Despite our efforts to arrive early enough enjoy some of the tasting of olives, oils and wines, Yvonne and I were waylaid in Olonzac at a charming café on our way to Fête de L’Olivier. While there are sufficient photos to get an idea of what was on offer, the focus of the post will be this charming village all decked out for a party.
Bize-Minervois is a small village with a population of just over 1000. It lies north of Lezignan-Corbières in the Aude region of France. While this was my first visit there, I can assure you it won’t be the last.
There were vendors offering regional foods, wines and many other treats. Musicians filled the air and a dancer accompanied them. As usual, the sun smiled down on the event and participants.
Even though we missed the special tastings, and some ceremony,
so much to see, taste and experience we had a splendid day. There is much for everyone and every taste. Be it Confit de Canard, cheeses, breads, wines, music or arts and crafts.
