Food & Wine Trails is thrilled to announce our 2019 Danube Wine Cruise Experience - a journey for aficionados of European history, music, art and of course wine.  Sommelier and Austrian Wine Expert, Elisabeth Eder will host this amazing voyage.  Elisabeth is in very high demand as one of the top guides and wine experts in Europe and we are so lucky to have her onboard as your wine host and cruise guide.  Her impressive resume includes multiple diplomas in wine education from both Austria and London, Austria's 2012 Business Woman of the Year award, WSET-Diploma holder, cheese sommelier, first Ambassador of Champagne in Austria - just to name a few!

Join Elisabeth on June 26th embarking in dynamic Budapest, located on each side of the Danube, Buda and Pest each have its own distinctive character and allure. You will have plenty of time to explore both, as the SS Beatrice docks overnight as your "boutique hotel" on water.  You're in for a treat aboard the newly refurbished SS Beatrice - this jewel of a ship has a sleek new look, graceful bow, updated lounge, restaurants, public rooms and staterooms.

Sail along the Danube River to imperial Vienna and Wachau Valley, celebrated as one of the world's most beautiful landscapes, continue into Germany and past charming Bavarian villages.  This enchanting voyage provides a variety of ways to enjoy captivating destinations as well as plenty of time to relax onboard with a glass or two of regional wines hand-selected by Elisabeth as you sail through a series of locks and onto historical Nuremberg.

Food & Wine Trails' shore tour department is busy putting the final touches on our optional wine-themed shore tour in the Wachau Valley, as well as a 2-night pre-cruise Discover Hungarian Wines program.  Keep checking back for announcements on these optional tours.
