Explore the Wines of the Danube and Eastern Europe by land and 9-day River Cruise spanning 5 countries

Most great wine regions of the world are near a body of water, either a lake, an ocean or a river. This has a mitigating factor on vineyards but also adds a dramatic setting which makes wine touring exhilarating.

Most of these bodies of water lend their names to the wine region: the Mosel, the Douro, Finger Lakes. But there is only one that actually passes through not only several wine regions but also several countries.

The Danube makes its way through 10 countries from Germany, Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria and Moldova.

On this tour we’ll pass through spectacular vistas of Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, and Romania, experiencing not only the beautiful scenery of each country but also some surprisingly good wines along the way. This exciting exploratory tour includes 3 nights Budapest, 2 nights in Brasov, 2 nights Bucharest by land and 8 nights Cruise on the premium MS Vivaldi in upper deck cabins traveling through Budapest, Osijek, Novi Sad, Belgrade, the Iron Gates canal, Ruse, Giurgiu, Oltenita, Bucharest, Constanta, Sulina, Tulcea. In addition to our customized land portion, and to ensure the best wine visits for our participants, we coordinate and arrange our own excursions to area wineries.
