A taste of the sweet life

Harvesting luscious grapes to savour in a glass!


harvesting loadNow that grape harvest - Vendange - is winding down, it is time to think about wine-tasting and visits to our local wine Cave's to see how that lovely wine we drink is turned from grape to nectar!

Thanks to our close ties with two local vineyards, you can now indulge yourself with one of our "wine & dine" vintner tours.  Combine a 2 night stay at La Dolce Vita with a welcome glass, personal wine tasting, cellar & vineyard visit, along with a delicious 4-course dinner prepared to accompany the wines from the vintner you visit.

After a day of visiting & touring, enjoy the evening at our table with an amuse-buche of homemade pesto straight from the terrace garden; a tomato, pomegranite and sumac salad to savour those last, juicy, red 'love-apples'; all the while sipping a lovely AOC Minervois between bites of a mediterannean chicken and olive tagine, with a touch of preserved lemons, and finish it all off with a chocolate sorbet with the local sweet Muscat for dessert.

Finally, take home a bottle of vin nouveau, just prepared from the recent harvest, and don't forget the hot grilled chestnuts before you leave us and this amazing area.
