Upcoming Food and Wine Courses in the Minervois

Julia Bristow, the owner of the spectacular Château Ventenac, which overlooks the Canal du Midi in Ventenac-en-Minervois, is offering two courses this autumn for all you food and wine lovers out there!

September 25 - 30
A five day/four night residential course which offers the opportunity to learn seasonal Mediterranean cookery with Rachel Demuth, owner of the award winning Demuth's Vegetarian Restaurant in Bath, now in its 20th year and Jo Ingleby, experienced chef and cookery tutor.
The vegetarian course includes four cookery sessions with a combination of hands on cookery and demonstration where we will create delicious Mediterranean meals together using the best seasonal vegetables, local oils and wines. We will visit a local market, visit local producers and have a special wine tasting with Juliet Bruce Jones, Master of Wine.

October 2 - 6
Discover the fabulous wines of the Languedoc on a wine tasting holiday weekend with your expert wine guide, Juliet Bruce Jones.
Juliet is a very good friend and I've had the pleasure of being a second (and much less educated) opinion on a few wine tasting outings with her. Juliet's knowledge of wine is extensive and her enthusiasm for the wine of the Languedoc is contagious!
I wrote about her Wine Tours earlier this year.
