Following a scenic motor coach transfer through the Dutch countryside, arrive at the village of Groesbeek. Nestled amid rolling hills and valleys, this is where award-winning winemaking was launched in 2006. 

Gain an appreciation of the town's burgeoning wine tradition at the recently opened Dutch Wine Center, which is dedicated to a socially, ecologically and economically sustainable process for viticulture, wine production, wine analysis and more. During a guided tour, as you learn how the center works to achieve its mission, you'll see the vineyards and explore the cellars where the winemaking takes place. After your quick course in viticulture, you'll have a chance to savor a selection of wines made with the finest grapes of Groesbeek.

Your wine-tasting adventure concludes with a comfortable drive by motor coach back to your Crystal river ship.
