Our winery, Domaine Saint Antoine, is located in the middle of a picturesque landscape, directly at the dried up 'Etang de Marseilette' with a view over the wide valley of the Aude River to the mountains of the Corbières. The famous Canal du Midi is only a few kilometers away and invites you for walks, bike rides or a boat trip. Excursion destinations include the famous Cité of Carcassonne with its medieval walls, the 'Gouffre Geánt de Cabrespine', one of the largest stalactite caverns in Europe and the old abbeys of Caunes and Frontfroide. A trip to nearby Narbonne, whose history dates back to the Romans, is also very worthwhile. Just in the village, in Rieux-Minervois, stands the remarkable heptagonal church with works by the famous Master of Cabestany. The castles of the Cathars as well as the historic town of Minerve, which gave the region its name, also invite you to take a trip into the history of this varied region. In addition, there are numerous hiking trails in the Montagne Noire, which can be reached in about 30 minutes. Especially popular are the visits to the regional weekly markets, where fresh products from the region are offered. A very beautiful bathing lake, the Lac de Jouarres, is about 18 km away, the sea at Narbonne-Plage 65km.
