€5 per person gets you a fantastic tour and tasting experience at this small wine producer in Limoux. They are one of the few producers left that make the famous sparking wine using the traditional methods, choosing to do everything by hand rather than use machinery. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, and even though we were on a French tour she took time to explain each key point to us in English. The tour ended with a tasting session of some of their wines, and they were truly amazing. The sparkling wine made in this area actually predates champagne, and it’s said that Dom Perignon stole the production methods when he toured the area and took them back to the champagne region.
Very interesting guide,Didier James, who speaks excellent English. The wine tasting at the end of the tour was lovely and all the wines are excellent! Well worth the 6 euro fee!
