Vinitude Wine School

Come to the Languedoc wine region and learn about the wines of the world with Wendy and Kate, our qualified wine teachers.  We offer a great range of courses for all levels of knowledge and sessions to focus on grape varieties and wine regions plus a regular slot for Viti-Vini for those people interested in how wine is grown and made.

We are passionate about wine and want to share our knowledge with you!

‘Taste Training Workshop’ – these regular workshops are a great way to improve your tasting skills and a fun way too. Every month we offer a Taste Training workshop for beginners and improvers and each time we will be tasting something different so you can come along to as many as you fancy. €25 per person

Variety Nights – are a great way to understand different grape varieties and how they can differ so widely and why? €35 per person

Region Sessions – We will be running courses that will introduce you to many of the wine regions of the world. Coming up in 2019 are Priorat the cult Catalan, Burgundy North to South, A Toe into Italy and Eastern Languedoc. €35 per person

Viti-Vini – how wine is grown and made is a fascinating subject and one we love to teach. To help teach this subject we will sometimes enlist the help of one of our wine maker friends for some of the more technical stuff..! €25 per person

The wine school is based in the Minervois, about 20 minutes from Carcassonne and easy to combine with a holiday in the region.  We can also help with accommodation if needed.
