Greetings Members and Friends of the Wineries,

Get ready to double your fun with Arista Winery and Mauritson Family Wines for a truly unique 10-day Western Europe cruise from June 6 - 16, 2018. Winery owners, Mark & Jennifer McWilliams, Clay & Carrie Mauritson want to personally invite you to join them for what will be an unforgettable adventure to some of Europe’s most famed and romantic cities.  Along the way you’ll enjoy exclusive gatherings, seminars and an multi-course dinner paired with the wines of Arista and Mauritson.  You will also have the opportunity to share their new releases, preview upcoming vintages, and enjoy hand-picked library selections. 
 
Together we'll explore some of the most picturesque wine regions.  The 10-day cruise will depart in Barcelona and make stops in France, Italy, Spain and Portugal.  Food & Wine Trails has created a collection of not to be missed optional excursions to several famed wineries for private tours, tastings, and luncheons. These excursions are only for our group and in many cases are only available because of our relationships. 

Because of the itinerary and on-shore excursions, space will be limited so we encourage you to book quickly. Please feel free to invite a couple or two as well. This is a perfect way to introduce your wine savvy friends to Arista  and Mauritson while enjoying the best food, wine, and culture Europe has to offer. We sincerely hope that you’ll consider joining us for this unforgettable experience!
 
We look forward to hanging out with you on the Mediterranean next summer!
 
Cheers,
 
Mark McWilliams & Clay Mauritson
