Specialist in Pairing Travel with Wine

If you love travel and wine, then I must be your travel adviser.  I have a Level 2 Award in Wine from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust and have the experience of past, current, and future travel through the the best wine regions.  I am an acknowledged river cruise expert, and river cruises are a great way to go to the places where the best wine is made.

I host wine inspired cruises all over the world and specialize in creating wine themed tours and excursions for wine loving couples and small groups.

For 2024, I am hosting a cruise from Paris in the Spring, to visit the landing beaches of Normandy.  I'm hosting the best 4th of July vacation ever on a cruise in southern Italy with stops in Amalfi, Sicily, and teh sole and the heel of Italy's boot.  In the Fall, we cruise from Amsterdam to see the Castles of the Rhine, the Swiss Alps and finish at Lake Como in Italy.  We end the year seeing the magical Christmas Markets along the Danube River, sailing on the beautiful AmaMagna, the most innovative river cruise ship in Europe.

Why travel and book with me?

  • You will have a lot of fun and enjoy a great vacation.  My groups have the most fun tasting and learning about wine while traveling to the places where the best wine is made.  Our hosted cruises typically offer a different wine tasting every day or multiple tastings in a single day and our favorite wines are often brought onboard for enjoyment with dinner in the evening.
  • You will save time.  Whether joining one of my groups or traveling independently, you will benefit from my knowledge and experience in travel planning and my network of hosts and partners throughout the world.  
  • You will save money.  The relationships that I have, and the deals my groups receive, cannot be matched by the general public.

Rhone River Cruise

Our trip started in Lyon, the culinary capital of France, although I opted out of traditional Lyonnaise Bouchon, which specializes in organ meat.  Lyon is a beautiful city with a rich history and was enjoyable to visit.

From there we visited a small family winery in Beaujolais, where the wine...Read more.
