Vin en Vacances is a vineyard tour company run by Wendy Gedney, an English woman with a passion for this wonderful area and its wines. Wendy is a wine teacher and during the tours not only will you have a thoroughly enjoyable day, you will also learn a great deal about wine and tasting. Her aim is to provide you with an experience that you can’t easily create for yourself and during the day you will explore the regions, meet some of the most interesting vignerons, taste their wines and enjoy a superb lunch. Wendy's tours always include other fabulous things such as a visit to a goat farm, a pretty village or olive oil tasting.

Marcel was very good company and chose some excellent wines for my friend and I to sample. The boat was lovely and they took the time to let us experience a lock which neither of us had done before. It was a lovely private tour - highly recommended. I'll be back!

We decided on the Vin en Vacances wine tour and could not be happier with the choice. Kate was our tour guide and took us around the region of Minervois. She was so engaging and informative we ended... More

Wendy was superb to work with to arrange a customized shore tour from our cruise stop at Sete. In one fantastic day our guide, Marcel, whisked us from the ship to Carcassone for a visit to La Cite' (early enough in the day to avoid the crowds), then on to the village of Lagrasse for a fine lunch, an afternoon...

This was a really well organised holiday, based in Carcassonne. Wendy and her team were extremely knowledgeable and well organised. Our hotel was small, comfortable and welcoming. The highlights of our tour were access to small and varied wine producers, eating traditional french food in lovely rural settings and walking in the surrounding countryside. I would thoroughly recommend this holiday.

The Languedoc is a beautiful place to visit, and an educational experience with fine wines, the best of olive oil, beautiful villages, and friendly people. The way to experience all of the best the region offers is to plan and make the visit with Wendy. Wendy is a superb guide. She is extremely knowledgeable about the wines, culture, and history...

An excellent tour! Carlos our tour host was exceptional and his knowledge of the wines and the local areas was second to none. This tour has the personal touch and with a home cooked regional lunch,all of which was locally sourced - is great value for money. A fantastic and interesting day in the Languedoc - don't miss out.....

Had a great day with Kate around the Minerve area sampling wine & olive oil with lunch in between. Learned a lot, drank a lot and really enjoyed the day. Kate is clearly passionate about her wine & food so made it a pleasure to be with her. Don't think I've ever drunk wine at 9.45 am before!
