To kick off the 2020 season we are excited to announce our first-ever wine cruise to CUBAO'Brien Estate sails round-trip Miami aboard Oceania Cruises' newly refurbished SIRENA January 6th with three stops in Cuba, including a full day in Havana.

In another first for F&WT, we have partnered with O'Brien Estate for a second 2020 wine cruise in the fall to the Mediterranean.  Even if you have sailed the Med before, you'll get a whole new perspective aboard Silversea's luxurious new ship Silver Moon, with all-suite accommodations and only 596 guest capacity.  Sail Athens to Venice Sept 23 - Oct 2.

How about a little Aussie with your wine?  Beginning January 6th spend two weeks with wine extraordinaire Dan Kosta (founding partner of Kosta Browne) and Rich Aurilia (former SF Giants All-Star shortstop and Hall of Famer) cruising around Australia & New Zealand.  Airfare is included and you'll have the opportunity to explore wine regions in both countries with F&WT's coveted multiple shore tour options.

After a brief absence we are pleased to welcome back our friends at Ramey Cellars.  Join David, Carla and the Ramey family for a summer river cruise along France's Rhône River.  This region is one of David's all-time favorites and where his inspiration for producing award-winning Syrahs originated.  As Ramey Cellars guest, you'll enjoy tasty Ramey Syrahs plus exquisite Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon while onboard Uniworld's S.S. Catherine, June 14-21.
