For many, traveling to France can be an opportunity to enjoy fine wine, excellent food, see beautiful landscapes or immerse themselves in cultural sightseeing or night life. Students enrolled in the field studies course, “Adventure in France – Wine and Gastronomy Tour”, get to experience it all… while earning credit. They tour the French countryside, sampling regional delicacies and learn about the major French wine-producing regions through classes and tastings at local vineyards. The trip is a rich experience in cuisine and culture.
