Albi, in the area of Cunac, to the city of Saint-Sulpice, the vines run along two banks of the Tarn River. In the north, vineyards start a few kilometres above the medieval city of Cordes-sur-Ciel and then drive 40 kilometres south to Graulhet.
