This is the area of Corbières where it merges with that of Fitou to produce rich flavourful wines under the hot southern sun. Situated inland of the Mediterranean between Narbonne and Perpignan, the surroundings are delightful, being amongst rolling hills and vineyards – yet away from the bustle and traffic of the coastal strip.
Here the winemakers (Severine et Gilles Contrepois) offer a variety of accommodation including a vine-harvester’s house dating from the beginning of the 20th century which has been totally renovated to become a very comfortable holiday home. With 3 double en-suite bedrooms and another bedroom which can sleep 6, capacity for 12 should not be a problem There is a swimming pool and solar-powered energy for electricity and hot water. Or, stay B&B in the Winemaker’s House which has 4 guest rooms and includes a wine-tasting room!!
The Cathar castles of Aguilar, Quéribus, Peyrepertuse are all nearby whilst the magical medieval walled city of Carcassonne is only 60km away.
The wines produced here include both Fitou(red) and Corbières(white and rosé) plus the sweet Muscat de Rivesaltes. These are quality wines which have been well-received in the wine press. The vineyard owners also offer a 4×4 tour of the vineyards which should be fun in such rugged terrain! More about Languedoc wines.
