In the heart of Roussillon, Bages is a dynamic commune with a wine-growing tradition. Between the sea and the mountains, several cellars offer high quality wines, made from century-old grape varieties and worked by the sun.
The astonishing Casa Carrère…
Born from the imagination of a talented dreamer, the construction of this building was launched in 1954 by François Carrère, winegrower and wine merchant. To give it character, stones around the windows are deposited and over time, the house has been completely covered with them. Initially designed as a dwelling house, it became the Museum of Naïve Arts in 1991, before closing its doors in 2002.
In 2007, the building was bought by the city and became the Casa Carrere. Since then, it has hosted cultural and festive moments, especially on the occasion of Sant Jordi and FestiBages, in summer.

Wine cellars… and beer!
In the Plaine du Roussillon, wine production is the main agricultural activity. The particular conditions of the terroir, with its arid lands and quite exceptional sunshine, influenced by heat and drought, offer generous, pleasant and balanced wines. The vineyards of the hilly landscape between Bages and Brouilla, cultivated according to the know-how transmitted by the ancients and associated with today's techniques, produce a remarkable selection of white, rosé and red wines.
