FRANCE I (2 June 2016)

The "voyage" begins at 7pm with a reception of chips and canapes. Move around the deck with a glass in hand and get to know your fellow voyagers - trust us, wine is more fun with friends! At 7.15pm, shortly after "setting sail", our invited guest wine specialist Ms Akimi Yeo will deliver a short presentation on the wines of the evening, as well as interesting facts and trivia about the regions from which they hail. Thereafter, continue to mingle around and sip on the day's wines, or chat up our team of wine specialists and aficionados present, who will be more than glad to share with you their passion and insights on the wonderful world of wine.

Sail with us along the Saone River, past rolling green hills dotted with mustard fields and medieval villages. This is Burgundy, home to some of France's most gorgeous countryside, and the epitome of old-world Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. Elegance and sophistication are the order of the day here, along with a zesty minerality thanks to the region's limestone-rich soils which date back nearly 200 million years! We will be visiting Domaine Daniel Rion, a family-owned winery with 45 acres of vineyard plantations in the Cote de Nuits and Haute-Cote regions, producing quality wines that very much reflect the taste and tradition of Burgundy.

As we navigate downstream and head into the Rhone River, experience a change in climate and wine styles. Our next stopover will be in the Southern part of the Rhone region, where the climate takes on a distinct Mediterranean influence and the wines tend towards a more intense, complex style. We will be tasting wines produced by Pierre Henri Morel, a native of the Rhone Valley, made with grapes from the respectable villages of Laudun and Signargues.
