The Domaine de Bosc Long vineyard
The estate was founded in 1855 by a great opera lover. Since 1970, Domaine Bosc Long has been under German ownership. The vineyard is located 60 km northeast of Toulouse in the heart of the Gaillac wine region. The vineyards cover an area of over 50 hectares, situated on the hills of the municipality of Cahuzac-sur-Vère.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the winery was generously expanded. The beautiful vaulted cellars, which were built from the bricks of the Tarn region, date from this time. A cooper for the production of wooden barrels was employed full-time at that time.
Today, Bosc Long is home to internationally renowned grape varieties as well as the regional varieties grown specifically in the Gaillac area. As white wines, Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Loin-de-l’oeil, Muscadelle and Mauzac are grown, and as red wines Merlot, Braucol, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Duras and Prunelard on clay and chalky marl soils.
The favourable climate with abundant rainfall in winter and a warm and dry summer make the conditions particularly favourable for viticulture.
