Narbonne's Palace of Wine
Time to destination: as little as a half hour

I spotted this wonderful store by accident fumbling my way through Narbonne several years ago. On its shelves you will find the best and rarest wines made in the Languedoc-Roussillon, the selections never found in the supermarkets. Labels you read about in books and reviews, you're liable to find here. Try my favorite, the red Haut Gléon.

Fastest route: From our house, go to the Autoroute, the A9. Head south toward Barcelona. Get off at exit 38 (Narbonne Sud). After the tollbooth, turn immediately toward Narbonne Centre. You'll be on the N9 at that point, headed into the city. Le Palais du Vin is at the third rotary ("roundabout" to you Brits). Scenic route: In Valros, take the N9 toward Béziers. Go through Béziers, to Narbonne. Cling to the N9 right through Narbonne. As you start to leave the city, you'll pass the Palace of Wine.
