What a year it has been for Winemaker Akiko Freeman! On April 11, 2024, Akiko and Ken had the honor of presenting their wines, 2022 Ryo-Fu West Sonoma Coast Chardonnay and the 2021 Akiko’s Cuvee West Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, during a luncheon at the State Department, hosted by Vice President Kamala Harris to celebrate the visit of Prime Minister Fumio Kishida of Japan.  In addition, Akiko Freeman was recently honored with the Green & White Medal for Agricultural Excellence, becoming the first woman ever to receive this prestigious accolade, and being the first Japanese winemaker with a wine served at the White House

How lucky for us to partner with such a prestigious winery for an incredible cruise to paradise!  You’re invited to spend a week with Ken & Akiko and fellow Freeman Vineyard & Winery enthusiasts as your Windstar elegant yacht featuring all-suite accommodations, visits the ethereal landscapes of Tahiti. On your French Polynesia cruise, you’ll sail in startlingly beautiful turquoise seas past lush greenery and mysterious dark peaks, experiencing some of the most impressive fiery sunsets you’ve ever seen.  Swim, snorkel or kayak right from the ship’s Watersports Platform – it’s the perfect way to take in these unforgettable sights. Your cruise visits six spectacular islands, from the moment you are greeted with a colorful flower lei, Tahiti will take your breath away.

Your itinerary brings you to romantic Bora Bora, with its legendary white-sand beaches, as well as such low-key places as Huahine where you may view archaeological sites and mingle with locals in quaint villages. A visit to a private motu (tiny islet) assures a perfect day at the beach in paradise. Overnight visits to Bora Bora and Raiatea allow time to immerse yourself in the local culture. Learn to tie a pareo (dyed cloth worn as clothing) and sample Polynesian cuisine. Windstar’s Destination Discovery Signature Beach Party features an extravagant barbecue and a rare and dazzling performance of Polynesian fire dancing.

Look forward to private onboard events with your hosts pouring some of their favorite Freeman Vineyard wines. The combination of exquisite Freeman wines, private events, gracious hosts and a Windstar Tahiti cruise are sure to create memories of a lifetime.
