Exploring England's Sparkling Wines

This pre-cruise land program is waitlist only. For complete description and pricing contact Food & Wine Trails.

Southern England is now one of the fastest growing and most exciting wine regions in the world. It is also one of the most pleasurable places to visit, offering centuries of history infused by charming architecture and landscapes, mixed with an abundance of English hospitality and cheer. The result is a 'dosage' worth savoring.

Food & Wine Trails has partnered with our long time friend and sommelier, Kelly McAuliffe, to host this exclusive pre-cruise program, along with a local wine expert to provide you with an introduction to English sparkling (and some still) wines. The three day package is set in the heart of South Downs National Park and a short distance from the region's top producers. From rolling farmland and ancient woodlands to picturesque market towns and historic estates, this area embodies the quintessential English countryside holiday.

Highlights include:
• Tour hosted by sommelier Kelly McAuliffe as well a local wine expert and guide
• Accommodation at a charming, traditional “coaching inn” in the scenic town of Midhurst
• Culinary experiences ranging from traditional to modern English cuisine and on to afternoon tea
• Wine tastings at three of the best sparkling wine producers in the region
