Vin en Vacances
Vin en Vacances has been running vineyard tour from Carcassonne for English speaking people for 10 years and we highly recommend them. They collect you from Le Voyageur in the morning in one of their air-conditioned and comfortable vehicles and drop you back at the end of the day. No need to worry about driving! Just sit back, relax, savour the wine and enjoy the sights!
They have a fabulous range of wine tours available any day including Sundays, here are a few suggestions:
•Canal du Midi Wine Tour
Olive tasting, wine tasting cruise on the Canal du Midi, gourmet lunch, the village of Minerve and a visit to a Languedoc winery visit and tasting.
•The Roman Vineyards
The wines of La Clape were highly prized by the Romans who transported them back to Rome to be enjoyed there too.
•Minervois & Saint-Chinian Market
Organics wines, a market visit, the delicious cassoulet lunch and a visit to the village of Minerve.
•Domaine Gayda & Limoux
Visit spectacular Domaine Gayda, taste their wines, lunch in their restaurant then taste sparkling Blanquette du Limoux wines that pre-date Champagne, and visit the abbey of St Hilaire.
Prices include pickup and transport, winery visits and tastings and a delicious lunch with wine.
