Food & Wine Trails welcomes Woodward Canyon Winery!

Located in the Walla Walla Valley appellation of Washington State, Woodward Canyon Winery has produced award winning wines since 1981 under the leadership of owners, Rick Small and Darcey Fugman-Small.  In addition to the many accolades bestowed upon this winery over the years, they are also proud to be honored with the first Washington wine to make Wine Spectator's Top 10 List in 1990 for their Dedication Series #7, Cabernet Sauvignon. 

We invite you to join Rick and Darcey, who just so happen to specialize in producing Bordeaux varietals, on a lovely 8-day river cruise in the brilliant Bordeaux region of France aboard Uniworld Boutique River Cruises - voted #1 River Cruise Line by Travel + Leisure 2018 World's Best Awards.  The newly upgraded S.S. Bon Voyage will travel the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers through some of the most beautiful scenery in all of France.  Along the way you'll sip the region's premier wine, discover some of the finest French cuisine, visit charming villages, three UNESCO World Heritage sites and so much more.

While on board ship, Rick and Darcey look forward to sharing hand-picked wines from their extensive library during private wine events, including a welcome reception, tasting and hosted dinners.
