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 is a qualified wine teacher and runs an Approved WSET (Wine & Spirits Education Trust) wine school in the UK. WSET is the leading wine education body in the world. Wendy is qualified to the highest level within the WSET which is Diploma level — one step away from Master of Wine. After qualifying she chose to specialise in the wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon and over the past 3 years she has spent a lot of time in the region getting to know a lot of wine makers and learning more about the region. This year she has decided to take the leap and move to France where she will be running vineyard tours and also courses about the wines of the region. She has chosen to live in the village of Caunes-Minervois and is offering her services to residents and visitors to the village and the surrounding areas.
