    Every year at the beginning of August, you are invited to share a weekend at the heart of the magnificent Park of the Château de Foucaud, in Gaillac in the department of Tarn. 
    The diversity of our wines is really discovered and enjoyed upon tasting them. Thus, the Gaillac Wine Festival offers you a unique opportunity, where all day long you won't cease to discover a different universe. A pre-dinner drink in the shade of one of the park's centuries old trees, a quiet lunch in the sun, an afternoon cadenced by the music that can be heard coming from here and there, a convivial concert and drinks gathering, etc. 
    But most of all let's not forget that the celebration is a time to be shared with family or friends. For this, the wine-growers offer activities that will delight those of all ages: wooden toys, tasting workshops, concerts, etc. And like every year, everyone will be full of awe during the fireworks of the festival's closing event!
