Wendy gave such a great and unique wine tour that my boyfriend and I enjoyed very much! We were staying in Carcassonne for 3 days and our primary goal was to go on a wine tour in the area. We both felt that Wendy gave a very personal, educational, and memorable experience.
We were staying at Hotel de la Cite in Carcassonne, and Wendy picked us up in the morning right at the gate. While driving to each stop, Wendy told us all about her experience with wine and the Languedoc region of France. All of the scenery along the way was gorgeous!
We had a few tastings, then went to a very charming little restaurant for lunch. Wendy even arranged for me to have a vegetarian meal (not always easy in France!) which was fantastic. My boyfriend had the traditional local dish of Cassoulet, which he is still talking about.
After a few more wine tastings, we stopped in the tiny Medieval town of Minerve and had a short walk through their winding town and bridges. The views were breathtaking! We also stopped at a local farmers market where I bought the best strawberries I've ever eaten.
Wendy gave us great advice on wine pairings and even recommended a wonderful wine store near our hotel (we went the next day!). Another thing I loved about Wendy's tour was the diversity. As I explained above, we made a few other stops in addition to the wineries, which both my boyfriend and I appreciated; it really added to the specialness of the day.
Everyone we met on the tour was extremely friendly and we had a wonderful time. I knew next to nothing about wine before the tour, and I learned so much! We would definitely do another one of Wendy's tours if we're in the area again.
Wendy - thanks again for such a memorable day!
