Vin en Vacances is a vineyard tour company run 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.

A wonderful and enlightening day out. The combination of an erudite and charismatic tour leader with carefully and considerately selected vineyards to visit made this a truly special day. We learned so much about the whole process of winemaking, the complexities of the industry, but always in a fun and approachable way. The tastings were first class and the lunch... More

Can't recommend this tour highly enough. We went to the Corbiere region which involved a visit to two vineyards, a three course lunch and a walk tour of the stunning village Lagrasse. Our guide for the day was Marcel who as well as being very knowledgable has a clear passion for the region & its wines. Anyone planning a trip... More

We first toured with Vin en Vacances owner Wendy in 2013. Enjoyed it so much that we returned this year for 3 days of guided wine and food touring in the Languedoc area of France. We met the full staff of Wendy, Marcel, Kate, Carlos, and Petra. Each tour day is carefully planned beginning with the pickup at your hotel... More

We went on the Corbiers excursion - picked up at 09.00 and finished at about 18.00. A very full day which consisted of a visit to two wine producers - one being a fully fledged estate with all the bells and whistles - the other being a father/son operation run from a nondescript building . We were also given a... More
