Food & Wine Trails is extremely excited to welcome back AldenAlli and Red Stitch as your wine hosts for their 2nd Wine Cruise. Together these powerhouses will join forces for a 11-day epicurean and wine adventure through the some of Southern Europe’s most iconic cities in Portugal, Spain, Morocco, United Kingdom, France and Italy.

After a very successful South Pacific cruise in January of 2020, Dan and Katie Kosta of AldenAlli winery along with Rich Aurilia (former SF Giants Hall of Famer) and Amy of Red Stitch are thrilled to be your congenial cruise hosts. These two couples are not only great friends, but are also devoted wine enthusiasts.

As you can imagine, traveling with your congenial hosts is a wine/food/sports lover’s dream come true! Food & Wine Trails has put together a robust program that lives up to their talents and passions. Our optional 2-night  pre-cruise program has been curated exclusively for guests of AldenAlli & Red Stitch and explores Lisbon and the nearby Portuguese DOC winemaking district of Alenquer. In addition, optional wine-themed shore tours are planned during the cruise, where we will take you off the beaten path and to some of the most sought after wineries and vineyards for private tours, tastings and wine-paired lunches.

While onboard the beautiful Riviera, join your hosts for private events including a welcome reception, seminars & tastings and a winemaker’s dinner featuring hand-selected vintages from AldenAlli and Red Stitch.
