Corsica is another jet-set destination for vacations, and wine lovers are learning that it’s also a wine destination. It’s a French island of hidden gems and Vin will be happy to share the best that Corsica has to offer.

We’ll begin in the southern portion and move our way north, combining wine, local cuisine and culture. Leave it to Vin to gain access to VIP wineries and plan some exciting gourmet meals.

When we depart October 11 from Calvi, you’ll bring home many memories to share with friends. Or you can join Vin in France for his tour to Provence and the Rhone Valley.
