Wonderful Wine Tour & Guides!

Wendy and Kate of Vin en Vacances took us on a wonderful wine tour of the Minevois and were so informative! We learned so much about this wine region and its rich history, and had a wonderful time, too. They are so engaging and the best guides we’ve ever had. We plan to take another tour next time we’re there! We recommend Vin en Vacances to anyone traveling in this area. It made the trip!

Great day of wine and touring

We were a group of 6 (4 adults and 2 kids). Our guide Wendy was very knowledgeable and passionate about the region and it’s wines. Though it was a holiday weekend, Wendy was still able to find small and quaint wineries for us to visit. She arranged a delicious luncheon in the historic village of Minerve. It was a great highlight of our trip to Carcassonne.
