The South of France beckons. The wines and cuisine of Burgundy and the Rhone Valley are the focus this weeklong journey from Lyon to Avignon. We’ve chartered Uniworld’s SS Catherine for seven fun-filled days and nights along one of the most renowned wine regions of France.
Seattle’s Chef in the Hat, Thierry Rautureau (Luc, Loulay) will join us to lend his unique talents to the experience. In addition, this cruise will feature Washington Winemakers Kerry Shiels of Côte Bonneville, and Jeff Lindsay-Thorsen of WT Vintners. In addition, Master Sommelier Larry Stone, Co-founder and CEO of Oregon’s Lingua Franca Wines will add to the on-board educational component. We’ll have wine and food discussions, visit cellars, and sample Michelin-starred restaurants, all while exploring villages and vineyards along the river.
