We’re excited to be returning to the Mediterranean in the summer of 2019 to host a Mediterranean cruise aboard the wonderful Oceania ship Sirena. Executive Winemaker Neil Collins, with his wife Marci, and Assistant Winemaker Craig Hamm, with his partner Annika, will host this 13-day experience that begins June 16th with a pre-cruise program in Avignon (including a behind-the-scenes visit to Chateau de Beaucastel and the Perrins' new properties in Gigondas, with a gourmet lunch prepared by Beaucastel’s Michelin-starred chef Laurent Deconick) before embarking in Monte Carlo on June 18th. The cruise will continue down the Italian coast, make stops in Corsica and Sardinia, cross the Mediterranean and proceed up the Spanish coast, disembarking in Barcelona on June 28th.
Throughout the trip, we will be offering Tablas Creek and Famille Perrin wines with meals, exploring connections with local food and wine culture, and sharing our perspectives and experiences.
Our travel partner Food & Wine Trails makes sure that the shore excursions are memorable and the food and amenities are top notch. The itinerary and event details are at foodandwinetrails.com/tablascreek2019.
