I’ve river rafted a number of times in California. So I know there’s nothing as exhilarting as the combination of hot sun, cool rushing white water, the pumping of adrenaline, and a little bit of danger.
The O.A.R.S. Wine on the River trips offer a civilized twist on this type of wilderness adventure and are aimed at those who love wine and rafting.
After a day of splashy adventure, you can enjoy gourmet meals and premium wines by some of the best vintners in the West, introduced by regional experts. What sets the wine trip apart is not just river guides, but knowledgeable wine stewards and five-star cooking. With this delicious combo, dinner seems more like a fine restaurant experience than a campsite on a scenic river.
