My friends from the International Wine Guild will be hosting a wine cruise.  The flyer below contains most of the information.
Join Us For A Wine Cruise
June 28 - July 5, 2014 PLUS a trip to Umbria before the cruise

From Rome To Barcelona!
10-Night Luxurious Wine Cruise
Our June 28th, 10-day "Rome to Barcelona" cruise is in its final stage of booking. If you have not yet booked your cabin, please be aware we can only guarantee cabin inventory until February 15th! After this date, booking requests will only be honored on a "space available" basis.

So if you want to go, please book now so you can enjoy the widest selection of prices and cabins.  This 10-night luxurious wine and food journey would make a wonderful Valentine's present! Per person pricing, based on two to a cabin, begins at $4,474 including round trip airfare from 26 US cities.

And if you book now, Oceania's normal deposit payment has been reduced to just $750 per person.

This cruise begins in the "Eternal City" of Rome, and we know you'll want to arrive early to insure you don't hear those fateful words "You just missed the ship"!  To encourage early arrival, Food & Wine Trails has released their special 2-night pre-cruise package that includes a boutique Rome hotel, an overnight at a Tres Bicchieri rated winery in Umbria with a wine-dinner, a cooking class in the classic hill town of Orvieto and a transfer to the ship. Claude Robbins will be onboard as the host, and the full 10-night tour will count as one of your required Level 3 wine trips if you are working on a Level 3 diploma!

Onboard the ship Claude will host a Welcome Reception for the group, a special wine pared dinner and two private wine education seminars. All these events will be with wines chosen by the Guild.

During your cruise, you have the opportunity to participate in two optional private excursions. In the port of Livorno, you will enjoy a perfect Super Tuscan-day visiting Azienda Agricola Tua Rita , the very first Italian winery to receive a perfect 100/100 score from Robert Parker.  In Marseille, France the group will visit the world renowned wine region of Chateauneuf du Pape with a wine-paired luncheon cooked by a Michelin-starred chef and a private tasting Domaine de la Janasse, another highly rated winery.

Contact our travel partner Food & Wine Trails
or visit before it's too late to reserve your stateroom and pay a lower deposit PLUS FREE airfare to Europe, FREE pre-paid gratuities, FREE internet package and up to $150 in shipboard credit to spend on Oceania Cruises beautiful ship, Riviera. Those are some awesome perks!

Claude is looking forward to sharing his knowledge with you about these amazing wine producing areas and creating an experience that you will remember for a lifetime.
