About the winery
Alain ROTIER, Francis MARRE and their team cultivate a family organic vine estate, located in south of Gaillac, on a gravelly plateau corresponding to the middle alluvial terrasse of the Tarn river.

The deep bond between the vine-growers and their terroir here gives birth to great Gaillac wines, reflections of unspoiled nature. Born for a large part of local grape varieties Duras(red) and Len de l’El (white), they are original and unique.
