Oz Clarke, one of the country's leading wine experts and broadcasters, commented: "Whether you’re an existing wine buff, or simply have a love of fine wine, fine holidays and good times, the Voyage du Vin 2019 is sure to delight. I’m already looking forward to joining Queen Victoria in September."

Clarke will be joined by award-winning columnist of "The Wall Street Journal" and now "The Sunday Times" and broadcaster Will Lyons and co-chair of the International Wine Challenge Charles Metcalfe.
