Sip & Savor the Pacific Northwest - Hosted by Mindful Wine & DPP Travel

Oct 22, 2023 to Oct 30, 2023
Pacific Northwest

SIP AND SAVOR THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST

Sail on the American Empress as we swirl, sip and embark on a sommelier-guided wine adventure cruise highlighting the beauty and bounty of the Pacific Northwest. Serenity and bliss will find you as you travel along the Colombia and Snake Rivers from Vancouver (Portland) to Clarkston (Spokane) for a uniquely curated trip of a lifetime. 

Where the landscape is as agriculturally rich as it is breathtaking, the best of the Pacific Northwest is on full display in the Colombia Gorge. Aboard the charming American Empress river vessel, historic locks and dams alongside plunging cliffs give way to rolling farmland, inspiring awe, and wonder. Among the optional activities on this cruise include guided wellness practices to embrace the moment, food and wine experiences to nourish body and soul, and off-the-beaten-path adventures to connect more deeply with nature. 

Whether you are a wine lover, foodie, nature enthusiast, or all of the above, this is sure to be an experience you will never forget.
