Wine Tastings


Enjoy a fun and relaxed wine tasting. Its a great way to learn about the wines of the Languedoc-Roussillon and taste a wide and diverse range of top class wines from various parts of the region.

In the world of wine, a lot has changed in Languedoc Roussillon over the past 20 years. Gone are the days of ‘cheap and cheerful’, a quality revolution has taken place here ! The wines are still good value but no longer simple. These days most of them are delicious, complex and very well made and during this wine tasting you will discover why this is the most up and coming and diverse wine region in France.

Our tasting room is just 15 minutes north east of Carcassonne set in the traditional winemaking village of Villeneuve-Minervois and surrounded by vineyards through which, before we begin the tasting, we invite you on a optional stroll to learn a little about the indigenous and newcomer grape varieties and how they are grown and cared for. Afterwards you will return to the tasting room to sample 8 carefully selected Languedoc wines selected from different parts of the region. To accompany the wines there will be a delicious grazing platter of cheeses, charcuterie, olives and bread.

Private tastings are available every day of the week at our tasting room located in a Minervois village 15 minutes from Carcassonne.
