Please join me on a virtual visit of Saint-Chinian and some of the surrounding area! I’ve found a number of videos on youtube, which I think will give you a great taste of Saint-Chinian and its surroundings!
To start with, a walk that takes in the countryside surrounding the village:
Next, a couple of videos which show Saint-Chinian from the air:
I found several videos about virtual wine tastings of AOC Saint-Chinian wines. The following video is about the wines of Chateau Pech Menel, whose wines I have enjoyed a great deal!
Fréderic Revilla of Restaurant Le Faitout in Berlou participated in a programme about wine and food pairing. The video is in French only, but you’ll get the idea – just don’t watch it when you are hungry, the food looks delicious!
Here is another aerial video showing the landscape around Saint-Chinian – it will give you a good idea of the vast and varied terrain of the area.
Domaine des Pradels is in a little hamlet just outside Saint-Chinian, nestled in a little valley. The wines are very good, so add it to your list of wineries to visit next time you are in the area!
And to end our virtual visit, here is a video of the Saint-Chinian jazz festival 2019!
I hope you have enjoyed our virtual visit!!
