Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

What a wonderful three days we had this summer with Wendy, Marcel and Kate, seeing the countryside and sampling the wines of Languedoc and Roussillon by minibus. Highly professional but good fun, visiting a range of producers, large and small, modern and traditional. Three superb and very different lunch experiences (including a wonderful picnic). Suitable for wine lovers, both knowledgeable and not so knowledgeable, or even for those just wanting to be exposed to the wine traditions and ambitions of the area. I couldn't fault it. Superb!

We had never been to the Languedoc region before so the day trip incorporating Minerve & the Minervois was a great introduction to the region. Wendy was great sharing her knowledge about the wines grown in the region and what we could expect on the tour. Lunch was spent at a lovey cosy restaurant which we loved. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who has hasn't been to the region and for those who have as it was a great day trip from Carcassonne.

Enjoyed a fantastic tour to Corbierres and Lagrasse with Wendy on 4/8/14 and a tour to Domains Gayda with Wendy and Marcel on 8/8/14l. I have now been on four tours with Vin en Vacances and enjoyed every moment of all of them. They are a great way of seeing the Languedoc Roussiillon area of France, learn about wines, enjoy the passion and wine the artisan winemakers produce in the company of like minded people under the guidance of knowledgeable personable people. I can't wait for my next tour, thanks for a great time!

after 6 years trying to "do" the vinyards of the Languedoc with little or no French & always being the driver! I was delighted to happen upon Vin en Vacances and the lovely Wendy.For me and my 4 friends the day tour Coastal Vineyards & Abbey de Valmagne was a BIG HIT. Wendy makes a day out easy in this fast paced world as we communicated before the day by e-mails arranging pick etc . Wendy's commentary and sharing of knowledge en route was just right. Wendy & Kate bring a great sense of fun to quite a serious subject and important industry to The Languedoc. Domaine Hillaire was superb. Their passion was so obvious and the lunch provided in the shade of their garden magical. The Abbey De Valmagne was stunning with fabulous views. All round the day went too fast but was educational, exciting, relaxing and fun. We will be back for more! Thanks Wendy & Kate. We're now enjoying our wine that shipped successfully to Ireland.

We went on the Domain Gayda trip and it was fantastic. We had a fun and interesting time, with delicious wines and lunch in the most spectacular setting. It was a day out we're so pleased we had and it was a true highlight of our holiday.
