Smugglers, friends, and new friends:
 
We've got a helluva trip planned to some of the most ancient wine regions on earth, and you’re all invited.
 
We’ll sail by night and play by day… starting in Greece, the second homeland of my right-hand man Bryan Toy. Bryan’s called in some favors to get us the red carpet treatment and access to the stuff no one else can get. We’re not talking retsina here— Greece has been making wine since 4500 BC, and history and culture make for wines that are a rare and special treat. Bryan’s also put together an optional 3-night, 2-day Greek wine adventure before the cruise to start your trip out right.
 
After Greece, we’ll hit Sicily and the Amalfi coast, then cruise north along the Italian Riviera and everything that goes with it… namely slow food, Super Tuscans and stunning landscape. Of course we’ve got day trips planned at the best wineries, including cult spots like Ornellaia.
 
One of our nights together we’ll take over the ship’s onboard steakhouse for a Smuggler-style dinner featuring the good stuff—library vintages from my personal stash. Bryan’s also cooking up a Greece vs Napa tasting which will be a helluva good time while were on board. Our trip ends in Monte Carlo for a final shot of decadence before you head home.  
 
Nothing says Smuggler like sailing the high seas. Bryan and I are looking forward to seeing you there.
