The port was the principal reason for Gaillac’s existence.
Wine has been grown upriver from Bordeaux in the Gaillacois, one of France’s oldest, most beautiful and most under-rated wine regions for 2,400 and more years.
Yet the quay(s) of Gaillac remain an enigma, a mystery.
The quays of Gaillac opened the region to the world.
Today those largely forgotten quays are the pass port to a beautiful fascinating and complex regional history.
