These ‘enfants terribles’ of Gaillac are fanatically devoted to the lost grape varieties of the South West. Varietal wines from Duras and Prunelard, a range of white Mauzacs from different sub-varieties of the grape, the rare Verdanel, and above all Ondenc, from which comes Vent d’Autan, one of the finest sweet white wines of France.
Useful information: Bernard (in charge) speaks English, his father Robert (the eminence grise) none. Open Monday to Saturday 8.00 -12.00 and 14.30-18.30. Appointment advisable and groups received.
