In the Grip of the Grape

By Suzanne Morphet, Victoria Boulevard Magazine

On a recent wine cruise I learned a few surprising things: a higher alcohol content doesn’t make better wine; the smaller the grape, the more concentrated the flavour; and most importantly, you needn’t go to Europe for a river cruise that takes in award-winning wineries, spectacular vistas and rich history.

In fact, you need go no further than Portland, Oregon. That’s where Un-Cruise Adventures has launched its new wine-focused cruise that takes in four rivers, nine wineries and countless moments of swirling and sipping, both on board and off.
