Meet the Masters of Wine
Susie Barrie & Peter Richards


Making wine entertaining and exciting is what Susie Barrie and Peter Richards do best. These award-winning Masters of Wine impart fascinating insights into the wine and spirits of the places we visit on a handful of exclusive European river cruise departures.

"Wine is one magical way of discovering the fabulous places, people and stories that surround us – travel is another. That’s why we’re excited to be partnering with Riviera Travel, to help make their trips even more informative, delicious and fun."

Susie and Peter are best known for presenting the wine slots on BBC1’s ‘Saturday Kitchen’ for over a decade. Their impressive broadcasting credits include Sky One, BBCs 1 & 2, ITV, Food Network, BBC Radios 2 and 4.
