Prepare to toast AmaWaterway’s newest itinerary created to please the oenophiles on your client list: Flavors of Burgundy, debuting in 2024. The itinerary joins the 2023 and 2024 Celebration of Wine River Cruises series, designed to immerse your clients in the tastiest versions of a European vacation.
“Since the debut of our Celebration of Wine River Cruises in 2010, we’ve continued to see increasing demand for these epicurean experiences giving our guests the opportunity to sip local wine while sailing through breathtaking wine regions of the world alongside acclaimed North American and European wine hosts,” said Kristin Karst, co-founder and executive vice president of AmaWaterways, in a press statement. “The interest for the fascinating world of French wines is such that we decided to specially curate this new Flavors of Burgundy itinerary, that will take our guests on an unforgettable journey through the beautiful vineyards of this renowned wine producing region of France.”
AmaWaterways’ Tasty Treks Through Wine Country
French cuisine and wine pairings are the highlights of the Flavors of Burgundy itinerary, which takes your clients between Dijon and Lyon in the Burgundy region. Think meals in chateaux and visits to vineyards while enjoying palate-pleasing treats.
And AmaWaterways’ Celebration of Wine River Cruises doesn’t just leave it to the land-based vintners—each cruise is accompanied by a qualified wine expert from North America or Europe. These experts are carefully chosen vineyard owners, winemakers, certified sommeliers and wine educators, and come on board with a curated selection of wine bottles that are served during special meals, tastings or seminars, and it’s all included in the cruise price.
There are over 60 Celebration of Wine River Cruises departing in 2023, including the Taste of Bordeaux (Nov. 9), Magna on the Danube Nov. 12), Captivating Rhine (Nov. 9) and others.
