Wine tasting and concerts at the domain of “La Perdrix”
The domain of “La Perdrix” is run by Nathalie Gil’s (Manager of 4 star rated camping “Ma Prairie”) brother-in-law André Gil. The domain is situated in the village of Trouillas, at 15 kilometers outside of Perpignan. You’re only half hour by car away, from the vineyard, where you can visit the cellars and enjoy a memorable wine-tasting.
Wine, a Family Affair
The domain of “La Perdrix” was founded in the 1820’s by André Gil’s great grandfather. Back then, wine making was more of a tradition and more so a family affair. It was in 1997 that André Gil and his spouse Virginie took over management of the 32 acre vineyard, with the same passion for the Mediterranean wine producing land of their ancestors. The climatological conditions, the quality of the soil and their know-how, are the very factors that enable them today to produce their wide range of aromatic high quality wines.
An original commented wine tasting accompanied by local products
In highseason, every Thursday night, Domaine la “Perdrix” turns into a dancing! As of 19h30, a commented wine tasting, accompanied by a plate of local products (cheese, cold meats etc.) is proposed by the master of the house during which you will learn about the different techniques of cultivating, methods of vinification and the winemaking-process and the characteristics of the soil of “les Aspres”. Among the different varieties of vines we find at “La Perdrix” notably the Muscat of Alexandria, Syrah, Carignan and the Grenaches, Noir Blanc and Gris.
List of Honours:
After the wine tasting, the evening is prolonged musically until 23hrs and you can either enjoy a brought along pick-nick for supper or have a barbecue since there are grills at your disposal. The grand finale of the evening is a concert from 21h30 until 23h00.
An outing devoted to conviviality, and sharing the pleasures of good food and wine!
