Dear Wine Society Members and Friends of Corner 103,

I am so happy to have teamed up once again with Food & Wine Trails for a very special 2018 journey.  This time we are trading in our ocean "sea legs" for a tranquil glide along the Danube River aboard Uniworld's exquisite 150-guest SS Maria Theresa.   

The 10-day perfectly composed itinerary encompasses no less than five countries in eight days - Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic.  We'll begin in the city of Budapest, where you have the choice of arriving 2 days before the cruise with Food & Wine Trails' optional 2-night pre-cruise package or you may arrive on the day of sailing and embark the ship. As we progress along the picturesque Danube River, through the very heart of Europe, together we will witness classic sites, charming towns, old-world capitals, magnificent architecture and medieval villages.  And when we arrive at our final port of Passau, it's not over!  We'll transfer to Prague and spend 2-nights ashore with Uniworld's post-cruise program in one of the most beautiful locales in all of Europe, with its fabled skyline of spires and turrets.

Some of the greatest highlights for me are the onboard wine experiences.  In addition to extravagant welcome and farewell dinners, I will host a wine seminar and tasting, you will sip and savor hand-picked wines with select meals plus you don't want to miss the Wines of Wachau Valley shore tour from Durenstein which includes private estate tours, tastings and a scrumptious 3-course wine-paired lunch.

As you can see there is a lot in store for us and I look forward to seeing many old friends and welcoming many new friends!
