Near Gaillac at Castelnau de Montmiral (81 Tarn, Occitanie) is a Gaillac B&B at Chateau de Mayragues – a 12th Century medieval castle with a Bio-dynamic vineyard!
Your hosts will be happy to provide a tasting of the Chateau’s wines!
The Chateau lies 10 km/7 miles north of Gaillac and 30 km/18 miles west of Albi ( for its Cathedral and Toulouse Lautrec Museum). And only 18km /11 miles away is the rather magical hilltop village of Cordes-sur-Ciel (literally “in the sky”!) – see www.tourisme-occitanie.com

Gaillac is one of the lesser-known wines of the South West and is notable for its distinctive local grape varieties such as Braucol and Mauzac.The Chateau produces Gaillac wines – a medium/sweet white Gaillac Doux, Gaillac reds and a sparkling white Gaillac Brut. Biodynamic wines are made by using biodynamic methods both in growing the grapes and during their vinification into wine. . Biodynamic .wine production uses organic farming methods while also employing soil supplements prepared according to the formulas of Rudolf Steiner, and following a planting calendar that depends upon astronomical calculations and having respect for the soil as “a living and receptive organism. – see Gaillac Wines
Our personal recommendation for a visit and tasting is Domaine de Labarthe at Castanet – you must try their Cuvée Guillaume!
