The port was the principal reason for Gaillac’s existence.
“The Port of Gaillac 1863” measures 200 x 100 cm (60″ x 39″), by Gordon Frickers
Sold, this painting was commissioned as a foyer centre piece for the Museum ‘inVINcible VIGNEron‘ at Tres Cantons, Montels, near Gaillac.
The Port of Gaillac 1863 on busy May morning is an awesome painting to see…
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.
