Canal du Midi Wine Tour
23 January @ 09:15 - 17:30
An event every week that begins at 09:15 on Saturday, repeating indefinitely
This varied tour begins with a visit to a 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 big freeze in the spring of 1956 when many of the trees died so it is a delight to see this very traditional produce returning to the region.
From the olive mill 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.
Lunch is always a very special part of our tours and today you will enjoy a 3-course meal in the Minervois countryside made from fresh and local ingredients.
Now it’s time to take the pretty drive through the Occitanie countryside to visit one of the finest wine producers of Minervois wines 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.
The Canal du Midi full day Wine tour is available on Saturdays. Price €155 per person
