Uniworld’s Epicurean Adventure Program™ includes a special French Master Chef-set dinner menu and a tasting of Arcachon oysters—a local delicacy—onboard, as well as chateau and wine estate tastings and a Cannelé-making demonstration on this culinary-rich journey.

Sail three rivers on this journey—the Garonne, the Dordogne, and the Gironde—and savor the unique gastronomical heritage of southwest France. You’ll be treated to a sumptuous display of culinary magic throughout your journey. Taste regional delights including—duck confit, caviar d’Aquitaine, and oysters. Indulge in an onboard meal designed by French Master Chef (and owner of the two-Michelin-star-rated Relais and Chateau Hostellerie de Plaisance in Saint-Émilion) Philippe Etchebest. And delve deeply into the Bordeaux region’s exalted wines. You’ll travel the Médoc wine route to partake in a wine tasting at an exclusive wine estate; visit the cellars of Premier Grand Cru to savor some of the world’s most highly rated wines; and embark on a study of Sauternes, meeting the winemakers of this region’s sweet wine and enjoying a wine-pairing lunch at Château d’Arsac.
