Le Chai Port Minervois at the Capitainerie in Homps is well known for it's excellent choice of local Minervois wines for tasting. If you enjoy wine tasting, this is a fun way to pass the time waiting for your barge trip to begin.

A specialist in Minervois wines is there every Wednesday and Friday from 10 am to 12 pm and the program presents the vineyard, its characteristics, tasting of 3 wines representative of the appellation and an introduction to the basics of tasting. Reservations: tariff: ?12 / person with a maximum of 12 persons.

There is a rigorous selection process so you will be tasting the best the Minervois has to offer.

For those wanting to know more, from May to September Chai has a "Rendezous with Winemakers" on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and the last Friday of the month from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM. The local winemakers discussall aspects of the trade and the "secrets of cave" of each!

There are other special events throughout the year. Check the web site below for a schedule.
