Onboard Programs

A F&WT wine cruise is two programs rolled into one. You have all the onboard entertainment and creature-comforts of a deluxe cruise, plus a private-to-the-group, educational wine program with private parties, tastings, seminars and a winemaker's dinner.




Welcome Reception on April 9th
6:30 - 7:30 PM  
Gather with your hosts and fellow group members for an open-bar cocktail hour with passed hors d'oeuvres.


Seminar & Tasting on April 14th 
2:00 - 4:00 PM 

In honor of special guests, Russian River growers Randy & Robin Peters, we will treat our guests to a 5 year vertical of the Peters Pinot to demonstrate the differences between various vintages and  how the wines age and change over time.

We have been working with the Peters since 2000 and not only do we love their grapes, they are a fantastic couple. The Peters Vineyard Pinot Noir is a wine club favorite and first to sell out every year.


Casual Wine Hour on April 15th
5:00 - 6:00 PM 




Winemaker's Dinner on April 18th
6:30 PM 
A gourmet, multi-course, wine-paired meal will be served in one of Sirena's specialty gourmet restaurants.  Each course will be expertly paired with wines from Papapietro Perry



Casual Wine Hour / Farewell Party on April 22nd
6:00 - 7:00 PM 
Join Ben, Yolanda, Bruce, Renae, Randy, and Robin for a glass of wine before dinner.
