At the “Clos des Coustoulins,” wine tourism is……
… the discovery of an exceptional environment
In the heart of the Hérault, the Lac du Salagou is like no other. What makes it magical is not only the contrast between the water and this arid landscape, but also a geological wealth and a biodiversity that is almost unique in the world.
This combination gives birth to a marvellous setting for a moment out of time. The majestic and wild landscapes of the Hérault hinterland!
… the meeting with passionate winegrowers
You will discover the best cellars of the Terrasses du Larzac, all converted to organic or even biodynamic agriculture, new nuggets, elegant and original wines, blossoming!
But you will meet men who are revolutionising the way they work the vine and wine compared to their elders, and women who are taking over farms after many generations of men. Artisans of the land who are fighting for a culture that is more nature-friendly, who use their knowledge, their energy, and their smile to offer sunny wines.
… an introduction to the sensations of a quad bike tour
The quad is a vehicle powerful enough to get off the beaten track and flexible enough to smell the scents, observe the landscapes and exchange with others. It is an unusual activity that allows you to mark an event, to fix memories.
… informations and anecdotes from a local
Your guide, Frédéric, will immerse you in an incredible landscape while telling you about the history of this region, without forgetting to tell you about this rich geology.
Course of the day’s wine tour on a quad bike:
• You will arrive at 8:30 am at the “Clos des Coustoulins” and return at around 5 pm.
• Your ride will start with the handling of the Quad and then, the discovery of the curiosities of the Lac du Salagou, its geology,
and its history.
• Your day will then continue through the Ruffes to a wine estate where a winemaker will welcome for an unforgettable visit and tasting.
• At lunchtime, a break in a semi-gastronomic restaurant will be welcome! The menu includes the starter, the main course, and the dessert, made exclusively from local products.
• Once rested, you will set off again along the route des Crêtes to another domain.
We keep the domains and the restaurant secret to keep the surprise. But what we can tell you is that they are all certified organic!
We only organise this tour for a minimum of 4 quads.
