Château Ventenac is positioned amid two renowned wine regions, Minervois and Corbières, making it an excellent base for discovering more about the wonderful wines of the Languedoc.

Ventenac is ideally situated, as most villages nearby have their own wine-producing Cave and our holiday gîte is situated just a few yards from Ventenac’s Cave Co-Operative. This wine Cave is a magnificent example of heritage architecture and shares a rich history with our Château. You can visit next door for an informal tasting and indeed at many wine producers in the area. Details are kept at the Château.

Many of our guests have enjoyed a talk and tasting at Château Ventenac with English and French speaking local Master of Wine, Juliet Bruce Jones. You will need to book in advance, so please contact Juliet for more information.

If you would like to take an organised course or wine tour during your holiday, Vinécole offers a range of wine courses and tastings throughout the year. Located near Limoux, an hour’s drive from Château Ventenac, Vinécole is a wine school run by Master of Wine Matthew Stubbs.
