Oceania Cruises' Sirena


Dear Friends of Papapietro Perry Winery:
It is our pleasure to invite you to join us on a spectacular adventure to Australia & New Zealand aboard Oceania’s Cruise ship, the Sirena. Setting sail on April 9, 2017, this will be an unforgettable experience developed by Food & Wine Trails and hosted by owners, Ben and Yolanda Papapietro and Bruce and Renae Perry. We will be joined by Russian River Valley vineyard owners and growers, Randy and Robin Peters, of our well known Mukaida and Peters Vineyard. Together we’ll embark in Sydney, Australia on a fourteen-day journey of great wine, food and travel. You will find yourselves mesmerized by the big, bold, brawny spirit of Australia and awestruck by the mystical land of New Zealand.
Experience the wines of these two countries and spend leisurely days at sea, including cruising the dramatic fjords of Milford Sound, a special gourmet wine dinner hosted by the Papapietros and the Perrys, a group seminar, in depth wine tastings and private get togethers along the way.
There is simply no better way to explore Australia and New Zealand than aboard the elegant Oceania Cruisers' Sirena. You will have a spectacular experience and memories of a lifetime. To book your stateroom or suite contact our exclusive travel partner, Food & Wine Trails, at (800) 367-5348.
