We were visiting the Langeudoc Roussillon wine region of France. We like to find a local wine tour company for our wine tours. In this region we used Vin en Vacances. During the time we were there Wendy (the owner) was conducting a wine tour weekend. We were only able to join for one night and the next day. At the Château les Carrasses there was a wine dinner. We were looking forward to this event. I loved the way in which Wendy conducted the dinner. During each course we had two wines to taste. It allowed you to see how the different wines and styles impacted the food. It was interesting to see how everyone had different opinions about which ones they liked better. Wine tasting is a very personal experience and how the food pairs with it changes how you like the wines.
Can’t wait till my next visit to the Château!

Oh, how lovely! I love wine dinners. For years we owned a bistro and wine bar and would have seven course dinners twice a month. As the chef, it was a grand time for me to be able to create the pairings and design the food. Delightful.
Thank you for sharing your story! It is always great to see people passionate about their craft. Have a great Saturday!
