“My boyfriend and I visited O’Vineyards on a recent trip to Carcassonne. It was about 20 euros and 15 minutes from the Cite in a taxi. I’d booked months in advance mainly for the wine tasting, but the food soon became a huge part of our day. The vineyard is owned by a lovely husband and wife couple. Joe does the wine and Liz does the food.
We completed our wine tour around the vineyard and distillery with Joe. We tasted about 6 wines. Joe pitched it just right. It was informative, educational and fun!
We then went inside and were all seated together for lunch around their big dining table. It was a very different experience to sitting as a couple in a restaurant, but the informal and friendly nature made it truly unique. Joe and Liz ate with us, telling funny stories and providing great entertainment. There was plenty of wine flowing.
Liz served us with what was one of the most fantastic dinners I’ve had in someone’s home. It was plentiful, tasty, fresh and creative. We had aperitifs, salad, soup, two choices of Asian inspired main courses, cheese, dessert, followed by coffee and more wine.
I can’t highly recommend this experience enough if you love great wine, fabulous food and nice hosts!”
