Coronavirus Impact

The wellbeing of our guests is our top priority. We are sorry but due to the current circumstances we are temporarily closed.

Our hearts and thoughts go out to the people who have been affected by this unprecedented event.

Thanks to the healthcare workers, local communities, and governments around the world who are on the front lines working to contain this coronavirus. 

Like all business depending on tourism, we are feeling the impact of this coronavirus event as we remain shuttered through April 25, 2020.

Although we cannot welcome you at the winery for now, we are still able to ship our wine around the world. Please feel free to visit our wine page to support – help your independent winemaking and raise money to fight the coronavirus.

Thank you and looking forward to seeing you at the vineyard very soon!

Today we emptied about 90,000 bottles worth of wine from our French oak barrels. Each barrel is tasted for quality control prior to going into the blend . From time to time some of the barrels don’t make the cut . This control is very time consuming and difficult but somebody has to do it !!!

This older video below will give you more details of the whole process. Cheers!

This brief video was done just to prove I could get inside my tanks!!! Each tank is cleaned several times a year with food friendly acid based products, a pressure washer and good old elbow grease. The finished product even meets the standards of my maniac wife Madame Propre aka Mrs Clean!


Thanks Pierre and Lynsey for visiting us! and Thank you for this original review on TripAdvisor!

beautiful, lovely, elegant, graceful, magnificent, superb, superlative, excellent, wonderful, perfect, tasteful, stylish, refined, distinguished, decorous, aesthetic, lovely, sumptuous, exquisite, welcoming, friendly, convivial, warm-hearted… with “super” and “extra” before each word, and that will describe the beginning of a hint of my recent experience at O’Vineyards.

Words from Polly Curtis organiser of Steph’s  Hen Do Event.

Before the Event:”Our weekend in Toulouse and visit to you is finally here! We are very excited…

Cannot wait to finally meet you all, you’ve been by far the easiest people to deal with and so helpful! So thank you in advance for all of that! See you Sunday! “

After the Event: “We are back to reality in the UK, and wanted to send you an email to say thank you so very much for everything you did this weekend.

I couldn’t have asked for our day to have been better. Everyone said how incredibly welcome you made us all feel, as shown by how relaxed everyone was all afternoon!

The wine was lovey and plentiful!! We enjoyed a few more bottles in the park that evening, with a few saved for the top table at the wedding!

Your food was delicious and the efforts you went to for all our varying requirements was above and beyond!

I’ve attached a few photos, and if you wanted us to write a review of any sort to go with it for anything don’t hesitate to ask!!

Enjoy the rest of your summer, it would be hard not to in such a beautiful place!

Merci Beaucoup!!!”

In this video, our proprietor and chief wine-maker, Joseph O’Connell, describes the process of harvesting grapes to make red wine.  This process is much different than the process for harvesting grapes for making white wine.


Join us soon at O’Vineyards for a tasting, tour, night among the vines in one of our four elegantly furnished B&B rooms, or a gourmet meal!

We were up early at O’Vineyards this Thursday morning to harvest the merlot!



The moonlight over the vines was beautiful at 2AM!



Like an impressionistic painting, the lights from the equipment could be seen shining in the field from a distance.



As always, you can just barely make out the lights of Carcassonne’s medieval city over the O’Vineyards vines.



Soon we will have more delicious wine for you to enjoy!
