Wines served on board the "C'est la Vie"

C'est la Vie will serve wine only when they are at their very best and from their own private cellar. The cellar has one of the finest and most varied selection of wines of any boat cruising on the French canals and rivers, selected and chosen with care over the years and kept until Olivier thinks it is the right time to serve them on the "C'est la Vie".

The cellar is one of the finest and most vast choice cruising on the French canals and rivers.

Selected, chosen and exclusive Cru's accompany your dishes and meals throughout the week.
