French Cruise Brings Oenophiles to French Wine

France Cruises has joined with the U.S.-based French Wine Club to promote a one-time itinerary. Known simply as the French Wine Club Cruise, this week-long excursion combines the historic sites of Provence with trips to family-owned vineyards. France Cruises serves as the sole booking agent for this vacation package.
The French Wine Club—founded by France native and current California resident Michel Boucher—brings unique wines from independent French growers to American wine connoisseurs. For this cruise, Boucher reverses his usual style and delivers wine connoisseurs directly to the wine as French growers produce it.
The one-time cruise departs May 9 with space for 18 guests only. Some itinerary highlights include wine tastings at Chateauneuf du Pape, sampling organic vintages at Chateau des Coccinelles, and discovering Gallo-Roman wines at Mas les Tournelles. A sommelier will also educate passengers on board during the cruise. The price of this package per person is $2,850.
