The Mediterranean is a landscape of history and exquisite beauty.  Quaint villages cling to the craggy islands, ancient olive trees and vineyards climb the terraced hillsides combined with the dynamic blending of old and new in Italy, Spain, Greece, Croatia - visiting some of the most rewarding destinations on earth. 

The pace is blissfully easy during our hosted Mediterranean wine cruises.  The scenery is spectacular, service is unbeatable, cuisine is delicious and the wine is impeccable.  There's entertainment, activities and excursions when you want them, and restful corners for reading, napping or contemplation when you don't.
