We are ecstatic to welcome back Hartford Family and La Crema!  In 2019 these two world-class wineries have set their sights on the fabled Rhine River from Basel to Amsterdam!

With Germany on one side, France on the other the mighty Rhine carries ships through a landscape shaped by time and history.  Medieval churches and castles appear around each bend in the river, and vineyards climb the verdant hillsides.  Picturesque towns and historic cities seem to jump right from the pages of children's fairytale book. 

Your gracious hosts, Don Hartford, his wife Jennifer Jackson Hartford, and daughter Hailey Jackson Hartford-Murray look forward to discovering with you the region that the Riesling grape calls "home" and its steeply terraced vineyards dating back to the days of the Romans.  Visit historic cities, including ancient Cologne and Kehl (gateway to picturesque Strasbourg).  Also on the agenda is Breisach, your launching point to two of Alsace's best-known wine villages - Kaysersberg and Riquewihr.  

While onboard Uniworld's S.S.Antoinette you can expect a bountiful selection of Hartford and La Crema wines for your tasting pleasure, during private receptions, tastings and a special dinner with the winemaker.  But before you step foot aboard ship, consider arriving a couple days early for Food & Wine Trails' exclusive 2-night pre-cruise optional land program.  Get to know your fellow travelers and wine enthusiasts as you explore Basel and the Wine Road of Alsace.   We have also arranged for two wine-themed shore tours exclusive to Hartford and La Crema guests.  These optional tours explore Germany's Pinot  from the port city of Kehl and Riesling's from Rüdesheim.  Our top-notch shore tours take you to some of the most sought after wineries with exclusive tours, tastings and wine-paired luncheons.
