Limoux & the Malepère Vineyard Tour

If you like all styles of wines you will love this tour

We start the tour with a visit to the little know appellation of Malepère and to one of the  leading wine producers in the area where you will enjoy a private tour of the winery followed by an extensive tasting of red, rosé and white wines. During the visit you will learn about wine production in the Languedoc and visit the barrel room to discover how maturing wine in barrel is not just about oak flavour.

Lunch is a 3 course meal made from local and seasonal produce accompanied by delicious wines of the region and will take place at one of the family owned restaurants in the pretty town of Limoux. Afterwards you will have the time for a short stroll around the town before we head off to our next visit.

The afternoon will focus on the sparkling wines made in the Limoux area. We will visit a top class producer and here we will learn how sparkling wines are made using the traditional method, just like Champagne. However unlike the Champagne area this region makes 3 styles of sparkling wines; Blanquette du Limoux, Crémant du Limoux and Blanquette Ancestral, a delicious sweet sparkling wine, very unusual and very palatable!

Our final visit of the day is to the Abbey of St Hilaire where the first sparkling wine in the world was created by the monks in 1531. This is a beautiful abbey and we will spend a little time visiting the historical wine cellar and the other historical buildings, visiting the church and enjoying a peaceful moment in the beautiful cloister with its beautiful fountain.
