Greetings from Hartford Family Winery and La Crema Winery,
We are thrilled at the possibility of you joining us on a ten day, luxurious Mediterranean food and wine cruise aboard Oceania Cruises’ ship, the Riviera. The Riviera will embark from Barcelona on September 8th, 2017 and return on the 18th of September. It will be a trip of memorable destinations and our family will be hosting some amazing tastings of Hartford Court and La Crema along with a dinner. Please join Jennifer, Hailey and me on this once in a lifetime trip.
The cruise alone will offer the chance to visit some of the most famous cities in Europe. After departing Barcelona, the Riviera will visit Valencia, and the Island of Mallorca in Spain; the Island of Malta; Sicily, Naples and Tuscany in Italy; the Principality of Monte Carlo; and Marseille in France. Optional pre-cruise tours of Barcelona and the Penedes Wine Region are offered as well as a visit to the Ornellaia Estate in Tuscany. The visit to Ornellaia will include a tasting of a 100 Point Ornellaia wine.
As for the tastings that I mentioned, the plan will be for you to enjoy our fantastic wines at on-board wine receptions, private parties, wine tastings, and a winemaker dinner. Additionally, during the cruise, we will be offering to host special scheduled guided tastings featuring only the wines of Hartford Court, and we will do the same with La Crema.
Don Hartford, Hartford Family Winery president and co-owner, will lead a seated guided tasting of seven Hartford Court Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs – including the 97 point Arrendell Vineyard, Russsian River Valley, Pinot Noir; 96 Point Fog Dance, Green Valley of the Russian River Valley, Pinot Noir; 96 Point Velvet Sisters Vineyard Anderson Valley, Pinot Noir; and 95 Point Seascape Vineyard, Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir; among others.
Jennifer and Hailey, two of the La Crema Winery owners, will conduct a seated guided tasting of five La Crema Wines. Each La Crema Wine will showcase a distinct wine region, including the Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast, Carneros, Anderson Valley and Arroyo Seco viticulture areas in California and the Willamette Valley viticulture area in Oregon. The tasting will consider key characteristics of each of the five wines tasted in the context of its region of origin and against the back drop of a spectacular photo montage of La Crema Vineyards.
In addition, for a limited number of guests we have organized a separate blind tasting of Hartford Court wines alongside wines from other highly respected Pinot Noir wine grape growing regions of the world, such as Burgundy, California, Oregon and New Zealand. It will be a blast to taste and discuss these wines and their vineyards.
We believe that our journey may truly be a once in a lifetime experience, and hope to see you on-board next summer.
