Food & Wine Trails is excited to announce Tablas Creek Vineyard has chosen a magnificent cruisetour in the Mediterranean during the summer of 2019.

You're in for a very special treat as the 12-night program from June 16 - 28, 2019 begins with a two night land package from Avignon to Aix-en-Provence that includes Tablas Creek's sister winery Château de Beaucastel.  Tablas Creek Vineyard is the result of a decades-long friendship between the Perrin family of Beaucastel and the Hass family. 

Guests on this cruisetour will have the unique opportunity to visit Château de Beaucastel for a special tour, tasting and wine-paired lunch or dinner with the Perrin family.  Located in the picturesque region of Châteauneuf du Pape, the Beaucastel's bought their land in 1549.  The main house was built later and one can still see the family arms sculpted of stone into a wall.  In 1909 Pierre Traimer bought the property and Beaucastel was passed to the son-in-law, Pierre Perrin.  It is still owned today by his descendents Jean Pierre and Francois and the torch is being passed to the fifth generation.  After your incredible visit to Beaucastel, you will then enjoy an overnight in medieval Aix-en-Provence in the south of France.

Then it's on to Oceania Cruises' beautiful Sirena, which will be fresh from a complete refurbishment of staterooms, suites and public rooms, for 10 exciting nights as you explore some of the most popular ports in Monaco, France, Italy and Spain.
