Wine Fair Mini-Cruise Sets Sail on Start of Seasonal Service

# WINE FAIR MINI-CRUISE – Some passengers travelling on today's Irish Ferries inaugural sailing of the seasonal operated Rosslare-Roscoff route are taking a Wine Fair mini-cruise, writes Jehan Ashmore.

To celebrate the start of summer sailings to Roscoff, the special Wine Fair themed round-trip mini-cruise is been run in conjunction with a beverage supermarket located in the Breton port.

Before Oscar Wilde docks in France tomorrow morning those booked on the Wine-Fair sailing will hear lectures presented by wine-growers from leading wine regions. Among them are producers from Bordeaux, Loire Valley, Languedoc Roussillon, Loire Valley, South of France and the Rhône Valley.

Aside this weekend's Wine Fair mini-cruise, Irish Ferries have been running their regular mini-cruises which provide opportunities to purchase wine, beer on a DIY buying trip.

The first mini-cruise started this week on the Rosslare-Cherbourg and they are also available on sailings serving Roscoff. Mini-cruises are valid for travel from Ireland up to 19 June and from 27 August, subject to availability.
