This immersive journey across 31 days takes you to the gastronomic heart of France, the renowned Bordeaux wine region before taking you to Portugal with the disctintive cuisine and Port wines, a practice that has been passed down through families for centuries. In Bordeaux you’ll visit Grand Cru Classé wine estates, cycle through picture-book landscapes, learn about the winemaking process, and try your hand at preparing French cuisine in a cooking class. Beyond the culinary, the region serves up a wealth of historical landmarks, from elegant châteaux to churches that have been around for longer than most of the new world. In the South of France taste the gourmet offerings in Lyon, the food capital of France, and immerse yourself in the acclaimed Burgundy wine region, sampling different varieties as you soak up the picturesque scenery. Marvel at iconic sceneries such as the Palais des Papes in Avignon and visit Arles to see the sights Vincent Van Gogh so famously painted during his time here before continuing onto a cruise along the Douro River, transporting you to days gone by. You’ll find locals still ply their traditional trades as they have for centuries, regional fare is authentic and honest, and the locals are welcoming and passionate about their heritage.
