Delightful vintages from beautiful surroundings

Our sommelier carefully hand-picks our wine selection each evening, sourced from local and regional vineyards. Robust reds and delicate whites are served to showcase the best of what the local region has to offer. Discover some of the regions where we source our wines below.

Rhine and Moselle

The Rhine and Moselle valleys are responsible for much of Germany’s wine, including both white and red varietals. Crisp Riesling and rich Pinot Noir characterise the region’s viticultural offering, with historic vines growing on the steep slopes which rise from the iconic Rhine River.

Wachau Valley and Austria

Wachau Valley, Austria
Austria is one of the oldest wine-growing nations on Earth, and it’s from here that we source a number of our prized vintages. The Wachau Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the River Danube, is revered for its old-world vines, while the Austrian capital, Vienna, is the only city in Europe which produces wine at scale.

Douro Valley

The charming, rustic ‘quintas’ of the Douro Valley have produced port wine for centuries, and the region is today recognised by UNESCO for its viticultural heritage. With Emerald Cruises, you’ll have the opportunity for a tour and tasting at one such Portuguese vineyard – giving you a taste for the region’s authentic flavours.
