Our visit to O'Vineyards was enjoyable and quite interesting. Ryan explained in detail the making of their great wines( which we all tasted ) and lunch was excellent.
Thank you.

My husband I were totally spoilt on our visit in January. We started with a fabulous tour and tasting with Ryan and then on to the best luncheon prepared by the lovely Liz. Joe, Liz and Ryan were the best hosts and the day with them was the absolute highlight of our trip. The wine was some of the greatest we have tasted and it is a source of constant disappointment that we cannot buy it in Australia! We hope to return one day!

For our Bachelor Party we were looking for ideas that could combine interesting and valuable activities together with traditional for such event drinking :).
By chance we found O'Vineyards and it was the best choice! I would suggest all of you to come and visit!
Nice place and warm welcome of Liz & Joe O'Connell helped our party to have a promising start. A bottle of “Trah-Lah-Lah” perfectly fitted with the image of bridegroom, who was dressed as a girl:). Then we had a great visit over the vineyard with impressive demonstration of wine production from the beginning to the end. We have seen how much love together with the professional approach this family gives to make their wine taste so good.
We had a great time, lots of wine testing, delicious snacks, made by Liz and very warm and friendly atmosphere all over the tour.
Taking the opportunity of this comment I would like to thanks Liz & Joe O'Connell from all “Bachelor party Team” once again!

My friend Terry and I visited O'Vineyards in April this year (2012) and we still talk about it on a regular basis as being one of the best memories of our trip to France. The only complaint we have is that because we live in Australia WE'RE TOO FAR AWAY to come on a regular basis! Joe gave us an interesting and informative tour of the vineyard and then we had an amazing lunch prepared by Liz. I dream about the pear and roquefort parcels we had! Joe and Liz were generous to a fault with their wines (great names), food and sharing their home. I would certainly recommend a visit to O'Vineyards for an experience you won't forget in a hurry.

On a cold wet week in Carcassone (april 2012) we were looking on Tripadvisor for something to do and found Domaine O'Vineyards were the number 1 attraction in the area.
We decided to go for the winery visit with hors d’oeuvres at 25 euros each. We booked online and paid by Paypal ..simples!
The following day we headed off to the vineyard, glad I programmed the sat nav or it might not have been an easy find.
We were met on arrival by Joe and Liz who immediately invited us into their home and treated us like old friends.
We were pleasantly surprised to find we were the only one's on the visit.
As we left the house Joe handed us a wine glass, and I regretted bringing the car.
During a very informative and interesting tour of the winery (with numerous tastings) we met Ryan who had just got off a trans Atlantic flight but was still very friendly and amusing.
When the tour finished we headed back indoors and after tasting various delicious wines Liz prepared some beautiful hor's d'oeuvres. We chatted for ages before being shown round their fabulous house and told us about their B&B venture.
We then bought some of their great wine before departing.

Overall a great experience, really friendly people, no wine snobbery....no slurping or spitting required, delicious food and beautiful wine, (have bought several cases online since our visit).

Would really like to return one day and stay at their B&B (no driving required)
