Vin en Vacances is a vineyard tour company run by Wendy Gedney, an English woman with a passion for this wonderful area and its wines. Wendy is a wine teacher and during the tours not only will you have a thoroughly enjoyable day, you will also learn a great deal about wine and tasting. Her aim is to provide you with an experience that you can’t easily create for yourself and during the day you will explore the regions, meet some of the most interesting vignerons, taste their wines and enjoy a superb lunch. Wendy's tours always include other fabulous things such as a visit to a goat farm, a pretty village or olive oil tasting.

Wendy was superb to work with to arrange a customized shore tour from our cruise stop at Sete. In one fantastic day our guide, Marcel, whisked us from the ship to Carcassone for a visit to La Cite' (early enough in the day to avoid the crowds), then on to the village of Lagrasse for a fine lunch, an afternoon...

This was a really well organised holiday, based in Carcassonne. Wendy and her team were extremely knowledgeable and well organised. Our hotel was small, comfortable and welcoming. The highlights of our tour were access to small and varied wine producers, eating traditional french food in lovely rural settings and walking in the surrounding countryside. I would thoroughly recommend this holiday.

The Languedoc is a beautiful place to visit, and an educational experience with fine wines, the best of olive oil, beautiful villages, and friendly people. The way to experience all of the best the region offers is to plan and make the visit with Wendy. Wendy is a superb guide. She is extremely knowledgeable about the wines, culture, and history...

An excellent tour! Carlos our tour host was exceptional and his knowledge of the wines and the local areas was second to none. This tour has the personal touch and with a home cooked regional lunch,all of which was locally sourced - is great value for money. A fantastic and interesting day in the Languedoc - don't miss out.....

Both different routes and our Guide Marcos on three occasions was fantastic, his history knowledge excellent. There were 5 of us and only one drinker but they accommodated us dong different activities even though we were in the wine region. A... More

Had a great day with Kate around the Minerve area sampling wine & olive oil with lunch in between. Learned a lot, drank a lot and really enjoyed the day. Kate is clearly passionate about her wine & food so made it a pleasure to be with her. Don't think I've ever drunk wine at 9.45 am before!

We (4 American women) joined 4 Swedish women for a day of adventure. We started by going to a wonderful outdoor food market where our guide Kate explained all things and we got to sample lots of different flavors of cheeses and meats, and honeys. Then it was off to a great little winery and an olive oil processing place...of... More

We all enjoyed a very memorable, entertaining and enjoyable day with a delicious lunch at Domain Gayda. Knowledgeable guide in Marcel and nothing was too much trouble - he was an brilliant tour leader. We all learned a lot and certainly plan another holiday in the area with tour too.

My daughters and I booked a wine tasting trip recently during our stay in Beziers. Marcel picked us up promptly at 9.30 and we spent the day visiting the surrounding area to include a market, two winerys, and had a typical French lunch. Marcel was very informative and we thoroughly enjoyed our day, learning a great deal about how wine... More
