This wine tour to the Corbières region will take you to a magical place of contrasts where cicadas sing, and buzzards circle lazily against a blue sky, over wild, windswept garrigue. The vineyards are perched on rocky hillsides and the roads wind round and round as we make our way towards our first vineyard visit which is a family owned domaine in the village of Monseret.
The vineyards are situated in the heart of the Boutenac region, an area dedicated to the culture of the vine since Roman times and the only cru in the Corbières. We will take a walk through the vines, some of them more than a century old. We will also take a tour of the winery which is also ancient but modernised to use the latest techniques to produce fabulous Corbières wines. The award winning reds are made from a blend of Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah and the whites from Marsanne and Rousanne.
After an extensive tasting of Corbières and Corbières-Boutenac wines we will head for the beautiful village of Lagrasse to enjoy a delicious lunch accompanied by wine from the Corbières.
After lunch you will take a fascinating stroll around Lagrasse one of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France and learn some of the history that spans at least 1000 years. Your route will take you along the narrow cobbled ‘ruelles’ and along the way, between the town and the abbey, in squares and behind facades, there are stories to be told and a fascinating medieval history to be revealed. You will have the chance to take a browse through some of the small boutiques and also visit the vinegar maker and taste his wares.
Now its time to head off to our final visit of the day in a nearby village where we will meet father and son wine makers producing top quality Corbières wines from a small winery in the heart of their village.
