    > ITINERARY Take Avenue Francis Vals to Place du Foyer, rue des vignerons, then on the left, rue du Cercle. Continue on the Chemin du Vieux Moulin to the first intersection, turn right towards the Fontaine de Loin. You will then be on the part common to the 2 paths which will lead you to a paved road. From there head left and take the dirt road. Then follow the signage.

    The yellow markings of the two paths on the plateau (shepherd's path and winegrower's path) are completed by cart wheels engraved in the stone.These two trails are also punctuated with interpretation plaques, the meaning of which you will find in the Leucate hiking guide. The first part of the circuit is common to both loops.

    > Caution! Stay on the marked path and follow the yellow markings. In summer, in hot weather, remember to bring enough water and a cap. Bring good shoes! You may come across the herd of sheep that has settled in Leucate every year since 2010: watch out for the patou dogs guarding the herd!

Depending on the type of soil, the vine will give different grapes which will make either rather concentrated wines with character or delicious and fruity wines.Discover on your return, the two emblematic grape varieties, their name is inscribed on the “wine glasses” (carignan and grenache). Mourvèdre and syrah accompany them in the development of Fitou or Corbières. Grenache noir, blanc, gris and maccabeu make the natural sweet wine, while the muscat petit grain and the muscat of Alexandria make the muscat of Rivesaltes.
