The vineyard

Château de Salettes, a great wine from Gaillac

The vineyard estate of Château de Salettes

The Château de Salettes, built on a rocky spur in the 13th century, is surrounded by its 10 hectares of vineyards. Facing southwest, on a clay-limestone soil highly conducive to vine cultivation, it benefits from an exceptional geo-climatic situation. Under François I, Salettes white wine was already on the table of the King of France.

Salettes, the cradle of the millennium-old Gaillac vineyard, continues today to give birth to quality wines with the complicity of the La Croix des Marchands estate.
