Wine based tourism

Patrimony and domaines


The history and makeup of this delightful Gard village continues to charm and fascinate those who live there as well as visitors. It’s well known for its medieval centre and lively activities, as well as its listed chateau which, throughout the summer, lays on spectacles based on daily life of the Middle Ages : defence, stone work, games and puzzles for  young visitors.


The town’s expansion was dictated by the moods of the river.  The Vidourle has always been responsible for the agricultural riches of the Gard region and especially the village of Quissac,  although summer drought can turn to torrential flooding in the winter. Nowadays Quissac brings history to life for those who love agriculture, architecture and countryside. Worth a visit : the temple built facing the Vidourle with its incredible view over Quissac, and the 19th century dam.


A medieval, almost fairy tale village, Sauve is a great base for rambles over land where luxuriant vegetation springs out of the limestone land. Green oak and bay have replaced the cherry and micocouliers trees which over the years transformed this wild land into a luxurious garden. Lovers of local, picturesque walks should meet on the Mer des Roches lane where they can commune with nature, or be guided at the conservatoire de la Fourche for a trip back in history.

Mas des Cabres at Aspères

Four generations of wine producers have succeeded each other since 1724 in this family domaine.  Situated half way between Nimes and Montpellier, the vineyard and cave have recently been transformed so as to produce wines that are as tasty as they are different. Hence “Wine for Ignoramuses” : a jaunt through the vines, where all your senses will thrill at the different aromas and tastes.

Domaine de Massereau at Sommières

In the same family since 1804, Massereau has constantly evolved with the times ensuring its place at the forefront of regional agricultural. In an outstanding setting, it has produced wines that were even appreciated by English royalty. Nowadays, Arnaud Freychet will make you welcome as you visit his domaine, in particular tasting his rich, fruity wines.
