O’Vineyards, Cabardès – B&B

What a combination – a welcoming B&B with great views towards the magical medieval city of Carcassonne (11 Aude, Occitanie), and which comes with its own vineyard and wines!

O Vineyards

Joe and Liz O’Connell founded O’Vineyards with their son Ryan in 2004 when they settled down in the northern suburbs of Carcassonne, intent on crafting the perfect wines for those big, long lunches . In so doing, they constantly strive to blend the best techniques and attitudes (and drinking habits) of the new world with the refinement, wisdom and character of the old world.

As well as crafting their own wines from their vineyard, O’Vineyards offers wine and dine experiences (vineyard tours and wine tastings accompanied by delicious lunches and dinners) and beautiful boutique B&B rooms

Here the wine is classified as Cabardès AOC, and the local country wine classification IGP Cité de Carcassonne.
The production is of red and rosé wines from this most westerly part of the Languedoc. The appellation is the only AOC in France that allows the blending of grape varieties typically found in Mediterranean climates like Syrah and Grenache with those found in Bordeaux like Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cabardès is an Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) for red and rosé wine in Languedoc-Roussillon wine region in France. Cabardès was named after the Lords of Cabaret who defended the Châteaux de Lastours against Simon de Montfort in 1209. Despite the name’s medieval origins, this appellation is one of the youngest in France, having only become official in February 1999. Most of the wine produced in the Cabardès is red, but rosé can also be produced under the AOC designation. The region is positioned on the cusp between the distinct climates of the Languedoc-Roussillon and the southwest of France. The appellation is the only AOC in France that permits the blending of grape varieties typically found in Mediterranean climates like Syrah and Grenache with varieties typically found in Atlantic climates like Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.Winemakers are required to grow 50% Atlantic varieties and 50% Mediterranean varieties, and must also blend them – the new requirements from 2011 rule that the proportions of both Atlantic or Mediterranean varieties must be 40% or higher. This varietal composition reflects the distinctive soil qualities and dominant winds of the area.  www.aop-cabardes.fr/ (in French)
