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.

We did the three day Spirit of Languedoc tour and it was a magical and enlightening experience from beginning to end. Wendy is a true expert and shares her knowledge in such a fun and informative way, that you don't even realise how much you are taking in...that's the information, and of course, the delicious wines. She and her team... More

Great day out with a knowledgeable guide tasting some great wines! Kate picked us up at 9am and we headed straight for a tour of a local Olivier to see how the oil is made and also to taste some different olives and different oils - very interesting! From here we headed down to the canal du midi for our... More

We were picked up by Marcel first of a group of 7. While deiving Marcel explained a lot about wine and the region. We visited 2 wineries, a market and had a nice lunch. I really loved the day as not only we tasted great wines, but were also exposed to people that by choice make organic and biodynamic wines.... More

Have just been on a wine tasting day on Tuesday 4th August with Wendy. It was a superb day with lots of great information, wines, good company. We also had a brilliant lunch at The Domaine St Hilaire after an entertaining and informative wine tasting with Daniel. To visit two completely different winemakers was excellent planning on Wendy's part. Wendy's... More

I chose to go to Carcassonne in order to see the Cathar Castles and Cathar countryside. I am so happy I chose Vin en Vacances for our tour guide. It was over 100F outside and the van was very comfortable inside. We got a lot of great description of the countryside and the two castles, a DELICIOUS lunch, and a... More

We had a fantastic day with Wendy and Alphonse visiting Mas Gabriel and Domaine Roquemal. As someone with little knowledge about wine, i learnt so much and the two wineries Wendy picked contrasted really well. We had a delicious lunch at the Abbaye with more wine and Wendy's knowledge of the area as well as wines in general made for... More

Wendy is a very professional and informative tour guide. She takes an interest in her tour group, provides loads of information and is very generous with what is provided in return for the tour fee. Everything ran smoothly and we learnt a lot about both wine and the Cathar castles. This tour was the best we have ever been on... More

Marcel took us on a very hot day on the Cathar Castles and wine tour. We enjoyed the scenic drive and visiting Queribus and Peyrepertuse castles. Marcel gave us lots of information as we travelled and the atmosphere was very positive. It was little things like the bottles of cold water in the mini bus that were appreciated. Lunch was... More

We visit Domaine Gayda and Limoux in June. We had great time with our guide Kate. We tasted some great wines and we had some delicious food as well. Visit to St Hilaire Abbey and tasting some of the Limoux sparkling wines was great end to our day. We had fantastic time!
