In the spring of 2021 we are doing something exciting!  Scratch Wines is hosting an all-inclusive river cruise on the beautiful Danube, sailing for 7 nights from Budapest Hungary to Vilshofen Germany.

Our ship on the Danube is the beautiful M/S AmaCerto, built in 2012 with a capacity of 162 guests in 81 state rooms.  I will host three formal tastings, comparing our own wines of Monterey vs. those of central Europe.  On board AmaCerto we will also enjoy a private Chaine des Rotisseurs dinner paired with my wines from both the Wrath and Scratch labels.

We’ll voyage for 7 leisurely nights up the Danube, visiting idyllic Austrian villages, all centers of wine production going back to the Middle Ages.   This is a fantastic journey full of fun, music, stunning scenery and fine wine.  Special events will be included for members of our Scratch Danube Group. 

For pure scenery, great cities and picturesque villages, this is the best river cruise in Europe.  The size and scale of Budapest will surprise you.  Vienna is simply a stunning, a city full of music and history.  Prague, never destroyed in WWII, has evolved from Communism into a first rate city full of good hotels and restaurants at value prices.  English is spoken well by most Czechs now.  It’s a beautiful and romantic city with a skyline dominated by medieval church spires, centuries-old bridges and winding, cobblestone streets.

PRE AND POST CRUISE LAND PROGRAMS
