Hello Old Friends, And New Friends To Come
Nearly four decades ago Donald Hess began a wine journey high atop Mount Veeder in Napa and for those with a yearning for discovery and adventure, well, come join me in June, 2014 as we cruise the Mediterranean and explore terroir wines from four continents. It has been my great privilege to be part of this adventure from the beginning, and for this very special Rome to Rome cruise I’ve selected exceptional wines from our portfolio of wineries from Napa and Sonoma, South Africa, Australia and Argentina.
It’s fitting that we’ll sail aboard Oceana’s Riviera, launched just a year ago, one of the most beautiful, elegant and sophisticated ships to debut in the past 50 years. Join me for a big bottle extravaganza, with selections from our library, each with a memorable vintage story. We’ll share insights in wines that hail from vineyards more than a mile above the Calchaquí Valley floor in Argentina, reaching for the stars. Our onboard tastings and winemaker dinners won’t be limited just to vertical or appellations, but in wines that represent the very best of winemaking countries from the new world, including Glen Carlou, Colomé, Amalaya and Peter Lehmann. Not to be out-done, we’ll share gems not just from The Hess Collection, but from Artezin and MacPhail Family Wines. There will be plenty of stories to share.
I can hardly wait, can you? Let’s plan on making memories together next summer.
In Vino Veritas,
Winemaker, Hess Family Wine Estates
