Wine tasting in the sky

Passengers will learn the principles of wine tasting and sample a selection of German wines. You can then watch films about winegrowing while you sip a glass of wine.

The Vine Hotel located in the Funchal region of Madeira is named as a tribute to the island’s world-famous wine. Each of the hotel’s four floors represent a different season for the wines; for example, the Winter floor is grey and the Spring floor is green. Even the spa offers ‘vinotherapy’ treatments using Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet grapes.
