In the 90th we owned the Swedish wine import company Via Domitia, which was specialized on Languedoc wine. Now, as retired and living in Languedoc, we are still interested in wine and have the opportunity to have our former producers nearby and also to explore many new vine-yards. We like to share that experience with you in this guide.

CHATEAUX DU VIEUX PARC – 1 ave Vignerons, 11200 Conilhac-Corbières

As most of the vine-yards in the area Château du Vieux Parc  is concentrated on red wine of AOP Corbières. They also produce one white and one rosé under this classification and a red Vdp Hautrive.

We first came in contact with this vine-yard in the 90s when we were wine importers and we still visit them occasionally to get a case or two of their wine. In the next door gourmet restaurant L’Auberge Côte Jardin it is a natural thing for us to choose wine from them with our meal. Our favorite wine is the top quality Cuvée Selection, but all the wines are excellent.

 An unusual thing is that this producer offers wine of older harvests for you to buy. Normally you can only buy the wine that has just been bottled and have to mature it yourself. Here you can get a bottle that is already matured to your taste, open it up as soon you get home and drink it with your meal.

The wine-shop is situated in the castle in the dead center of the little village Conilhac-Corbières surrounded by a park. If you happens to visit the yearly November jazz festival in the village, where you can enjoy world star artist – do not forget to get there a little early and visit the château to get a few cases of the lovely wine.
