Take the road to Roquebrun, by the high road via Berlou, Escagnes,
and enjoy views of the River Orb and Gorges d'Heric. Herault, Languedoc, South France
Take a roundabout
way to visit Roquebrun, and you will be entranced by the scenery on the road
to Berlou, famed for its pure waters, and luscious red wines. You will be
driving along roads, that have as a background the Espinouse hills, with
the Gorge d'Heric as one of its splendours!
As Autumn cools the warmth of the Sun, and the vines have been picked of their grapes, the gardens of vines, glow with the variety of colours. Its a warm embrace. Take a visit to Berlou and enjoy the wines at the caves there - and don't go away without purchasing some of the great wines that grow here in the Saint Chinian terroir
Escagnes, Berlou, linger in the higher valleys above the gorges of the Orb river, a river which you can canoe down. It is on the way to the famous Gorge d'Heric, which is well worth a walk along.
Now in December its good to look back at the color of October and November - where the autumn fall colours of vineyards are one of the great wonders of Languedoc - its never too late in the year to visit this area!
