Food & Wine Trails welcomes Harmony Cellars in 2020! 

Located in the tiny artisan town of Harmony along the Central Coast of California, proprietors Chuck & Kim Mulligan are celebrating Harmony Cellars 30th anniversary.  Winemaker Chuck produces award-wining wines that reflect quality and attention to detail. He strives to make something for every palate, from buttery Chardonnays, spicy Zins, voluptuous Cabernets and even a Port!  You can look forward to a variety of Harmony Cellars vintages during private shipboard events including a seminar & tasting and winemaker's dinner.

Join Chuck & Kim on a cruise to one of Europe's hottest travel destinations - Croatia - renowned for its scenic blue bays, spectacular beaches and medieval architecture.  But what really sets Croatia apart is its unique folk culture with a modern emphasis on local food and drink (yes, wine!), music and nightlife.  Explore five Croatian destinations where stunning architecture, cultural and historic monuments, excellent museums and delicious seafood await. A late-night stay is perfect for exploring Split's Diocletian Palace and the great walled city of Dubrovnik - both UNESCO World Heritage Sites - while still giving you enough time to discover local flavors.  While in Hvar, considered one of the top winemaking regions in Croatia, enjoy a glass of "Posip", a crisp white wine indigenous to the region.  You'll have unobstructed views of wooded islands and rocky coasts aboard Azamara's 690-guest ship Quest.  

Need more reasons to love this voyage?  It conveniently begins in Venice, ideal for Food & Wine Trails optional 2-night pre-cruise Verona land program exploring the beautiful Valpolicella wine region known for producing one of Italy's most prestigious red wines - Amarone.  

We are excited to partner with Harmony Cellars and offer such a unique wine cruise itinerary.  For reservations, contact Food & Wine Trails at 800-367-5348.
