Vin du Coq

Centuries astern Gaillac merchants started to brand their barrels with a cockerel and when bottling would use a distinctive bottle shape, today the cockerel remains Gaillac Wines traditional brand mark.

I’ll explain more at the end of this page !

The branding was necessary because Bordeaux merchants were passing off as ‘Bordeaux’, the superior wines of Gaillac and pocketing the extra profit.

Dream of  a region blessed with it’s own benevolent micro climate, noted for exceptionally beautiful landscapes, gourmet foods, a wide variety of produce and ‘Vin du Coq’.

Today the Gaillac reputation is being rediscovered, by whom and why is quite a story.

Vin du Coq, more

Centuries astern Gaillac merchants started to brand their barrels with a cockerel and when bottling would use a distinctive bottle shape, today the cockerel remains Gaillac Wines traditional brand mark.

The branding was necessary because the only way to export Gaillac wines was to send them in barges (gabbare) down the turbulent Tarn river to be sold off the quays of Bordeaux.

Bordeaux merchants were passing off as ‘Bordeaux’, the superior wines of Gaillac and pocketing the extra profit, hence the brand mark burnt onto ever Gaillac ‘tun’ and barrel.

Gaillac wines passed into obscurity during the late 19th century phylloxera epidemic which destroyed most of the vineyards in Europe, most notably in France.

Dream of  a region blessed with it’s own benevolent micro climate, noted for exceptionally beautiful landscapes, gourmet foods, a wide variety of produce and ‘Vin du Coq’.

Happily for us, today the Gaillac reputation is being rediscovered, by whom and why is quite a story.

Gaillac et le coq

Gaillac are wines with an amazing history.

As if the above is not enough, the Gaillac story includes roots that go at least as deep as the Phoenicians

Archaeologists tell us it was the Phoenicians who planted the first vines and Gaillac was where  Dom Pérignon worked for 11 years supervising the wines

Champagne

It was at Gaillac that Dom Pérignon learnt how to make sparkling wines before the Church sent him onto another region where he introduced the sparkling wine techniques by creating Champagne.

I hope you will enjoy discovering Gaillac wine as much as I have.

A word of caution, Gaillac is a seductive region, you may find you want to live there !
