Grastronomic encore as Ponant’s second culinary and fine wine cruise goes on sale

Ponant's inaugural culinary and fine wine cruise in April made such a wave that a repeat performance in April 2018 is already on sale.

Ponant has created a new itinerary between Lisbon in Portugal and Lorient in France, with carefully selected ports of call in some of the finest vineyards in Europe – from the lesser-known Leixoes and Bilbao, to the famous Bordeaux region.

On board, Ponant will offer two gala dinners organised by chef Pascal Féraud of Michelin-starred Le Jules Verne restaurant, and chef Stéphane Duchiron of the Ore restaurant.

The highlight of the cruise, the dinner supervised by chef Pascal Féraud, will take place with Le Soléal moored by the Bordeaux vineyard of Pauillac, in full view of Château Latour. The menu will be paired with a selection of Médoc’s finest grands crus.

Celebrated cheesemaker Bernard Antony will also be on board and will host tasting sessions of mature cheeses, while Jean-Robert Pitte, President of the Académie du vin de France since 2011 and Member of the Institut de France (Academy of Moral and Political Sciences) since 2008, will give on board lectures.

The Gastronomy & Oenology cruise on Le Soléal will depart Lisbon on 11 April and will arrive in the Breton port of Lorient nine days later. Price starts from £4,500 based on double occupancy.
