Dear Friends,
 
I invite you to join me for the trip of a lifetime, the V. Sattui’s 2015 President’s Cruise. Our third winery cruise will sail June 1 – 16, 2015, aboard Oceania Cruises’ newest ship, the Riviera.  We will depart from Rome and visit some of the most amazing sites of Ancient Empires in Greece, Israel, Egypt, Malta, Tunisia and Italy …revelling in the exotic tastes, sites, sounds, smells, foods and wines of these wonderful lands.  Of course, there will be plenty of V. Sattui wines to enjoy aboard the cruise too!
 
You will not want to miss this incredible V. Sattui Winery customer appreciation cruise. We hosted over 100 guests on each of our last two cruises and both sold out very quickly.  In addition to visiting these spectacular ports of call, V. Sattui will host exclusive private events aboard the Riviera for our guests including welcome and casual wine parties, wine seminars and tastings, our winemaker’s dinner featuring vintage magnums and large format bottles in one of the ship’s specialty restaurants.
 
Our V. Sattui Winery pre-cruise package and shore tours are always very popular and offer experiences designed exclusively for our customers.   Join me before we set sail for a two night pre-cruise package featuring a Taste of Rome and the Food and Wine of Umbria.  Plus we are offering an exclusive shore tour of famous wineries and sights in Sicily, as well as our own V. Sattui Winery shore tours highlighting Jerusalem and the Golan wine region in Israel.   There will be an exclusive overnight shore excursion in Cairo, the glorious capital of Egypt.  We hope this will allow more time for our guests to see the wonders of ancient Egypt and also experience the sights and sounds of modern day Cairo.
 
I hope you will join me and our winemaker, Brooks Painter, named Winemaker of the Year in 2013, on this cruise as we share our best wines and sought-after vintages with you while we visit some of the most incredible sites in the world. This vacation offers something for everyone: the wine aficionado, the food enthusiast, the photographer and the historian in all of us.   As our 2011 and 2013 cruises sold out, I encourage you to book your space today for this fantastic voyage.
 
Here’s to taking our picture in front of the Great Pyramid with a bottle of V. Sattui Wine!
