Taste of Bordeaux Wine Cruise:
May 25-June 1, 2017

Taste, tour and discover Bordeaux and the Loire Valley with Dry Creek Vineyard owners, Kim Stare Wallace and Don Wallace, and Master Sommelier, Peter Granoff.

Bordeaux is the capital of Aquitaine in Southwestern France and one of the world’s undisputed wine capitals. While on this 7-night cruise, you’ll discover stately châteaux, abundant vineyards and stunning scenery as you sail along the Garonne River and its surrounding estuaries, calling upon port cities like Cadillac, Bourg and Libourne. Enjoy tastings of some of the region’s most distinguished wines and visit notable sights on this incredible journey.

Prior to the cruise, join Kim and Don on a remarkable three day Loire Valley Trip. Experience the French countryside that inspired Kim’s father, David Stare, to head to California 45 years ago to start his own family winery, Dry Creek Vineyard. Discover the landscapes, unspoiled nature, beautiful gardens and breathtaking castles of the Loire Valley, all while sampling the incredible wines that made the region famous.
