History: Château Maresque is a 25 acre vineyard more than three centuries old. It lies at the heart of the vineyard Gaillacois, on the right bank of the River Tarn, on the first hills. March 1999 the new owners, embarked on the creation of Château Maresque.Situated in the north of the Tarn departement with 3 different terroirs. The age of the vineyard enable Gaillac to offer numerous traditional grape varieties which produces a great variety of elaborate wines. 

Soil: The wines are produced from a vineyard, which has mollassic clayey-calcareous soils which contain high proportions of limestone and granite in their subsoils.

Climate:The southern slopes, low in altitude are whipped by the hot winds from the Mediterranean and the dry Autan wind that is influenced by the Atlantic ocean. This sunny climate, granting early ripening, together with the good orientation and terroir, produce generous  wines, with a beautiful deep colour and complex aromas in which candied fruit, blackcurrant and spices are softly blended.The wines are powerful with a dense body, well structured and with round tannins.

Grapes:The different terroirs and the age of the vineyard enable us to offer traditional and highly original grape varieties. White grapes: Mauzac and Loin de l'œil supplemented by Sauvignon. Red grapes: Duras, Braucol and Prunelard - supplemented by Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
