Our guide,Wendy, proved to be an expert and specialist adviser on the wines of Languedoc, their qualities, their recent... More

We were a party of 10 and had two guides (Wendy & Marcel) and two vans. We booked this tour on the first day of our holiday and although we all had some knowledge of wines, the quality of the information we received, really set us up for the rest of our holiday. On subsequent days, we went to caves... More

Had an excellent day out with Wendy and Kate near Pezenas. Lunch in the garden at Domaine St Hilaire was a delight. An experience to be recommended.

The wine tour with Wendy was even more than we had imagined it might be! It was wonderful being picked up right outside the city wall in an eight-person van to drive through the most beautiful rural countryside to visit two outstanding vineyards (there were six of us in our party, and we felt like old friends with the other...

A great insight into the business of making wine and growing grapes. Combined with a walk around Minerve and a lovely lunch in a country auberge, we enjoyed the whole day - a super experience and one which I... More

We had an amazing day with Wendy, not only did we meet two small wine producers, taste some of their excellent wines but we had a great lunch, visited some lovely Cathar and circular villages in the Minervois and saw some beautiful countryside as well. All in all a great day, difficult to think of any faults really. Wendy was... More
