Vin en Vacances is a vineyard tour company ran 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.

My parents, husband and I took a half day wine tour with Kate in June 2015. She was excellent, very knowledgeable about the area, the different wines and production methods. We had the tour to ourselves which was excellent and Kate was able to tailor the day brilliantly taking us to a one-man-band business and a larger vineyard for comparison.... More

Vin en Vacances always plans a fantastic tour for us. This was my 5th trip/tour with them and I can't imagine a better wine holiday. Wendy picked us up from the train station and every detail of our days were taken care of. We spent 4 lovely days tasting wine, touring wineries and even visited a olive oil factory for... More

We decided to do a four hour half day tour as we hadn't a lot of time to spare. Kate was very knowledgeable and we visited two quite different vineyards, which gave us a good comparison. One was owned and run by just one man and the other was a much larger vineyard with wines being bottled in their thousands.... More

I came across Vin En Vacances by chance and immediately thought the Languedoc 3 day tour looked like a great trip. I was not wrong and the trip more than fulfilled any expectations I had from the on-line description. Wendy and her team were excellent hosts, guides, raconteurs and a great source of regional wine knowledge. The 3 days provided... More

Last week I was lucky enough to go on two wine tours with Vin en Vacances which were quite different in character, and most enjoyable to compare the different areas and wines. I cannot speak highly enough of the very professional way in which the tours are handled, but with a nice personal approach by both Kate and Wendy. The... More

Our second tour with vin en vacances having found this gem of the Langeudoc 2 years ago. Fantastic day visiting 3 vineyards in the area and a great lunch at Gruissan at the salt flats. Best day of our holiday so far. Thank you Wendy you are a star. If you're in this area well worth a visit.

Today we visited 2 vineyards in the Corbieres region of southern France. The wines were delightful and the host (Kate) from vin on vacances was very knowledgeable and engaging which added to the overall experience. It was a great day out and we would highly recommend for anyone looking to get closer the real rural France.

We enjoyed a three day tour along with wigtig2002 and sheepish1947 and one other couple. We can not endorse them enough-the tours that is! Nothing is too much trouble for Wendy and her team and you leave having gained considerable knowledge and having had an experience that is second to non. We learnt about the wines, ate magnificent food in... More

We were on the Lagrasse Tour with wigtig2002 (see their review for a comprehensive report). We cannot recommend Vin en Vacances highly enough. This was our second tour and certainly will not be our last. Wendy's enthusiasm is infectious and her knowledge is prodigious. Carlos brought his extensive language skills and local knowledge of restaurants and vineyards to enhance the... More
