Heading towards the centre of the village, cross the bridge over the Orbieu and, in front of the belfry climb a few steps to the left in the Impasse de l’Horloge to join the centre of the village a little further on. Turn left in the rue des Nobles, take the avenue des Vignerons then the rue de la Pinède (nice wrought iron wayside cross). Both mountain bikers and hikers share this part of the trail. After the housing development, you’ll get a nice view on the vineyards stretching out on the hillside as well as the Ferrals hills just behind them. You’ll walk uphill on this country road, a dry-stone wall to the right, and terraced plots with pine, almond, olive and cypress trees to boot.

When the road forks, continue on the path uphill both itineraries share. To your right you’ll see the basin of La Prade, with vineyards liable to flooding, with its garrigue isle planted right in the middle and with its vestiges of former sheep barns. To your left, the garrigue has taken over the terraced plots of formerly cultivated land, lined with low walls and planted with pine trees.

On the top of the hill, you’ll leave the joint path and turn left (north / north-east) on the path lined with almond trees which crosses the Lauza. Several hillocks with garrigue, pine trees, olive trees, holm oaks and walls made of the stones that were removed from the fields make up the landscape, together with the hillside vineyards.
  One sheep barn still has its shed roof (for protection against the dominant Cers wind). To the left, a path leads to the superb viewpoint indicator, made of Ferrals stone. The view really is worth the short roundtrip.

Soon the Boutenac pine wood with its lookout post will appear in the distance (south-east) before the northward bound descent will allow you to contemplate another view, this time over the Minervois region, the Montagne Noire and its highest point, the Pic de Nore (1211 m) and, closer by, the Lézignan pine wood massif and the village of Conilhac. After having walked alongside a low wall, you’ll reach the remains of the sheep barn de la Martine (landmark A on the ‘Sentier vigneron des Corbières’ / ‘Corbières wine-grower’s path’).

You’ll start your way back by turning left. Walk down a rough track then uphill again on a small track in a pine wood area (view on the Lézignan plain and on the village at the foot of Mont Alaric). The path is lined with dry-stone walls and surrounded by terraced plots, wild or planted fruit trees (olive, fig, almond, blackberry bush) and vineyards. Once you get to the D161, turn left and walk past the Wine Cooperative back to the village.

de Fontsainte
Domaine de Fontsainte - Boutenac
A.O.C. CorbièresDomaine de Fontsainte is in the heart of the Corbières celebrated ‘Golden Crescent’ - one of the appellation’s most beautiful and beneficent terroirs. Fontsainte's intensely sunny, gently sloping, south south-east facing vineyards shelter from cold north-east winds on the flank of a 500-hectare pinewood massif. The domain dominates the landscape around the hamlet of Boutenac, enjoying panoramic views. Fontsainte’s vineyards, just 95m in altitude, benefit from a pristine environment (far from industrial or urban developments) plus alternating Mediterranean and oceanic influences. Innovation is a tradition at Fontsainte. We were among the first to practice carbonic maceration (vinifying whole grapes) and barrel aging. For us, innovation means looking forward - with thermo regulated 150 hl stainless steel vats (right) - and backward - with traditional 200 hl cement vats, whose thermo stability is legendary. But more important than our equipment is how we use it...

Officially designated ‘One Of The Most Beautiful Villages In France’, Lagrasse nestles at the confluence of two valleys in the stunning Corbières wine region of the South of France. The village is linked to the 8th century Benedictine abbey to which it owed its original prosperity by two graceful bridges spanning the river. Between Carcassonne and Narbonne, Lagrasse is set in the Orbieu valley, in the Corbieres massif. The Orbieu river separates the abbey, rising over the left bank, from the village which spreads along the right bank and is listed as one of the most beautiful villages of France. The foundation charter of the Benedictine Abbey of Sainte Marie de l'Orbieu dates from the end of the 8th century, even if another building probably existed on the site before the Carolingian period...
