About the winery

Domaine Gayrard has been producing wine for several centuries, with a long history that includes being one of the first vineyards in the Gaillac region to bottle Gaillac wines. In 2013 the family estate was revived, and replanted, and in order to get the best expression from the terroir while also preserving it, the vineyards were converted to organic and biodynamic farm practices. Established on a limestone plateau from the Jurassic Period, the windswept lands are located between the Mediterranean and oceanic climates, making the area highly favourable for the cultivation of vines. In addition to the vines, there are olive trees, truffles, and wheat, as well as a range of fruit trees including cherry, fig, apple and pear.

History & Geography

The vineyard has two different soil types. Cool and draining clay-limestone soils allow for the production of fruity red wines combining roundness and finesse. The shallow limestone soil of the historical parcels, add a bright and refreshing acidity to the white wines. Currently, the Domaine Gayrard winery covers thirty hectares of vines. Half of this area sits in the middle of the vineyards of Gaillac in Cestayrols. The winery uses twelve varieties of grapes, many of them regional. If you want to take a trip to the winery, you can take a guided tour or visit their vineyards for wine tasting.
