After glowing reviews from a successful 2018 Danube River cruise, Food & Wine Trails is pleased to partner again in 2019 with Paumanok Vineyards and their exciting & new acquisition of Palmer Vineyards!

Winery owners, Charles and Ursula Massoud have chosen to explore Burgundy & Provence along France's Saône & Rhône Rivers.  Departing June 2nd aboard Uniworld's magnificent S.S. Catherine, you will travel through the heart of France’s Rhône Valley, following the footsteps of Van Gogh, Cézanne, and Gauguin on an exquisite journey of southern France. The same beautiful countryside and culture that inspired the masters will equally inspire you as you discover treasures along the way, from the magnificent Palace of the Popes to a millennia-old Roman amphitheater still in use.

There has never been a better time to travel with Uniworld, recently voted #1 River Cruise Line by Travel + Leisure 2018 World's Best Awards.  Super Ship, S.S. Catherine, continues their tradition of excellence and Uniworld guests enjoy an all-inclusive experience including: gratuities, beverages, wines and beers, internet and Wi-Fi access, superb shore excursions and meals impeccably prepared by chefs using the finest and freshest ingredients from local farmers markets.
