Dear Ideology & Napa Valley Cab Fans -
You are invited to join Bob/Armando Williamson, proprietor of Ideology Cellars and his wife Joni for an unforgettable fall foliage cruise aboard Oceania Cruises' Insignia for an 10-day adventure from Montreal to New York! 
In 2017, we are staying closer to home to do an itinerary that I have always wanted to do with a group of wine lovers - a Fall Foliage cruise. The East Coast is beautiful in the fall and we are in store to see some incredible and colorful scenery. These itineraries sell out every year, but Food & Wine Trails was able to grab us a nice block of cabins and we plan to fill every one of them!
We've decided to do something different for this cruise. In addition to the onboard wine events featuring the wines of Idelology, we're planning a special Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon tasting of some of Armando's favorite cabs from some of our neighboring wineries. 2013 was a good year in the Napa Valley and I'll pull bottles out of my cellar from that year from wineries such as Duckhorn, Spottswoode, Joseph Phelps, Chateau Montelena, and Robert Mondavi. So even if you are not familiar with the wines of Ideology, but you love Napa Valley Cabs the way I do, then this is the vacation for you.  
We look forward to seeing friends from our past cruises along with meeting some new ones. Armando can't wait to raise a glass with you next fall on Insignia!
Bob/Armando & Joni Williamson
