The climb is steep, bear left, go under the rock of the Femna Prens.

View over the gorge "Caune Pont" and Sou Valley.

Delicate passage in the rocks. Continue to climb to reach a rocky outcrop promontory: view on the parade of gorges.

Step over a dizzying passage, the rock of Caune bridge overlooking a Neolithic settlement cave.
  Specialities

Here now over 8 centuries, the hot breath of the revolt blew these lands Corbières, sun-drenched and fragrant scrubland. Side terms in the Aude, trails under the pines littered with old stone unknown revisit the history of the Cathars. At the foot of the village houses and Terms gingerbread color, the warbling song Sou quiet water en route to his destiny. By a bridge lined with old geraniums, such as pensioners know so well put in their windows, we crossed the river to begin the ascent of the hill overlooking the hamlet asleep. Rafts of green algae and fat laden pairs of spin dragonflies love to gorges de Caune-Pont, where the water decides to battle with the rock. The stream becomes torrent, agitated and impatient. Troubled by the fuss, dragonflies always mated fly playing a tightrope. The rock "Coyne Punt," a natural bridge between the great void gaping gorges and enigmatic a dark cave, saves the mess of vegetable tray Nitable rock. Boxwood, oaks, junipers and cysts surround the cliff a ruffled fur, maquis pervert who is constantly poking calves. Between puffs of thyme and lavender, cicadas fill the air with their chirping thundering. There is no agreement soon. Only a poet hard of hearing has been talk of "song of cicadas." The path soon plunges hillside towards terms leads to a venerable pile of ruins that tell a dark story of sieges and massacres...

Corbières

A.O.C. Corbières

The Corbières is one of the wildest areas of France with one of the lowest population densities. It is picturesque with wine growing areas alternating with garigue and mountainous countryside. It is located mainly in the Aude département and partly in the Pyrénées-Orientales département. The River Aude borders the Corbières to the west and north. To the south is the River Agly and to the east the the Mediterranean Sea. The name Corbières comes from "cor" a pre-Celtic word meaning "rock" and "berre" from the River Berre which runs through Durban. The eastern part of the Corbières with its Etangs, borders the the Mediterranean Sea and is called the Corbières maritimes. It has its own distinctive climate and characteristic vegetation known as thermomediterranean vegetation...


Vin de Pays d’Oc,
Vin de Pays de l’Aude

Vin de Pays d’Oc, Vin de Pays de l’Aude

Vin de Pays means 'country wine' to the French, but to outsiders it can mean New World with a French accent. These are the wines which the French authorities unreservedly allow to be labelled with the grape variety from which they were made. It is difficult to over-estimate the importance of this large and growing category of wines for the future of the French wine trade. The French themselves may have tended to see any Vin de Pays as distinctly inferior to any appellation contrôlée wine, whereas many of their customers abroad see the better Vins de Pays as good-value, user-friendly, sometimes high-quality non-conformist emissaries from the world's most revered wine producer....
