It was our first "proper" trip to the Languedoc-Roussillon and my wife suggested we book in at the La Maison du Rire as "something to do which sounds quite fun". I think (update: *thought*) I know my way around a bottle of wine so gladly...More

Emma's description of the area and the wines made there was fascinating and really informative. In particular her ability to relate the wines with food was exceptional. We all enjoyed the wine tasting event she organised and were much more knowledgeable at the afterwards.

Do not hesitate to visit! What Emma doesn't know about wine (and food) isn't worth knowing! She truly is a walking fountain of knowledge when it comes to wine. We booked the private tasting session between four of us at Emma's stunning home and it...More
