The Western Minervois

Caunes Minervois

We start our vineyard tour with a visit to a top producer of Western Minervois wines. We will explore the domaine, walk in the vines and learn how they are cared for and then visit the winery to hear and see how wine is made. Then we will enjoy an extensive wine tasting of their range of delicious and very well made Minervois wines.

From here it’s a short drive to the historical village of Caunes-Minervois famous for its pink marble and its recently restored abbey. Here we will be welcomed into Petra’s home for a delicious and traditional home cooked meal prepared just for us. After lunch your guide will take you for a short stroll around the village explaining the history and including a visit to the abbey.Canal Picnic

Now it’s time to head off to our second winery of the day. This time it is to a small domaine owned and ran by the winemaker who will proudly show us his winery and talk to us about the history of domaine which has been in his family for many generations. We will taste his range of excellent wines of all colours before heading off to our final visit of the day to an olive mill. Here we will learn how olives are grown and harvested and made into delicious Languedoc olive oils.
