August West and Freeman Vineyard & Winery

Onboard Programs

A F&WT wine cruise is two programs rolled into one. You have all the onboard entertainment and creature-comforts of a deluxe cruise, plus a private-to-the-group, educational wine program with private parties, tastings, seminars and a winemaker's dinner.


Welcome Reception 
Gather with your hosts and fellow group members for an open-bar cocktail hour with passed hors d'oeuvres and wines poured by your hosting wineries. 

Seminar & Tastings
Ken & Akiko Freeman will be bringing a selection of their award-winning wines of August West and Freeman Vineyards to share with the group during two onboard seminar and wine tastings. Check back for more details closer to sailing date.

Winemakers' Dinner 
A gourmet, multi-course, wine-paired meal will be served in either Toscana or Jacques specialty restaurant. Each course will be paired with the wines from  August West Wines and Freeman Vineyard & Winery.
