We visited Joe and Liz at the end of January and selected the “Wine & Dine” experience after reading the great reviews on here. A 15 minute taxi ride from Carcassonne (about €20) gets you to the vineyard. We were a bit worried that we might be the only visitors eating with the hosts at this quiet time of year, but these feelings were soon discarded as although we were the only visitors, Joe and Liz are wonderful hosts. We were made to feel at home in their beautiful dining room overlooking the vineyards with a glass of wine and a warm fire before setting outside to view the vineyard and the wine-making facilities. After a really interesting tour where we learnt all about the vineyard and the wine-making process from Joe as well as tasting his excellent wines in various states of readiness, we went back inside. Liz’s food was exceptional. We are both vegetarians and Liz rustled us up 4 courses of amazing home-cooked veggie food while Joe kept our glasses full allowing us to try many of his renowned wines. Joe and Liz are so enthusiastic about their respective roles at the vineyard it is hard not to be engrossed listening and talking to them. We are certainly looking forward to visiting again at a warmer time of year when we will be able to see the vineyard in it’s full glory; and to enjoy the wines we have since sent for. This was the highlight of our weekend in Carcassonne.
