Calling all Ideology Cellars Enthusiasts! 
You are invited to join Bob Williamson, proprietor of Ideology Cellars and his wife Joni for a gentle glide along France's Rhône & Saône Rivers as unforgettable scenery unfolds through Burgundy & Provence. 

Departing May 24, 2020 from Avignon to Lyon, this cruise is destined to be a journey of exquisite pleasures.  You'll enjoy the region's incomparable wine and cuisine and discover its many treasures - from the medieval wonders of UNESCO designated Avignon, to Lyon's lively river banks.  Stroll the very streets of Arles made famous by Van Gogh; visit Avignon's majestic Palace of the Popes; kayak on the tranquil Gardon River under UNESCO-designated Pont du Gard and hike the steepest vineyards on the Rhône. The tradition of Burgundy & Provence is as deeply rooted as the historic grapevines on the hills.
Bob & Joni look forward to seeing friends from their past cruises along with meeting some new ones and can't wait to raise a glass with you aboard the #1 rated river cruise line by Travel + Leisure - Uniworld!

The Ideology wine was really exceptional and we enjoyed every drop we had!  Before this cruise we didn't know about your wine and we were so glad we joined up with your very nice group...our trip was so much more special.
