Hosted by William Betts, WSET Level 4

Some careers take unanticipated turns... Born in Britain and living near Oxford, with a degree in chemistry and an MBA, Will started by working for a global consultancy, before building a company that designs and blends racing fuels for Formula One. It was the extensive business travel involved, with periods spent overseas, that sparked and developed his passion for wine. After years of study and practical research, Will joins us as an experienced, qualified and award-winning wine professional who splits his time advising private clients on their wine collections, judging in competitions, and teaching professional sommeliers and enthusiasts. Will has launched a highly acclaimed Gin brand, and is being sponsored to study for the coveted Master of Wine qualification. Walking the vineyards, over dinner and in lectures, Will looks forward to sharing his enthusiasm for the vinous treasures that we will encounter along the famous Rhine and Main rivers.

Immerse yourself in the many flavors of Europe on one of AmaWaterways unique Wine Cruises, which let you add a unique, epicurean dimension to one of our European itineraries. Like our standard river cruises, guests have the opportunity to join tours that highlight the famous sights in each port of call. These special itineraries, however, offer guests a perfect blend of wine-related experiences and excursions in grand capitals and charming towns. You’ll taste local cuisine, discover how wine is made and, of course, partake in tastings — all at no additional cost. Whether you have a seasoned appreciation for fine wine, or simply indulge in a sip here and there, this is a wonderful way to uncork the traditions of the local culture and learn about the region you’re visiting.

About the Wine Region – The Rhine and Main Rivers

The Rhine along with its main tributaries—the Moselle and Main—have created a wine connoisseur’s paradise, which can be discovered on our Europe’s Rivers & Castles, Enchanting Rhine, Captivating Rhine and Rhine & Moselle Splendors itineraries.

The Upper Middle Rhine’s slate soil combined with a semi-continental climate have proven to be a recipe for wine-growing success for the Rheingau vineyards, yielding high-quality white wine varieties, and some fine reds.
