Circuit de Blay

Duration 03:00
Difficulty Medium
Distance 11.3km
Denivele 222m

Circuit that takes you on wide paths, from the plateau to the bottom of the valley through a natural space in symbiosis with the AOC vineyard.

It is on the limestone plateau, about 300 meters above the Lot river, that the major part of the vineyard of Cahors. A hundred years ago, the smallest hillside favorably exposed was covered with vines. Devastated at the end of the XNUMXth century by phyloxerra, they did not find a successor capable of ensuring the subsistence of the peasants. Today, the vine is mainly established in the Lot valley. The causse remained less cultivated but the Cahors which is raised there is equally worthy of interest.
