Schug 2022 River Cruise

The Romantic Danube

We invite you to join us on our upcoming cruise exploring the beautiful Danube river, sailing aboard the luxurious M/S AmaViola embarking on April 29th, 2022.   This is a 7-night cruise, with a 3-night pre-cruise tour to Prague and the beautiful Czech village of Cesky Krumlov. We embark on the Danube from Vilshofen in Bavaria to Budapest.  Hosting the cruise will be our own John Sanders, National Sales Manager for Schug Carneros Estate.

Visit Passau, Linz, beautiful villages in Austria’s Wachau Valley, Vienna, and Budapest.  There is a full-day trip to Salzburg and its stunning alpine countryside, glorified in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music.   Conclude in Budapest, the Hungarian capital that will surprise you with its history, scale, architecture, and substance.  As an option, you can stay two more nights to fully experience Budapest, the Hapsburg castle Royal Godollo and an amazing equestrian show at Lazar Brothers Estate.

Onboard John will hold two private tastings and a paired dinner, pouring our Schug Carneros Estate wines alongside those of Germany and Austria. There are special inclusions exclusively for those traveling as part of our Schug Danube Group. The pre-cruise tour is a special experience, exploring beautiful Prague in the Czech Republic, a city that remained intact through WWII.
