Fitou is possibly one of the best known red wines from Languedoc and maybe that’s because it was the first appellation for dry red wine in this region. Fitou is situated in the most southerly part of the Corbières and easily reached from Lagrasse where this tour departs from.
We take the very scenic drive south passing ancient vines clinging to rocky ground, their trunks as thick as a mans thigh. The landscape is rugged and wild producing spectacular scenery as we wind our way deeper into the countryside to reach the Fitou appellation. Here we will pay a visit to one of the stars of the region Katie Jones at her small winery houses in an old train shed which has been beautifully converted into the perfect place to make wine. Here we learn how the vines are grown and wine is made before enjoying a delicious tasting of Domaine Jones wines.
Depending on the time of year we will enjoy an outdoor lunch or head to a nearby restaurant to enjoy a tradition lunch made with local and seasonal produce.
Our final visit is to a small organic winery owned by husband and wife team who work the land alone producing some delicious Corbières wines both red and white. We will spend time viewing their cellar and before enjoying a delicious tasting of their excellent range.
