Dear Wine Enthusiast,
 
Next summer, Zaca Mesa will be hosting a 10-night Lisbon to Rome cruise that visits well-known cities and wineries in Portugal, Spain, France, and Italy. 

Our ship is Oceania Cruises' 1250-guest Riviera. This mid-sized luxury ship was purposely built for the wine and food lover and features cuisine overseen by famed chef Jacques Pépin, six no-extra charge gourmet restaurants, a hands-on culinary classroom, and a 26-seat restaurant sponsored by Wine Spectator where you can pair eight-course with specially chosen 90 point wines. 

During the cruise, winemaker Kristin Bryden and brand ambassador Dane Campbell will oversee exclusive gatherings, seminars, and a multi-course winemaker's dinner. At these events, they will share with you a very special selection of wines from our cellar. In addition, our travel partner Food & Wine Trails, has created two optional excursions including a very exciting visit to Ornellaia in the Super-Tuscan region of Tuscany.

Those that want to extend, you can spend two overnight before the cruise begins in Lisbon and recuperate from your flight, explore the Alenquer wine region, enjoy wine tasting and lunch at Chocapalha Wine Estate and meet some of your fellow cruisers. 

Please join us on what promises to be an incredible journey. Together we'll share more than a few bottles of fabulous wine, meet some new friends, and create some life-long memories.
