Owner description: Vins & Vinos is a boutique wine shop situated in the heart of the Bastide of Carcassonne. We are a family of wine enthusiasts and experts wishing to give people an opportunity to taste the wine of the Languedoc and Roussion as well as to learn about what makes this region so special and unique in terms of viticulture. We provide free wine tastings of over 60 wines ranging from 5€ to 160€ and offer a selection 200 bottles from which to buy directly. We are ideally located, being only 5 min walk from the train station and canal port, 10 min walk from the Cite and just round the corner from the Office de Tourisme and Place Carnot. We are open 5 days a week (Excl. Mon. and Sun.) from 1:30pm to 7pm and 10am to 3pm on Saturdays and invite all to come and learn something about the region with it's passion for wine. For those who enjoy are wines and want more of them, see our new online shop with the entire selection available for the same prices as the shop. All from the convenience of your own home.

On our last day in Carcassonne we wanted to take home some local wine. We came across Vins & Vinos walked in and to our delight ( as our French is not good ) discovered the young lady in the shop was English. Not only that but she was able to expertly guide us through the wines of the region. An extensive range of wines are available and all can be tasted. After a happy half hour of tasting we came away delighted with our purchases.
