  • Languedoc: Tour and Tasting at Domaine de Baronarques

    1. Languedoc: Tour and Tasting at Domaine de Baronarques

    Dive into centuries of winemaking tradition with a tour of the Domaine de Baronaques. Acquired by the Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and her 2 sons in 1998, the vineyard has been in existence since the 17th century, when it was under the possession of the Abbey de Saint-Polycarpe. Across over 270 acres of lush vineyards, experience the raw materials that coalesce to form a wine celebrated across the globe. After arrival at the vineyard, you'll tour the vast vineyard lands, the vat-house and barrel-room where wines are fermented and aged, as well as the 19th-century French Château, nestled into a tree-covered hill. After a full tour of the premises, you'll have the opportunity to taste the 3 wines produced at the Domaine de Baronaques: Grand Vin Rouge, La Capitelle de Baronarques and Grand Vin Blanc.

What people are saying about Carcassonne

The activity consists of a tour of the vineyards and the winery, where we learn a little about its history. Then, we tasted 3 wines: a white and two reds. When booking the language options were French or English, but when we arrived at the winery one of the hostesses spoke in Spanish, so we could choose that language :) The place is incredible and the attention is excellent. It lasted approx. 40 'and we pay € 10 per person. It was a wonderful experience. We highly recommend !!

Great tour of the walled city of Carcassonne!
