Wine Ambassador Series River Cruise

APT Raises a Glass to European River Cruising with Wine Ambassador Series Program

As the most innovative luxury cruise operator on Europe’s waterways, APT is constantly striving to enhance what is already a relaxing and unique holiday experience. Which is why APT has teamed up with leading figures from the Australian wine industry to host exclusive river cruises throughout Europe in 2016.

Sailing exclusively aboard APT’s new portfolio of Wine Ambassador Cruises through Central Europe, France and Portugal these special hosts will oversee tastings of regional wines, host special dinners complemented with locally paired wines, lead excursions to wineries to meet local vintners, explain the nuances of traditional wine-making techniques and educate guests on European wine heritage and traditions.

APT’s Wine Ambassador program for 2016 proudly welcomes as its inaugural members:
• Bruce Tyrrell (Tyrrell’s Wines)
• Cherry Stowman (Taylors)
• Darren Davis & Amy White (Seppeltsfield and Aramis Vineyards)
• Nathan Waks (Kilikanoon)
• Sarah and Sparky Marquis (Mollydooker Wines)
• Dru Reschke (Koonara)
• Rob Moody (Somerled)

Every Wine Ambassador will travel with guests for the duration of their cruise and will bring with them a combination of their own wines to showcase to guests alongside local wineries located along the cruise itinerary. These river cruises will offer an unforgettable insight into the history and heritage of wine-making in the regions providing the chance to taste the produce at source while being guided by some of the most outstanding vintners in the world.

APT’s luxury European river cruises are all inclusive and include all meals; complimentary beverages onboard; room service and butler service in select suites, all sightseeing and entertainment; and transfers, port charges and tipping. There is even a fleet of bicycles on board for guests to use at their leisure.
