New for the 2018 season, we are proud to offer a Wine Lover's package for our Classic Burgundy itinerary. With an emphasis on the region's wines, our tour through Burgundy will introduce you to the essential knowledge and help you become a regional expert. Explore the unique wines, study food pairings, and learn how to build your private collection at home with us on the trip of a lifetime. Crafted in partnership with a local sommelier, our Wine Lover's tour satisfy wine aficionados and novices alike.
A major focus for the tour is the meeting point of fine dining and exquisite wines to tempt the palate. The Grand Victoria's chef prepares every delicious meal with an emphasis on gourmet cuisine perfect for a wine pairing. Every lunch and dinner aboard the Grand Victoria will feature a unique pairing, chosen by a professional sommelier, that highlights some of the region's foremost Grand cru and Premier cru wines. Join him in our demonstration galley and learn some of the secrets to making a mouthwatering meal perfect for serving alongside the region's superb pinot noir and chardonnay wines. Experiencing these wonderful wines in the historic home of both grapes only adds a further appreciation for the terroir that brings forth their best character.
Our wine tour is the perfect opportunity to learn more about Burgundy's perfect climats and terroir, with lessons at some of the region's best wine vigneron, or producers. Learn how to build your own personal wine cellar at Château de Pommard, marvel in the history of Burgundy's storied clos at Clos de Vougeot, and discover the secrets of food and wine pairings at Château de Meursault. Together, we'll explore the Côte de Beaune from Gevrey-Chambertin to Nuits St. George; you'll return home with a broader appreciation of Burgundy's complex, well-balanced wines and the artistry behind every bottle.
