Join Me on a Cruise through Southern France


Burt Wolf,  the host of the public television series Travels & Traditions, and I had such a great time on our last cruise we've decided to do it again next year but this time we're going to cruise down the Rhone river through southern France! We would love for you to join us and help support PBS.  



We will be your on-board hosts throughout the entire cruise. This is a unique opportunity to travel with us, see some of Europe’s most fascinating cities, and experience the places where Burt films his television programs and get a feel for how I select wines when putting together a wine list. We will begin in Lyon and cruise through beautiful wine growing regions where such famous wines as Beaujolais, Côte du Rhône and Chateauneuf-du-Pape are being produced. We will also have an opportunity to explore the ancient town of Avignon and visit Mediterranean Arles, the city which Vincent Van Gogh captured in many of his master pieces.


Le Baux


I will also conduct wine tasting classes on board, Burt will offer lectures on everything from architecture to the history of chocolate. Each night we will enjoy a wonderful dinner paired with wines that I have selected for the cruise. Personally, I can't wait to visit the many patisseries, chocolatiers and bakeries in France - my favorite part. Oh and of course we will include wine destinations too - we will be in France after all! And if you're really looking to make this an extended European getaway there is an optional pre tour of Paris and 3 day post tour of Barcelona.
