Wine cruises may be a way to save as well as savor. ‘‘Given skyrocketing airline costs and the devaluation of the dollar to the euro, a wine cruise by far offers the wine lover the best value,’’ says Larry Martin, president of Food & Wine Trails, which offers the trips. A typical one-week wine tour of France in 2009 could cost $6,000-$7,000 per person including airfare, but not all meals, entertainment, or gratuities. A Food & Wine Trails wine cruise costs about half that, the company says. For a list of sailings go the company's website or call 800-367-5348.
