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.

We went on a wine tour with Wendy and Marcel last year and we had a great day so when some friends decided to come and visit we booked another tour.
Wendy needs a wheelchair, we were warned that there would be a little walking around one of the vineyards which we not be able to manage. This did not spoil our day as we were prepared.
We tasted some great wines, met some wonderful people from different parts of the world and enjoyed a nice meal which was included in the tour.
Marcel was a great help getting Wendy in and out of the mini bus as he was last year. I have a suggestion that would be of help to most people taking the tour, the mini bus needs to carry a folding metal caravan type step. This would help everyone as the bus floor is high and a number of people had difficulty in getting in and out.
We had a fantastic day, so much so we will be back next year.

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!
