Floc de Gascogne

It's History

An old Gascon recipe

Floc de Gascogne is in fact the lovely continuation of an old Gascon recipe from the 16th century, a recipe that the distant ancestors of our winegrowers made famous to the prominent people of that era.

«Lou Floc de Nouste», «the bouquet of flowers of our home», literally translated, was therefore christened Floc de Gascogne in 1976, when it was first put on the market.
