Summer Visit to Natural Winemakers Chateau Plaisance in Fronton and Domaine Plageoles in Gaillac in the Cards
The shortlist of things I will do during my 2 weeks in France this summer is still in the planning stages.
In the wine department, I pretty much have my mind set on skipping the Corbieres and instead focus on lesser known Gaillac and Fronton appellations. They also have the advantage of being close to Toulouse which will be my base.
My search for wine stops has fetched 2 honest and down to earth natural wine producers, Chateau Plaisance in Fronton and Domaine Plageoles in Gaillac.
As important if not more to me than the ''natural wine' label is the fact that both domaines put the accent on local grape varieties (Negrette in Fronton and amongst others Mauzac and Ondenc in Gaillac).
