Mon cher Pierre,

Thank you for your amazing and witty review... :))

It was beyond amazing to have met y’all, and shared our little slice of paradise. We only wish we could have spent more time together over a few bottle chilled O’Chasan while watching the sun set over the vines...

Until we meet again, here a toast of “SANTÉ” !!!

From the food, to the hospitality, to the breathtaking views, to the wine, this vineyard is everything you would want! Booking was easy, and the price exceptional. The rooms were lovely with spectacular views. I can’t recommend it enough. Forget Paris! The south of France is beautiful and the location makes it easy to explore Spain and Andorra. We’re already thinking ahead to our next trip.

Hello Sandy, Brendan, and Logan!

It was such a pleasure to finally welcome you to the vineyard and your #TourDeFrance experience... After all these months of email exchanges and preplanning, it felt like we were meeting up with old friends...

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. It sure was fun spending the day roadside, grilling and drinking our chilled white wine like a bunch of trust fund babies... :)))

Making it on the worldwide broadcast of the Tour was just the cherry on top...

We can’t wait to see you for a return visit whenever the Tour makes it back to #Carcassonne, or for #BastilleDay which has one of France’s best fireworks displays...

Don’t forget to visit the 2 places on l’île Saint-Louis we recommended during your Paris stay!

Until next time, “Santé!”

Having stayed at the Domaine de Cure (separate review) for two weeks, our departure coincided with Bastille Day (14th July). We had booked into O’Vineyards for dinner, bed & breakfast, and what a treat it turned out to be. We were welcomed by Darren, and shown to our room, superbly appointed and with views over the old mediǣval city (La Cité). We met our hosts, and were treated to early wine-tasting and pleasant conversation – Joe and Liz are unsparing in their time and attention. We were also taken on a walk around the vineyard by Muse, their very lovable dog. Once further guests arrived, we proceeded on a vineyard tour, learning the varieties which are cultivated there, pruning methods employed, then on to a tour of the processing and storage plant, with appropriate tastings along the way. Joe is a mine of information on viniculture and my wife and I learned more in an hour than we could from a pile of books. Dinner, for approximately 20 people, prepared by Liz and Gilbert (her son), was superb and accompanied by a selection of home-produced wines. The climax of our visit was a ringside seat for the spectacular fireworks display over La Cité. Breakfast on the terrace the following day, and a leisurely departure, cemented a very memorable trip.

Aren’t the Fireworks over La Cité superb from our decks?! We love to host parties on July 14th for Bastille Day and the fireworks show! Be sure to tell all of your friends to come for either a stay and/or a meal and the fireworks show!

Came here for a wine tour and appetisers to follow. We came as a family with grown up kids. Really interesting, informative and great stories. Wine excellent and plenty of it (we're shipping some home). Definitely recommend. Hope to come back and stay next year for Bastille. Thank you!

Ahh you shipped some of Joe’s wine home!? Excellent way to prolong the visit! The 14th of July fireworks are indeed spectacular as viewed from our deck! Do come back!

We were pleased to take the option for a winery tour followed by lunch. Joe provided ample time to show us the vineyard, followed by wine tasting in the wine cellar. He described all facets of his wine production from grape harvesting to wine bottling. We found the wines very much to our liking.

We then enjoyed a delightful lunch on the terrace prepared by Joe's wife Liz. Two other couples joined us for lunch which made for good conversation and joviality.

We spent a week in Carcassonne and our visit to O'Vineyards was the highlight of our stay. Joe and Liz are wonderful hosts and we thank them sincerely for a memorable time.
