Located to the south of Lézignan on the other side of the A61 motorway, Château Maylandie is easily found on the outskirts of Ferrals-les-Corbières. Owners the Maymil family have built two holiday gîtes and a swimming pool across the yard from their charming château, which look out onto vines from the kitchen/lounge and barbecue-equipped terrace, and they also run an organised vineyard walk around a few different areas within Corbières-Boutenac. You can try the wines in their shop at the entrance: favourites include the tasty concentrated Villa Ferrae (Grenache Syrah Carignan) and maturing tobacco-tinged Carnache (Carignan Grenache), subtitled petites vendanges entre amis as, apparently, those bunches were indeed picked by a few friends.
Useful information: Shop open 09.00-12.30 and 15.00-19.00 though they do prefer you to make an advanced appointment. Gîtes from €700 per week; available for 2-4 nights in low season.
