Celebrate the music, history and culture of the Lower Mississippi River with Papapietro Perry Winery in 2018.  The seven night journey begins and ends in New Orleans, a melting pot of French, African and American culture.  Experience southern charm at its finest and explore historic towns, beautiful gardens and grand plantations along the mighty Miss'. Delve deep into the history of the Civil War, exploring battlefields, monuments, and museums that echo the stories of this defining time in America.
