The village of Saint Mont (350 inhabitants) is one of the most typical and best preserved in the Gers département.
Standing high on a rocky outcrop, the old village is crisscrossed by steep streets with a large number of picturesque timber-framed houses dating back to between the 12th and 18th centuries.
One of the highpoints of village life is organising the « Saint Mont, Vignoble en Fête » festival, held on the last weekend in March. At this event, the whole village and its population relive the medieval past, notably when it comes to commemorating the Mise en perce, the first tapping of a barrel of wine.
In the heart of the village, across from the Monastery, the Maison des Vins is home to the Winegrowers’ Union, along with the Committee of the SAINT MONT Wine Trade Professions (CIV Saint Mont).
