CELEBRATION OF WINE RIVER CRUISES
Celebrate wine as you toast your way through renowned vineyards uncovering the time-honored traditions of winemaking from the winemakers themselves—and taste the fruits of their labor. Enriching wine-themed river cruises are specially designed to further immerse you into the glorious history of Europe’s renowned wine regions, from France’s iconic Bordeaux region to Portugal’s Douro Valley to Germany’s Moselle Valley and beyond. Whether you are a foodie, wine connoisseur or simply indulge in a sip here and there, an enhanced epicurean experience with AmaWaterways gives you a delicious taste of the sweet life.
CHOOSE YOUR IDEAL WINE EXPERIENCE
Each of our Celebration of Wine River Cruises is hosted by an enthusiastic wine professional who leads you through tastings and interactive discussions, accompanies you on select shore excursions to vineyards and cellars, and helps curate a special food and wine pairing dinner on board. Guided by their passion and expertise, you’ll delight in discovering one of the world’s most perfect trifectas: travel, wine and elegant cuisine.
Premier Vineyards and Cellar Tours✨
One of the most delightful aspects of our Wine Cruises is visiting Europe’s unique vineyards and wineries. Whether you’re strolling through France’s 14th-century Château de Montaigne or visiting Austria’s historic and majestic Burg Clam, you’ll taste history every step of the way among storied vines.
Connect with artisans and vintners within the same fields in which their ancestors toiled. Learn how best to pair decadent chocolate with wine; discover how olives transform into the Mediterranean’s prized nectar, olive oil; or be tempted by Austria’s famed Wachau Valley apricots.
Food and Wine Pairing – A Unique Art✨
Indulge in wine perfectly chosen to meld with the food on your plate and on your palate at an unforgettable dinner designed to heighten the relationship between the two. Rosemary-crusted lamb? A clear match for Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Oysters on the half shell? Try a Loire white.
YOUR WINE EXPERT
One of the most wonderful aspects of our Celebration of Wine River Cruises is the opportunity to sail with an experienced wine expert. Their refined palates will allow your clients to swirl their glass and discover the unique notes of each varietal they sip, gain pairing recommendations and get answers to their questions about viticulture and more. Our Wine Hosts proudly bring bottles from either their winery or their favorite winery to conduct tastings and stimulate discussions on board. Most often sailing with members of their wine club, these hosts focus on highlighting the growing conditions and production techniques that create the unique characteristics of their wines as well as the differences between their bottles and those of the Old-World regions we sail through.
