Barging in Burgundy - Wine Lover's Alert!

What pairs best with Red? Water.

The network of rivers and centuries-old canals that crisscross Burgundy – France’s fabled wine-producing département – were practically tailor-made for pleasure cruising. Life unfolds at a different pace in this pastoral part of the world, and nowhere is that more obvious than from the deck of a piloted river barge (or peniche) that doubles as your floating hotel. Come experience central France on the sly.

You could take a class to become a sommelier, or you could hop aboard a barge and take your wine education on the road – or water, technically. Explore Burgundy’s countryside villages and vineyards during this eight day
tour along the Saône River. Cycle through scenery that will make 40k (25 mi) feel like a breeze, soak in the local way of life around a deliciously laid table, and explore the historic wine capital of Beaune. Don’t take notes, just taste them.

Aligra Wine & Spirits has chartered a whole barge May 18 - 25, 2019 for an exclusive wine themed adventure.

Only 10 cabins available (20 people) plus your hosts Alison & Grant. In addition to the great itinerary, we will be offering private winery visits, tastings and some pre and post excursions in France.

Deposit of $500.00 per person by May 31, 2018 will guarantee your cabin.  Only 5 cabins remain!
