A Sense of Place
Through our wines, we aim to create an expression of the terroir and the landscape. In celebration of this, the food at Domaine du Météore is designed to work alongside our wines, each bringing out the best in the other. Everything we serve is locally grown, produced and foraged – to create a true sense of place.
When you visit the Domaine during the summer months, you can enjoy a picnic while you’re here. Wind your way through vines and olive groves to the crater’s edge, and unpack a hamper filled with some of the best local cured meats, cheeses, seasonal salads and more – with wine to accompany it, of course!
€40 (for two people)
Wine from €11 per bottle

‘The Crater at Domaine du Météore’
On selected summer evenings, we will take 24 guests on a vine-side gastronomic wine-tasting journey, with a six-course degustation menu. Everything we serve is inspired, grown and created by the land and the meteoric history that created them – a journey from astronomy to gastronomy.
Begin with aperitifs and canapés in the caveau before a gentle walk through the Domaine’s olive groves and vines as the sun descends, taking in views of the Caroux mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, with the breeze carrying scents of wild thyme, mint, cistus and fennel.
The dinner will take place at the foot of the crater itself, on long tables laid beneath the trees. We may even catch sight of the meteor showers after which our wines are named. Each of the evening’s dishes has been created to complement our range of wines – using ingredients borne from the same land as the wines themselves. We will use produce grown organically here at the Domaine, foraged from the surrounding woodlands or sourced from local, organic growers, and everything will be cooked over a wood fire stoked with the prunings from our vines.
The vineyard is quietly nestled in the Haut-Languedoc national park and we are delighted to welcome visitors for tastings, walks and more. With sweeping views down to the Mediterranean and, at our heart, the huge meteorite crater after which we are named, it is a truly one-of-a-kind place to visit.
