What a fabulous way to spend quality time with great friends. We just returned from the Wine and Water cruise of the Burgundy Region in France. From our first meeting with Max, the tone of gracious hospitality was set. The beautiful barge is spacious and comfortable, the Reanu’s have built a lovely ship. Max, our captain, Chef Dave and lovely Becky made our trip informative, delicious, and delightful.
Your day is set from awakening to fresh pastries and coffee, we then walked through the beautiful countryside as the barge cruised along the tree-lined canal. At noon we hopped back on the barge and were greeted by Becky with a wonderful selection of wine from the area. Chef Dave followed with a 3 course luncheon on the deck. Chef Dave’s skills rival any top chef. After lunch, we would relax on the barge. The afternoon, always held great surprises for us. Max is not only a wonderful host, but a great tour guide. Max’s knowledge of the area’s wines, architecture and history was amazing!
We would tour wineries, chateaus, museums throughout our afternoons, then return home to our lovely barge. Once back on the barge, we began more wine tasting from selections chosen by Max. Dinner followed and we must say our 4 course dining was remarkable. Great conversations ensued and sometimes even dancing!
For a truly joyous vacation, we highly recommend Wine and Water. It is a great way to reward yourself.
All the Best, Nancy and Zach Zacharias
