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.

An amazing visit to a small natural domain to taste delightful wines and meet the charming owner, she gave us a wonderful insight into she and her husband's philosophy on growing natural vines and making exceptional wines. Fabulous lunch by the side of... More

We contacted Wendy and Kate on a Saturday for a day trip out on the Canal du Midi the following Wednesday for 3 families and kids. Thanks to their professionalism and expertise, they put together the most amazing day for us tasting olive oil, crusing the beautiful Canal de Midi whilst tasting some local wines, followed by a delightful and...

Our tour completely exceeded our expectations in every way! Kate was incredibly knowledgeable in her field but also provided relaxed and fun company for our outing. We knew nothing about wines before her tour, but we know a lot more now. I would thoroughly recommend this tour... That picnic under the trees in the middle of the French countryside is... More

We contacted Vin en Vacances on a Saturday afternoon to try and organise a trip on Monday for our family of 6 after we found ourself unexpectedly in Carcassonne. Immediately they respond to our enquiry and set up a fantastic day out for our family which was very impressive given the short notice. They collected us from our hotel, took... More

Wendy arranged a private tour for us to be more entertaining for children. We had an amazing day with Marcel who took us to an olive tasting, then down the Canal du Midi for a boat trip with wine tasting (grape juice for my niece and nephew so they could join in), then Petra's delicious 'picnic' by the canal (so...

Had a great day with very courteous and professional driver (who was also a sommelier so knew his wines!). The lunch was an amazing full meal, and the wines we tried were great. Would recommend this to anyone!

We have just arrived back home from a wonderful week long trip in Carcassonne, an area of France which we have never visited before, and had the pleasure of spending two of our days with Vin en Vacances. Although we enjoy drinking wine, we are not particularly knowledgeable in the process of wine production but after reading reviews on tripadvisor... More

We found the Languedoc a fascinating and picturesque region and we can understand why Wendy and her team are so passionate about the wines produced here. We took two tours on consecutive days, the first to the Corbière and the second in Minervois. We particularly enjoyed the contrasts, not just between these two areas in Languedoc but also between the... More

As a large group of both adults and teenagers, we booked two different "tailor-made" experiences with Vin en Vacance - both of which were excellent. The first was with just the adults - a "tapas and wine tasting evening" in our house. The food was amazing (much more than just tapas) and the wines, all from the local area, were... More
