In celebration of Wine Tourism Day on November 12, AmaWaterways is inviting travelers to toast to the holiday with a special offer available on its wine-themed cruises – showcasing the acclaimed wine regions along Europe's Danube, Douro, Mosel, Rhine, Rhone and Seine Rivers. Celebrated globally, Wine Tourism Day promotes the concept of traveling to wine regions around the world and highlights the economic impact of wine tourism.

Travelers who book an AmaWaterways wine-themed sailing can now save up to $1,500 per stateroom, with dates available throughout 2017, and will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich heritage of the world's most famed wine regions.

In addition, AmaWaterways' co-owners – Rudi Schreiner and Kristin Karst – collaborated with winemaker, Jim Clendenen, to make AmaWaterways' very-own Concerto Wine. The partnership has resulted in a red Pinot with flavor notes of dark red fruit, wild strawberries, earth, spice and cocoa.
