This venerable Gaillacoise domaine has been passed from father to son in an unbroken line of Hirissous since 1827. The current proprietors, Jean Paul and Nicolas, represent the fifth and sixth generations of vignerons to run the estate.
The Gaillac AOC straddles the Tarn river, approximately fifty kilometers northeast of Toulouse. Perhaps as a result of its location on the river, which facilitated transportation to other regions, Gaillac was one of the first viticultural centers of ancient Gaul. Grapes have been cultivated here for the purpose of making wine since the first century A.D.
