Tout au long du mois de septembre et d'octobre, les vignerons vous ouvrent leur porte pour un moment inoubliable.

Grès de Montpellier - La Clape - Saint Chinian - Costières de Nîmes - Faugères - Pic Saint Loup - Terrasses du Larzac - Minervois - Cévennes
Un planning chargé pour découvrir d'une autre façon le vignoble.
Spring has arrived.
Take some time out and head for the South.
A big breath of fresh air !
It's time to wake up for the vine !
The winegrowers work to plow their vines. Il it can be done with atractor, some have decided to make traditions last by plowing their on horseback.
It is certainly a very hard work, slower and more physical for the winegrower, the duo formed with the animal allows not to crush the soil.
Come and take some time with these winegrowers and their horses during a stay in Cevennes.
Come to discover the best of Cevennes's winegrowers
The northern territory of Languedoc, the gifted winegrowers of the Cévennes create high-quality wines that have nothing to envy their better-known neighbors of the Côtes du Rhône or Pic Saint Loup. Be the first to discover the hidden treasures of the Cévennes before everyone rushes on them.

Why not a stay in the vineyards around Narbonne

ALL THE WINES YOU ENJOY HERE FOLLOW YOU HOME
