Wonderful time at Dominik Benz.
Dominik showed us around his vineyard he was hospitable and happy to answer all our questions. Free tour and wine tasting. Just make sure you buy some wines to take home.
Such a beautiful setting.
Highly recommended.

Dominik Benz is a young Swiss winemaker who has established vineyards and a winery on the outskirts of Le Fossat. You can visit and enjoy a conducted tour of some of the vineyards - with impressive views of the Pyrenees - and then visit the intimate winery to see how the wine is made. He uses organic principles so no artificial fertilisers or pesticides are used in the vineyard and chemicals such as sulphides are not used in the wines. A great insight into the amount of hard work and knowledge that go into making these wines on a small scale. We were guided by the winemaker himself - fluent in German, French and English - who then presented a tasting of each of the wines he has available (six at the time of our visit). The work that has gone in to crafting these wines is reflected in the price but they were all excellent and represent very fair value of money in my view. At the lighter end of the scale I really enjoyed the Rosé Beau Regard - excellent colour and deeper in taste profile that most French rosé. A wonderful summer drink. At the top end of the scale was the Le Roi made with tannat grapes that resulted in a wine very deep in colour, complex on the nose and a very rich palate of flavours. A very impressive young wine with potential to develop. The wines in between were also impressive. The tasting was accompanied by a generous plate of local delicacies, local cheeses, bread and charcuterie to keep our palates fresh. We paid 15 euros per head which, considering what we learned and tasted over the 2 hours was good value. It was easy to book the tour in advance - +33 675 59 36 01. We visited on a weekend.

We visited the domaine of Dominik Benz on Jun 14, 2019. We mailed them very late the night before, but already early next morning we received message that we were very welcome that same afternoon. We were warmly welcomed by Anne Laure and were very happy she also spoke English. She first took us for a walk over the domaine and explained the different grape races and how to recognise them and the work that needs to be done in the different times of the year. After that she explained and showed us the full proces of making the different wines. All very interesting with the best part still to come, the tasting of the wine, all eleven wines. Off course we left the domaine with several cases of different wines. Thank you for a great afternoon.

We were greeted with a warm welcome by Dominik and enjoyed a great informative tour of his vines followed by an excellent wine tasting. Dominik has a clear vision for making his wines and is producing excellent organic wines.
Well worth a visit in this beautiful, non crowded part of France.
