Since 1805, seven generations of the Plageoles family have produced wine in the Gaillac region of southwest France. Robert Plageoles began the journey of reviving 'lost' indigenous grape varieties, by searching for wild vines growing in the local Grésigne forest, to reintroduce them into their wine making. Today Bernard, and his sons, Florent and Romain, continue the work and make fascinating wines with seven different types of grapes: Mauzac, Ondenc Duras, Autan, Braucol, Verdanel. and Prunelart. For the last 20 years, they have been making natural wines on the rich clay-limestone soil using no chemical fertilisers, herbicides, dry yeasts, and without any chaptalisation (the practice of adding extra sugars to unfermented grape juice). All their vineyards are organically certified.

Mauzac roux is used to make the Vin de Voile wine. Left in oak barrels for 7 years  without topping up the part of the wine that evaporates over time, a ‘voile’ (layer of yeast ) appears over the wine, resulting in a controlled oxidation. Acetified and aged for over five years in barrel, Nathalie's vinegar has a beautiful, nutty flavour, delicate and lean acidity and rich floral aroma. It has a glorious pale straw color and flavor notes of pears, walnuts and herbs just like the original wine.
