Terra Vinea: a High Tech Winery and Caves in Languedoc, France

This was an interesting visit to the Terra Vinea Winery and Caves. Terra Vinea is an old mine converted into a wine cave. It’s located in Portel des Corbieres, near Narbonne and Perpignan France in the Languedoc-Rousillon region. The mines closed in 1992 and the wine cave opened in 1999. I have a suspician that someone from the winery visited some of America’s attractions like Disneyland when they thought up the idea of Terra Vinea. The caves are filled with light and music shows, talking walls, representations of a Medieval dining room and Roman villa, and a mining cave. It was still interesting and entertaining. The wines however were not the best. We tasted several but only bought one bottle that we found to be of good quality and taste.
