4 or 5 nights – September 13 to June 17

This 4 or 5-night, 3 or 4-day Food & Wine holiday is an exploration of all the wonderful things that combine to make the Spirit of Languedoc. You will stay in one of the delightful B&B’s we have chosen in Carcassonne, ideally placed to enjoy the restaurants and bars in this lovely southern city.

Wednesday If you have chosen the 5-night option you will arrive at your B&B today

Thursday If you have chosen the 4-night option you will arrive at your B&B today and for those who have opted for the 5-night holiday, you will spend the day exploring the Malepère & Limoux wine districts. Limoux is famous for its sparkling wines and our visits today include a top-class producer of these wines. In the Malepère we will taste the red and rosé produced under appellation plus excellent varietal wines.

Friday Today will be a leisurely day spent at Vignoble Puy and if you dream of sitting in an olive grove enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the South of France whilst sipping a chilled glass of rosé and tucking into a fabulous alfresco lunch then you will love today’s tour.

Saturday The day begins with a short drive to our tasting room in the Minervois where you will spend the morning learning about the wines of the Languedoc-Roussillon and tasting wines from areas you will not be visiting during this holiday. Lunch will be in one of our favourite restaurants set right next to the Canal du Midi and afterwards you will enjoy a leisurely drive through stunning scenery to reach the village of Lagrasse for a guided tour of the village and a chance to taste artisanal vinegars. The final visit of the day is to a small winery in the Corbières to taste delicious wines from this area.

Sunday Today’s tour combines the history of the Cathars with the fabulous wines of the Roussillon as we head south to spend the day in and around Maury. The village is famous for its sweet red wine and the impressive castles of Quéribus and Peyreperteuse which we will visit today.
