What type of tastings at the winegrowers of Banyuls-sur-Mer?
You will find on the spot the grand cru banyuls which is a natural sweet wine with a controlled designation of origin (AOC). It is not dedicated to Banyuls-sur-Mer but is produced in four towns in the South of France, in the Pyrénées-Orientales department in the Occitanie region: Banyuls-sur-Mer, Collioure, Port-Vendres and Cerbère.
This wine comes from old vines cultivated in terraces on the steep slopes of the Vermeille coast. We are talking about a mutated wine.
During your escapade, you will also discover the wine of Collioure but we are not going to reveal everything to you today. You still have a lot to discover once you get there. Book your online experience now on winalist.com
We wish you a pleasant stay in the south and with our winegrowers who are waiting for you impatiently.
