Harvest time has come

We are in September and who says September says: harvest period. It is during this period that the winegrowers harvest the grapes from their vines to make their wine production. By hand or by machine, the harvest period is generally between the end of August and October, depending on the region.

Visit Noilly Prat in Marseillan

Noilly Prat is one of the most drinks in the world. Joseph Noilly, a herbalist, developed the first formula in 1813, 50 years before the now archetypal vermouth, Martini. "White" Noilly Prat is the archetype of dry, straw-coloured French vermouth. Noilly Prat now makes Red and Ambre vermouths as well, introduced in the 1960s and 1980s, but they are less widely known. Produced in the small seaside town of Marseillan, there are organised daily visits as well as a large shop.
