Virtual Wine & Travel to

FRANCE

Families that sweat together stay together, right? While we love the Eiffel Tower and days spent running around the Louvre, France has more than just Paris to excite families, and traveling with Backroads on a bike throughout the Loire Valley has the makings of a fairy tale.

Storybook castles. Towers, flying buttresses and flawless gardens. Fertile fields, graceful rivers and idyllic cycling routes on dedicated bike paths. Exquisite treats at patisseries and gourmet meals. The Loire Valley—a family getaway that ends with "happily ever after." Join us on December 9th, along with our friends at Birmingham Wine to taste our way through France and learn more about this European Adventure!

Virtual Wine & Travel to

SOUTHERN AFRICA

Join us for a virtual trip through Southern Africa with Big Five Tours & Expeditions, featuring South Africa wines and cheese curated by our friends at Birmingham & Rochester Wine.

South and southern Africa has so much to offer, up close animal encounters where most of your time is on foot, on a bicycle, in a photographic hide, or even on horseback. With the historically rich Cape Town and the diverse wildlife concessions of South Africa on one side, the floodplains of the Okavango Delta and the Skeleton Coast of Namibia on the other side, and the Kalahari Desert in the middle, this part of Africa offers an adventure like no other. This is where ecology meets anthropology.

Thursday, December 17, 2020 - 6-7 p.m. EST

Presenters:

Ashish Sanghrajka, Big Five Tours
Jean-Jacques Fertal, Rochester Wine
Hélène Fertal, Birmingham Wine
