Wine Cruises are a unique way to immerse yourself in a regional or country’s culture by partaking of not only the local cuisine but also the wines produced from grapes grown and harvested there. You still enjoy the customary itinerary highlights of each city or town as you would on a non-wine cruise, but added to these curated excursions, a wine cruise allows you to experience extra options related to the wine industry: visits to vineyards, wine-tastings, special wine pairings, and opportunities to talk with vintners and other wine experts. And the best part? There is usually no extra cost for a wine cruise over a standard cruise. So whether you are an oenophile, someone who enjoys the occasional glass, or one who uncorks a bottle for milestone events, you are sure to enjoy the added “bouquet” of a wine-themed cruise.
