After a private tour of the grounds and castle at Château de Pennautier, the producers were invited to visit the cellars and enjoyed a wine tasting session over a gourmet lunch.
The producers were able to make the most of the surrounding nature and architecture through a private touristic flight taking them over the Pyrenees mountains, the walled medieval city of Carcassonne, the local Cathar castles and the Mediterranean coastline. A remarkable visual sample of the variety of locations the Occitanie region offers.

The team at the Abbaye de Fontfroide warmly welcomed the producers through the Romanesque and Gothic styled monastery via two personalised visits, one for each group as they waited for their touristic flight.
