Wine Enthusiasts Sail on Wine Cruise
What could be a better fit than wine enthusiasts sailing on a cruise focused on top-tier wines paired with amazing meals? A cruise such as the Wine, Dine and Music Cruise lets you explore a variety of award-winning wines from wine country without the worry of driving, booking hotels, choosing a restaurant or missing out on your favorite wine seminar or cooking class. Whether you are a novice or expert wine enthusiast this is a perfect opportunity to have a fun, educational and stress-free culinary tourism experience while sailing the seas of the Caribbean.
This wine cruise vacation features top-tier wineries. Ann Macker, co-owner of Flying Dutchmen Travel who organizes this cruise says of the October 2014 wine cruise, “Included again in our program is a complimentary bottle of wine per cabin (aka ‘stateroom’) each evening to be enjoyed “. “Award-winning wineries will be sending along winemakers and sommeliers to delight and educate you on wine, food and wine pairing and even the history of the wineries. Come prepared to be enthralled! You will not be disappointed!” Ann Macker continues.
NewsTimes October 2013 edition notes, “Finding out about wine is like space travel: Once you get going, there's no end in sight. Fortunately for those who choose to be educated wine drinkers, learning about wine is a fascinating experience, full of new flavors, new places, and new friends.”
“You don't have to be a sommelier to enjoy wine” writes Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
“The wine is incredible! The first day we walked into our room there was a bottle of wine there and every day after that we had another one. It was just amazing!” Passenger, Wine, Dine and Music Cruise
“I’ve gotten to know some boutique, little vineyards that I wasn’t aware of before." Passenger, Wine, Dine and Music Cruise
Wine-Searcher magazine writes, “Today, all 50 states produce wine, although 95 percent of it comes from just four of them. California is by far the most prolific producer, and makes more than five times the combined total of the other three, Washington, Oregon and New York. The 5 percent that comes from the other states, led by Texas and Virginia, is produced largely for local consumption rather than national or international markets. The topographical, geological and climatic diversity of the American continent has provided the states with all manner of vine-growing conditions, from higher-altitude, continental climes (e.g. Fair Play) to coastal, fog-laden areas (e.g. Edna Valley). “
When you compare the cost of travel, lodging, restaurants, seminars, etc. to the cost of the Wine, Dine and Music cruise the value is obvious and you get a lot more than you would at a wine event or wine festival. Additionally you have an opportunity to sail away and experience access to top tier wine makers, amazing and talented musicians and world-renowned chefs all the while sailing in the beautiful Caribbean.
2014 marks the Second Annual Wine Dine and Music Cruise. This all inclusive cruise package is a one of a kind experience. The Norwegian Cruise Line, Pearl, becomes the Northern California Wine Country, complete with an award winning chef, gourmet meals and wine pairings, cooking demonstrations and a side order of good old fashioned Rock and Roll.
Don’t settle for simply having "a great trip." Instead, have a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
It's YOUR turn!
