Wine week on board the Luciole!

Cruising through the heart of Burgundy – home to many wonderful wines, this week we offered wine enthusiasts extra, personalised tours of the areas most enchanting local vineyards. Passengers enjoyed sunny cruising weather and trips to several prestigious vineyards including Sancerre, Beaune, Chablis and Irancy. Not to forget visits to the Caves de Bailly, Vezelay Basilica Mary Magdalene and Chateau Meursault.

Guests selected their favourite wines and enjoyed them over dinner back on the Luciole, paired with the culinary delights coming from the kitchen by chef Jade. Happy birthday to lovely guest Dot, a cool glass of Sancerre in hand cruising along the Nivernais– you’re only as old as you feel! Congratulations also on your wedding anniversary with husband Joseph.

Feeling rather vinegary after a joyous week of sipping Burgundian wines it was time for our passengers to leave us, the week was a great success and the Luciole is very sad indeed to see you depart!
