This vineyard tour includes a wine tasting cruise on the Canal du Midi. The tour is varied and begins with a visit to an local olive oil producer where we learn how the olives are harvested and pressed to produce delicious oils. Languedoc olive oil was famed until the freeze of 1956 when many of the trees died so it is a delight to see this very traditional produce returning to the region.
From here we take the short drive to the village of Le Somail one the prettiest ports along the Canal du Midi where we join our boat for a 1 hour private cruise and along the way we will entertain you with a delicious tasting of Languedoc wines and tell you the story of the Canal.
A wonderful Canal du Midi wine tour! If you need more convincing, check out our video:
Lunch will take place at a hidden spot that we particularly love and is the perfect place for one of our gourmet outdoor lunches and afterwards we will visit the beautiful village of Minerve and learn about the Cathar siege that took place here in 1210 before heading home. Read about the village in our blog.
We finish our day with a visit to one of the finest wine producers in the Languedoc where we will enjoy a private tour of the winery and learn how the wines are grown and made. This is followed by a delicious tasting of their expressive wines.
