We also decided to prepare packages of 18 bottles per couple per week, 6 for lunch and 18 for dinner, combining the best for each region, at two prearranged prices: degustation at 200 Euros and Luxury at 400 Euros (plus VAT).
Unless otherwise stated by the various captains, we decided to apply producer's prices to your wine list. That makes your wine tasting holidays afloat substantially cheaper than a classic wine tasting vacation, where restaurants apply very high margins for their service.
