We visited with 11 members of a wine tasting group and we were treated to a very interesting and informative tour of the vineyard and winery by Joe which included tasting a variety of the wines produced. After the tour we were treated to a wonderful lunch cooked by Liz accompanied by a superb selection of wines. Joe and Liz joined us at the table for dessert which was a very nice touch. They are both very interesting and very welcoming as hosts. If you like dogs you'll like their dog Muse. We came away with a bottle of OMG which we look forward to sampling in due course. The vineyard is not easy to find but the vistas are beautiful and it is well worth a visit.

I booked this wine tour for my sister's Hen Party and I cannot recommend it enough. We arrived to a beautiful welcome, followed by a brilliant tour of the vine yard and the winery. It was very informative and Joe was excellent with the group of women asking lots of questions... and drinking quicker than he could fill the glasses! After sitting outside with a glass of wine, we went in for lunch and the food was incredible. the wine was free flowing and the dining experience was relaxed. Joe and Liz joined us for drinks and we couldn't have had a better time. the only disappointment was having to leave the few bottles of wine we purchased because we couldn't carry them in hand luggage. I cannot express how highly i recommend the tour. If you are looking for info on wine, to drink lots of wine, to see the workings of a small business, taste amazing food and drink more wine... then i throughly recommend you book this tour. Plus you can stay there too so no excuse for having to drive!

Apart from some difficulty in getting there- even our GPS was stunned- this was a remarkable evening throughout! Not quite sure what we were letting ourselves in for on our last night in Carcassonne and worried on arriving late (that GPS again), within minutes Joe, Liz,and Muse made us feel completely at home as their house guests. The personalized winery tour and tasting were impressive showing how good old fashioned hard work, Google expert advice, lots of commonsense, and an innate business acumen can lead to very positive results even in the closed community of French wine making.The meal that followed was a triumph of quality ingredients and an innovative supercook,, Liz, aided and abetted by Joe with his selection of choice wines for each course. . We had a lovely time and can unreservedly recommend to our friends.

We visited early March and were pleasantly surprised by a warm welcome by Joe and Liz. After a tour and tasting we had a great I-don't-know-how-many-courses meal accompanied by their own wines. Great atmosphere and pleasant company made this the perfect wine-and-dine experience. Thank you Joe and Liz for your hospitality and a great evening!

Joe and Liz are taking the American dream…… to France! When you spend an afternoon with Joe and Liz, you see what hard work, genuine curiosity, and a trusting partnership can get you. A great experience if you get the chance. They are interesting people who will entertain you with their wit, hospitality, and most importantly, great food and wine!
