THE HEART OF WINE

A Barge Journey on the French Canals

June 12-18, 2024

Treat yourself to a unique experience of exploring and learning about the Heart of Wine, as you glide through magnificent canals and explore magical towns in France.

Spending a week on a beautiful barge on French canals with a Master Somellier will be a magical, harmonious and memorable event. Cruising on a barge affords you the luxury of visiting several French villages without ever having to pack or unpack for the entire week. You also avoid congested streets and vehicle pollution while viewing amazing landscapes all along the route. Given that the barge travels at a low speed, you may at times choose to walk along the canal paths to stretch and get a bit of exercise. There are also bicycles on board for those who wish to explore a bit of the countryside.

Your trip begins in Paris with a delectable dinner and an evening cruise as you marvel at the lights and mysteries of this extraordinary city. After your first night on the barge, you begin discovering the Oise River as it meanders through the wooded countryside it has carved meticulously throughout history. This cruise includes a multitude of historic sites and guarantees an in-depth look into the colorful culture of France.
