Discover a unique collection of ports and off-the-beaten-path destinations in 2019 with Bill, Dawn and Sam Williamson of Williamson Wines.  You'll encounter in-depth experiences across the United Kingdom, France, Portugal and Spain for a captivating journey, from châteaux to saints.   You'll appreciate the slower pace of a fall cruise to Europe, when the summer crowds have subsided and the weather is mild.

Highlights of this 12-day cruise from London to Barcelona include an overnight in Bordeaux, a designated UNESCO World Heritage city, allowing for time to truly immerse yourself in the area's fabulous vineyards and magnificent châteaux and delight in tasting superb wines.  Food & Wine Trails' exclusive optional shore tour takes you to the right bank of Bordeaux and the appellation of Saint Émilion for a full day of tasting at several estates, including a Grand Cru Classé.

An additional overnight onboard Oceania's Nautica takes place in Lisbon, Portugal.  You'll find plenty to do here, such as visiting the ornate Belem Tower and Jeronimos Monastery or take a shore tour through the scenic countryside.  Then its on to Spain, where four ports of call await, with your cruise concluding in vibrant Barcelona.

As your seasoned hosts, the Williamson family have exciting plans in the works for private onboard events that will include receptions, seminars, tastings and the ever-popular Epicurean dinner featuring hand-selected wines from the Williamson library.

    We love how the Williamson's were able to make the trip about the wine club and about what we were going to taste in each of the events.  We met so many wonderful people!
