"We set out to prove that Fitou doesn't have to be supermarket wine,' says Jones. 'The potential for quality wines down here is enormous."

Katie Jones moved from Leicester to the Languedoc in the ‘90s to work for a cooperative and fell in love with the romantic, rugged landscape of this often-overlooked appellation. In 2008 Katie decided that it was time to bite the bullet and buy her first vineyard. She now has vineyards in Maury, Tuchan and Paziols.

There are many remarkable things about Katie Jones. Katie chose to work vineyards that many would turn their noses up at - vineyards that require intense manual labour and electric fencing to keep the wild boar from eating her crop! She has also overcome spiteful vandalism and through stubborn determination and the help of her husband Jean-Marc and many of her fans around the globe, today produces honest wines full of personality that showcase the potential of her terroir and old vines.

On the 18th November we will be tasting six of Katie’s wines; potentially some new vintage releases, most likely something in limited availability and almost definitely one of her favourite wines from her ‘Along Came Jones’ range – Hairy Grenache anyone?

It is a real treat to have Katie as a guest in our Turl Street Tasting Cellar, to hear first-hand about her journey and to taste through a selection from her exceptional portfolio. The low yields of her old (and in some cases ancient!) vines in conjunction with her viticulture and winemaking style mean these wines are available in limited quantity only, so don’t miss this excellent opportunity!

Due to Domaine Jones ever-growing popularity and reputation we expect this event to sell out quickly so please book in advance to avoid disappointment.
