Dear Friends,

Pahlmeyer is excited to be among the first wineries to experience Crystal Cruises' newest luxury river yacht - Crystal Debussy.  Please join us for gentle glide along the picturesque Rhine River next summer from Basel, Switzerland to Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Flowing nearly 800 miles, the Rhine River's storybook villages, breathtaking landscapes and lush vineyards will astonish you.  This is the home of the Riesling grape grown on steeply terraced hillsides dating back to the days of the Romans.  We'll discover together no less than six German cities, including ancient Cologne; Kehl (gateway to Strasbourg) and the dreamy wine town of Rudesheim.

You can expect a bountiful selection of Pahlmeyer wines for your tasting pleasure, a private welcome reception and wine-paired winemakers' dinner.  More details will be announced soon, but don't wait to book as space is limited with only 106 guests on the entire ship.  Contact Food & Wine Trails today at 800-367-5348.
