Tourisme de Terroir

Aperitif at a wine farm

The wine grower welcomes you to his property, invites you to visit his vineyards and shows you his wine cellar. During this visit the wine grower explains his 'savoir faire', his choice of vine varieties and his fabrication methods...

After this initiation you can try a selection of wines grown on the domaine, accompanied by some other local produce. The wine tasting along with the other local products will allow you to appreciate typical flavours of the Pyrenees Orientals.

Local rural ideas!


Festivals and farmers’ markets! The key to finding out the essentials: unusual and authentic flavours, enchanting landscapes, a warm and convivial welcome…

Wine tasting



    At the Arnaud de Villeneuve cellar we feel that wine must have a character and authenticity that is linked to the place where it is made and to the philosophy of those who make it: a sense of place and local character that will recount the history of the land...a land of wines. Our Saint Laurent de la Salanque shop is located in the centre of the village on the road that goes to the beaches. It is a welcoming, modern and friendly place. We invite you to watch an educational film about wine growing in Roussillon, and to try a selection of our wines to suit your taste. From local and varietal wines to Côtes du Roussillon and Vins Doux Naturels (natural sweet wines), we can offer you the entire palette of wines from our Catalan wine areas. This free tasting concludes with the exclusive discovery of our collection of old vintages of natural sweet wines from Rivesaltes.
