Archeosite of Montans

Presentation

The consumption of wine in the Gaillac area since the Gallic period can be seen in the presence of numerous shards of amphora. At that time, the Gauls, great wine lovers, imported the beverage from Italy, then Spain.

It was only after the 1st century AD, the Gallo-Roman period, that various clues lead us to believe that wine-growing and local wine production were started.

The Archeosite of Montans presents these archaeological witnesses in exhibition areas and offers vistors big and small the chance to dive into antiquity to discover the everyday life of the Gauls and the Romans who installed themselves on the land and knew how to make the most of the diversity of its natural resources to make, using a large part of the Roman empire,  and export the terra sigillata which made it famous.
