In Vino Veritas is Latin for “in wine [there is] truth”. The Greeks had a similar phrase. The Gallic and Germanic tribes always held council while drinking wine because they believed that if one was drinking wine they could not tell a lie. The ancient Babylonians phrased it as “in comes wine, out comes a secret”.
There is no secret to wine, yet it is mysterious. Its complexity and variety can make understanding wine overwhelming. But the mystery of wine can be unraveled, and once understood, there is a wide world of wine to be tasted.
To help folks understand wine and to encourage people to travel and enjoy life, we lead canal boat excursions through French wine country. Riding along on a canal boat, at a walking pace, on your own watery road, through the many canals that lace through France is nothing but pure joy. This is a relaxing vacation that you’ll never forget as you are enthralled by French villages, castles, vineyards and of course, local wines.
