Join Winemaker Dave Guffy For a Luxurious Cruise
July 8-July 18, 2018 Lisbon To Barcelona
 
A spectacular ten-day cruise from Lisbon to Barcelona aboard the luxurious Oceania Cruise will be hosted by Hess Collection Director of Winemaking Dave Guffy, who will reach across his own 18-year career at the winery for his personal favorites, and dive deep into the winery cellar to share wines in special winemaker led tasting, private parties and a very special winemaker's dinner.  This vessel features distinctive open-seating restaurants with overall culinary programs designed by world-renowned and much beloved Master Chef Jacques Pépin.
 
The journey begins in Lisbon, and over ten days stops in notable historical cities in Spain before ending in Barcelona.  There are pre-cruise packages for this wine region, and optional wine focused shore excursions exclusive to this very elite group.
 
This tour de force will feature not just the elevated wines of The Hess Collection, but also special selections of Artezin as well, highlighting the best pairings possible: good wine, good food, good people.
 
Join Dave for what promises to be an adventure full of cherished memories.  Contact Food & Wine Trails today for reservations.
