Greetings!

I am excited for Davis Family Vineyards 20th Anniversary and our partnership with Food & Wine Trails to produce an Eastern Mediterranean wine cruise in October 2017. I'll host a group of club members and friends of the winery aboard Oceania Cruises' Marina for an incredible 10-days cruising from Athens to Rome. Along the way we will sip, swirl, and savor some amazing wines all while enjoying the decadent sights, sounds, and flavors of the Mediterranean.  

During the cruise I'll host exclusive gatherings, seminars and a multi-course winemaker's dinner. At these events, I'll share with you a selection of our wines recently awarded 90-93 pts. from Wine Enthusiast, as well as a few surprises from our cellar. Then, in three ports of call, our travel partner, Food & Wine Trails, has created optional excursions for us with wine estate tours, tastings and private wine-paired lunches. Plus, before the cruise even departs, you can meet some of your fellow cruisers in Athens two days early with a full day tour of the Nemea wine region. 

I hope that you will join me on what promises to be an incredible journey. Together we'll share more than a few bottles of fabulous wine, meet some new friends, and create some life-long memories. I look forward to raising a glass with you in the Med and toasting our next 20 years!

Cheers!
Guy Davis
Founder / Farmer / Winemaker
