The permanent tour

Wine, a trade and commerce product since its creation, has crossed the oceans. It accompanied the crews of this era, gave merchants their wealth, and thus helped to create links between people on different continents.
Ships were filled with poor quality wines transported in bulk to quench the thirst of the population or exceptional wines destined for wealthy customers. Carried in Phoenician, Greek or Roman boats, wines conquered the entire Mediterranean from the reaches of the Roman Empire to the Baltic.
Become a passenger on a merchant ship and depart on a historic voyage with four stops across the world’s seas. You will cross the Mediterranean on a Roman tanker vessel, take a 14th-century trip from Bordeaux to England, sail to Japan in a 17th-century Dutch boat, and finally complete an 18th-century transatlantic journey in an English boat full of Madeira.
