Shellfish & Vermouth
Direction Marseillan. Arrival in the late morning for a visit and tasting of the Vermouths of Noilly Prat. It was in 1813 that, inspired by the unique aging process of wine in the 19th century, the wine and spirits merchant, Joseph Noilly, created his first recipe of French vermouth.
Then continue to the Ferme Marine, restaurant, with stunning views of the Thau Pond! The lagoon is separated from the Mediterranean Sea by a sandy beach, which connects the volcano of Agde and Mount Saint Clair de Sète. The Canal du Midi leads into the Thau basin and the pond communicates with the sea at Sète and Marseillan. This is why the water is made up of both seawater and fresh water, which gives oysters a slight nutty taste and a true variety of biodiversity: several bird species as well as a rich marine fauna.
Lunch with an all-you-can-eat shellfish and seafood buffet.
