Visit the Charming small village of Collioure

The drive from Port Vendres to Collioure is just over 10 minutes but the drive is stunning through the Languedoc landscape and along the Côte Vermeille. This area is without a doubt one of the most preserved landscapes of the south of France. Upon arrival in Collioure, follow your guide as you walk the narrow streets of this small fishing village.

A fortified church so close to the sea that it seems to float, an old royal castle, colorful boats that seem ready to set out to catch the prized anchovies (a local specialty), this is enchanting Collioure. No wonder artists such as Picasso, Braque, Dufy, Chagall, Matisse and Derain came here as the village, birthplace of the Fauvism painting movement, boasts more than 300 days of sunshine per year.

Languedoc wine tour

After the visit of the village and some free time, participate in a wine tasting session of local wines. The wines produced in Collioure include reds, rosés and a few white wines. The main grape varieties that are used here include Shiraz, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Carignan which are similar to the grapes used in Languedoc wines.

Wine making in the area began with the Greeks around the 6th century BP. For a long time under Spanish rule, the wines produced here have often been described as being more like Spanish wines than French.

The red wines usually have softer tannins and are full bodied with spicy aromas. The rosés produced here have a nice raspberry color to them and can be very aromatic. After the wine tasting session, it will be time to head back to your ship. Depending on the day of your tour it might be possible that the winery tour takes place in Banyuls sur Mer instead of Collioure.

Upon arrival in Port Vendres, we will drop you off at your ship and that will be the end of our services.
