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. « less

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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...

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.

This was a real highlight of our trip to the area and we would recommend the experience to anyone who is interested in learning more about wine. No prior knowledge is required and our guide for the day Marcel was exceptional. Lunch at Domaine Gayda was great and of course so was the wine!

We wanted to find out more behind the scenes into the wine of the Carcassonne region and found Wendy's tour from the local tourist info office. Wendy's passion brings the subject alive. What a fun way to find out about how wine is made, the history, the tasting (15 wines !) and the combination with food. Pricey but worth every... More

I chose this tour because of the excellent reviews, and now I can understand why! We were collected from our village first thing in the morning and driven by our very knowledgeable and friendly guide, Kate, to the Domaine Gayda where we were given a tour of the vineyard. We then tasted 10 different wines before lunch (so Kate taught... More
