Wine... A vocation steeped in history
Château de Salettes, built on a limestone outcrop nestled amongst the low slopes, is the historical birthplace of the vineyard whose vines are spread all around. The vineyard is planted in a clay and limestone soil highly suited to wine-growing, and is south facing to take advantage of the sun at its highest point, conditions that combine to place the vineyard in an outstanding geographical and climatic location.
The blend of typical varieties that make up the appellation, such as Duras and Braucol for red wines, or Mauzac and Loin de l’œil for white wines, are the essence of the wines’ richness and character. Château de Salettes wines are listed among the great Gaillac wines and were already being served at the table of king François 1. Ageing takes place in 400-litre oak beam barrels, producing a fine, subtle wine.
