We are pleased to announce our fifth wine cruise with O'Brien Estate.  In 2018 Barb and Bart are keeping it close to home, but you'll feel oh so far away as you explore the wilds of Alaska in luxurious comfort aboard Oceania Cruises' 684-guest Regatta.   

Get the camera charged and binoculars ready as you'll witness spectacular wildlife, calving glaciers, deep fjords, snow-clad mountains and quaint seaside towns beaming with culture and pride of North America's Last Frontier.  Our 7-night journey begins in the emerald city of Seattle, where you have the option of arriving 2 days early for an exclusive Food & Wine Trails pre-cruise package.   Critic and reviewer for Wine Enthusiast and other publications. Paul Gregutt will be your guide for an insider's tour of the Washington wine regions.  Paul will pour hand selected wines from the region during a private welcome dinner at the hotel - a great way to meet your fellow travelers.

Onboard the Regatta enjoy gourmet cuisine and splendid wine from the cellars of O'Brien Estate during receptions, seminars & tastings and everyone's favorite - the winemaker's dinner in one of the ships' exquisite specialty restaurants. 

Alaska wine cruises are far and few between, in fact our 2017 cruise sold out in record time! So don't be disappointed - contact Food & Wine Trails today at 800-367-5348 and reserve your favorite stateroom or suite.

Bon Voyage!
