Day 4: Carcassonne - Limoux
Breakfast at your hotel.
Pick up at the hotel by your driver-guide and transfer to Limoux. You will start the day at the vineyards of the Domaine de Gayda, with it's interesting history and wine making philosophy. A visit to the ultra modern facilities, followed by a comprehensive wine tasting will give you a good idea as to why the stunning domain is so successful.
We suggest a top quality lunch in the restaurant of Domain de Gayda.
After lunch, a guided visit of the 14th century Abbey de Ste Hilaire and its cloisters will take you back in time and you will visit the actual cellars where sparkling wine was first discovered in 1531.
Next stop is the family Domaine, for a tasting of Blanquette and Cremant wines in their wine cellars. Surrounded by beautifully restored wine making equipment, it gives a fascinating insight into the region, its history, traditions but also shows a way forward for wines of the region.
Back to Carcassonne & overnight in your hotel.
