Gourmet dining and fine wines are an intricate part of barge cruising.

And then there’s the excitement of cruising the Burgundy Canal! Aboard the deluxe barge Apres Tout, you will observe the beautiful countryside and scenic villages along the Burgundy Canal from the elegant teak sundeck of your barge. With central air conditioning and heat, generous suites with ensuite bathrooms, a library and a hot tub on board, this luxurious home away from home has all the amenities you could desire, from heated towel racks to bicycles for getting closer to the idyllic countryside. The demonstration kitchen gives you the chance to ask even more questions about both wine pairings and cooking with wine.

So whether you have memorized the list of Burgundy Grand Crus or need some help understanding the difference between a Grand Cru and Premier Cru, this cruise is the ultimate chance to answer all your questions, tantalize your taste buds with unforgettable vintages and even ship your favorite wines home so you can host a tasting of your own for your friends or local wine club.
