"Walla Walla, Washington" - not only is it fun to say, it's a wine region that excels in producing everything from Cabernet Sauvignon to Tempranillo to Melbec to Merlot to Syrah, thanks to its range of soils, elevation and micro-climates.

If you've been searching for the perfect wine cruise that provides the opportunity to perhaps learn a little, taste a lot and meet & mingle with like-minded wine enthusiasts,  this is your cruise!  Sailing through the Mediterranean aboard Oceania Cruises' newly refurbished SIRENA, you'll be joined by renowned author and Pacific Northwest wine expert Paul Gregutt presenting some of his favorite Walla Walla vintages from  Saviah Cellars, Seven Hills Winery, TERO Estates and Maison Bleue.  

                                                               



The cruise begins September 12, 2019 with an overnight in glitzy Monte Carlo, Monaco and continues on to France, Italy & Spain - that's four countries in 7-days!  Each day your luxury ship brings you to a new port city, from the rolling vineyards of Tuscany to chic seaside villages of France and hidden jewels in Spain, they're all yours to explore and discover.

Consider extending your cruise with Food & Wine Trails' optional 2-night pre-cruise Nice land package.  This private-to-the group program is a fun way to meet many of your fellow travelers  prior to embarking the ship.  And don't miss out on our optional wine-themed shore excursions where we will take you off-the-beaten-path to some of the most sought after wine estates for tours, tastings and wine-paired luncheons.

As your seasoned host, Paul looks forward to sharing vintages from Washington's top estates and vineyards with you during private onboard events.  To reserve you space on this incredible journey, contact Food & Wine Trails at 800-367-5348.
