Last weekend the first International Malbec Days took place in Cahors.

A nice weather and more than an hundred exhibitors were present (including of course the Chateau Paillas) on the Valentré bridge, to share their passion with many professionals, wine lovers or new comers.

For this event, the Valentré bridge was dressed with four huge canvas that gived it a look of sailboat representing the relationship between the wines of France and the new world.

The event was completed on Friday and Saturday evening with a cozy atmosphere show, where people tasted malbec wines and enjoyed a gourmet buffet prepared by major chefs of Cahors.

We want to thank all people, for joining us for this great celebration of Malbec wines.

Bleeding of Malbec


In early spring, with longer and warmer days, the vine starts to grow.

The first symptom is the rise of sap thought the vine stock which we can see on pruned canes, we say that the vine is bleeding ...

On this video in real time, you can see the abundance of this bleeding which will stop after a few days when healed, the sap will then be devoted to the growth of buds.
