“Well worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

My boyfriend and I booked a last minute half day wine tour with Carine and were very glad that we did! We met her at Place de l’Europe at 9am and it ended up being just the two of us on the tour. We drove out towards the Pic St Loup region and visited 2 very different wineries – one more family run with a very small production, and another much larger (about 4 or 5 times larger!). This was a great way to get a feel for the region and the diversity amongst the winemakers. Carine was full of knowledge and kept up very well with my constant stream of questions. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to explore some of the Languedoc region’s wines, whilst also learning more about what makes the area unique and the amount of passion that goes into producing each bottle. We definitely got our money’s worth!

“Pic St Loup Wine Tour - a great half day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

My mother and I had a lovely wine tour with Carine Ageneau on a Sunday. Carine was very informative and had a nice relaxed manner to her so the day ran smoothly and with no awkward conversation! We really enjoyed visiting smaller producers rather than larger scale wineries which meant the producers had more time to spend with us explaining their craft and also for us to taste their wines. We really appreciated being picked up and dropped off at Place d'Europe as we were only relying on public transport during our stay. One point if you are a visitor to the tourist office do follow up on the company wine tours as sometimes the people behind the desk don't know (as a high turnover) It was a great half day and I would recommend it to anyone!

“A grand day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Spent a very interesting & entertaining wine tour with Carine in the Pic St Loup area north of Montpellier. Carine is very knowledgeable about French wines in general but also knows a lot about the wines of Languedoc. Visited 2 different vineyards, one big, one small and tasted a range of excellent wines. We booked at short notice and Carine was very accommodating to work around our schedule. All in all a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Highly recommended.

“Great evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We had a fabulous evening with Carine at the wine tasting night at the beginning of August. She is extremely knowledgeable and we tasted some fantastic wines that evening. The food accompaniments where just incredible (the duck pate was a favourite!) and she even allowed us to take the remaining bottles home with us. I’d highly recommend this for evening for anyone who enjoys or is interested in wine – we came away with a great appreciation for the various wines of Languedoc.

“Een erg leuke en informatieve dag.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

This was a day well spent. We've been tasting wines, we've seen the sights and all that with a very nice group of people.

The stop in the village of Arles, where Vincent van Gogh used to live, was surprisingly interesting. Instead of being just another touristic village it actually has a lot of history and cultural value.

I would definately recommend taking this tour for we've had a lot of fun and learned a lot
Although next time I'll have to take it a bit easier with the wine ;)
