The Chasselas de Moissac grape: a fruit of great character

art & culture

Discover this delicious white grape with a thousand virtues, just outside of Toulouse.

Enjoy a rustic interlude in Moissac about 50 kilometres from Toulouse, a lovely town surrounded by orchards and fragrant vineyards.

The climate of the valley allows the culture of many fruits, including that of the famous Chasselas de Moissac grape, which has made the reputation of the city. Come taste it in its myriad forms and discover its highly detoxifying properties. Its consumption helps to purify the body and to rapidly regenerate cells, so the Chasselas cure is a classic in the region. Moissac is, in fact, the only city to still have an ‘uvarium', a building where the Chasselas cure could be taken. During your passage through the medieval city you can also visit the Moissac Abbey, a masterpiece of Roman art.

And while you're there, book a table at 1474, the restaurant of the Hotel du Moulin, a gourmet fine-dining experience. The splendid views of the surrounding countryside and the bucolic banks of the Tarn are an additional attraction.
