Wine Country

 

Languedoc-Roussillon in the south of France stretches from the Rhône valley in the east to the Spanish border in the southwest.

It is dominated by 300,000 hectares of vineyards, making it France’s largest wine-producing region.

We are very fortunate to live within very easy access to some of the regions most famous winemaking towns.

Limoux, famous for its Blanquette and Cremant is a half an hour drive away to the north. Wine historians believe that the world’s first sparkling wine was produced in this region in 1531.

Maury is only a half-hour drive to the south and is home to some amazing producers of local wine.

Rivesaltes, famous for its Muscat is nearer to the coast and around an hours drive.

There are a wealth of places along the main roads to stop and visit, with many places offering Tasting sessions (Degustation).
