We will learn how the olives are grown and harvested and made into oil. This is followed by a tasting of oils and olives including the Rolls Royce of all Olives the Lucques variety.

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 with you a delicious tasting of Languedoc wines and tell you the story of the Canal.

This is a tour for oyster lovers as next we take a drive through the city of Narbonne to reach the village of Gruissan oystersand our favourite oyster and fish restaurant with views out over the salt pans. Here we will enjoy a 3 course seafood lunch and you can take your pick from the menu and enjoy your oysters cooked or fresh. Whichever you choose you will enjoy the relaxed mood of this oyster bar and marvel at the colour of the sea water in the salt pans ranging from pink to purple.

Our final visit of the day is to one of the finest wineries in the La Clape appellation which is renowned for it top quality red and white wines. The white wines include an ancient grape called Bourboulenc which nearly disappeared but here has been nurtured and protected. The wines made from this grape variety are blended with other white varietals to produce some of the finest white wines in the South of France. The red wines are highly acclaimed also and often carry a herby character including rosemary – the rose of the sea.
