Gaillac Wine Region- Midi-Pyrenées, France

Gaillac is one of the oldest wine-growing regions of Gaul (an ancient region of Western Europe). It is located in the Tarn department in south-western France. A history of destruction of vines due to extreme cold and disease contributed to a dynamic wine environment with a wide diversity of grapes grown and great range of wines to be enjoyed:
