400 year Old Oak tree

Trees like rivers are always fascinating!

This oak tree is a remarkable example. It is reputed to be over 400 years old. It is on the top of a windy plateau high up in the hills of the Minervois. The tree has a central cusp, which you can sit in and admire the amazing views. There is a story that if water is found in the cusp of the tree then there will be rain forecast for the area! ....There is not too much rain around this area, but the tree seems to thrive.

When visiting UK wine people and friends arrive we frequently visit this beautiful tree and taste a selection of wines from the area, whilst taking in the sensational surroundings.
