Famous for its oysters, Marseillan has nothing to envy its neighbouring towns in terms of wines and spirits either. So, if you enjoy sun-drenched grapes or any other ripened fruit, we invite you to discover the history of wine making during your stay in the maritime city.
Since the birth of Marseillan, the vine has played a major role in the local economy, but it is since the 19th century and particularly since the reconstitution of this vineyard that it enjoys a beautiful fame.
Marseillan can now boast of numerous combinations of grape varieties, including high quality whites (Clairette, Picpoul, Terret Bourret, Sauvignon, Chardonney), as well as reds (Merlot, Cabernet, Sauvignon) and rosés (Syrah, Grenache).
To discover all the subtleties, we suggest that you follow in the footsteps of the winegrowers during a guided tour followed, of course, by the long-awaited wine tasting.
You will be able, among other things, to meet the Richemer cellars in Marseillan-Ville and Marseillan-Plage; to taste the IGP Pays d'Oc grape varieties with the Fadèze estate; to travel to the centre of the Earth with the La Madelaine Saint Jean estate; and to discover the two estates of La Rouquette and Les Charmettes.
No, we're not planning a stay in a monastery, but a taste buds' escape in the famous Noilly Prat house.
Located in the street of the same name, this exceptional site will take you back in time to discover its century-old cellars and the first French vermouth, but will also offer you the opportunity to compose your own cocktail (with Noilly Prat, mind you) on the port of Marseillan... To be consumed with moderation!
