Cruises & Tours
Why travel with Food & Wine Trails?
A wine cruise or land program offers the conviviality of traveling with a group of like-minded people with a myriad of private events, dinners, and tastings scheduled onboard the ship and on land. Your adventure is two programs in one—exclusive group program PLUS all the fun and features of cruising on a deluxe ship or trekking off the beaten path in discovery of hidden wine treasures.
How we differ:
Our Hosts Onboard and Ashore. All hosts are nationally recognized winemakers, winery owners, sommeliers and chefs.
Our programs onshore. We are the only company in the world with its own network of food and wine travel experts who offer our groups an insider’s view into the region’s culture, cuisine, and wines. Our wine tours greatly differ from the normal “cookie-cutter” excursions. Each is custom‐designed to take you off the beaten path and to focus on the food, wine, and culture of each region, and provide unique and authentic experiences that you simply cannot do on your own. This is why our customers rate our food and wine cruise programs as the best parts of their trips.
Value. Our programs offer private onboard and onshore events, plus benefits such as free gratuities, shipboard credits, and free airfare. (amenities vary by program)
Quality. We personally meet every supplier we work with and travel frequently to keep current. We have over 40 years of involvement in food and wine, living in the Sonoma County wine country and handling programs and events for the nation’s top wineries, food and wine publications and enthusiast groups. We travel the world to find the best wine and food guides, wineries, restaurants, hotels and cruise lines. We cook, garden, collect wine and are involved in national and international food and wine issues. This is more than our business…it’s our passion!
Original programming. Our programs are specifically designed for the food and wine lover.
Peace of mind. We are the only US food and wine travel and tour company endorsed by a major travel insurance company (Allianz), your investment is secure.
