my adventure


the history

In the village of Portel-des-Corbières, on the heights of a majestic landscape, climb the little train that will take you to the doors of the depths of the Earth.
Enter and experience the sensations of an archaeologist who discovers behind a wall of stones, an exceptional site, suspended in time.

Welcome to Terra Vinea !

Here, it is the miners who shaped the gypsum stone. 80m underground, walk 800m through underground galleries, discover different paintings and decorations of the history of vineyards and wine in the “Narbonnaise”.

Little train

An unique


Let yourself be surprised by sound and lights animation sublimating a huge terrestrial arch looking like a Cathedral.

Admire the landscape formed by many barrels of aging wine that will guide you in turn, in an ancient Roman villa, a medieval banquet, an underground lake or a museum of work of the vine. Virtual animations, guided or audioguided tours, you will live a unique experience.

Your senses will awake after this amazing trip back in time, and you will enjoy a tasting of different rigorously selected local wines*.

* You can find these nectars in the shop of the site but also
continue tasting around tasty dishes concocted by our chef, in the restaurant upstairs.
