For wine lovers everywhere

Summer is now upon us. And for lovers of fine wine, there is no better time to take a sun kissed wine appreciation cruise with European Waterways.

Beautiful Burgundy is the wine capital of France. A wine cruise on board the 12 passenger L'Impressionniste on the Burgundy Canal will gives passengers the chance to visit Clos de Vougeot - headquarters of the esteemed Chevaliers du Tastevin.

Or take a different cruise through Burgundy aboard her sister ship, the 12 passenger La Belle Epoque, and visit the vineyards of Chablis and Nuits St George, and enjoy wine tastings at winemakers such as the Domaine Servan, well-known for its superb Premier and Grand Cru wines.

Another wonderful cruise route for appreciating wine is the 300-year-old Canal du Midi in the South of France. Cruise this tranquil, sun-drenched canal on the 8 passenger hotel barges Anjodi or Enchanté. Tour the historic Chateau Guery and Chateau de Perdiguier to sample their internationally renowned Corbieres and Chardonnay wines with Anjodi. Or indulge in tastings in Saint Chinian, the first village in the region to receive the presitigious A.O.C. mark of approval, on Enchanté.

All this with a professional wine guide, gourmet meals on board accompanied by Premier and Grand Cru wines, an open bar, all excursions, private wine tastings, local transfers and of course, the services of an attentive crew.

Price for a 6 night cruise from £2,490pp
