Bernard took the reins, to continue the work of his father Robert, an outspoken advocate for natural wines with a centuries old approach to winemaking. Robert, had researched and replanted over a dozen varieties (7 in the Mauzac family alone) indigenous to Gaillac that had all but vanished. It is now Florent and Romain, Bernard’s sons, who have taken up the cause. Established in 1805, Domaine Plageoles has been passed down from generation to generation and are one of the oldest winemaking families in the AOC and they are thoroughly invested in retaining the traditions and quality for which this oft-overlooked AOC is now receiving well-deserved praise.
