Guests of Fritz and Ketcham’s were so enamored with the 2023 summer cruise to Israel and Egypt, the question that kept coming up over and over again was “where are we going next”?  We are thrilled to offer their next hosted wine cruise from Venice to Rome for 10-days aboard Oceania’s fabulous Riviera in 2024.

Join fellow wine enthusiasts and your congenial Fritz Underground and Ketcham Estate winery hosts in the fall when the crowds of tourists have subsided and the temperatures are mild, from the “Floating City” of Venice and explore the medieval villages along Croatia’s coastline to the prehistoric temples on Malta.  Say OPA! to the glorious Greek ports of Corfu & Katakolon before surrendering yourself to stunning views of Mt. Etna from Sicily and the fascinating ruins of Pompeii outside of Sorrento before arriving in your final destination of ancient Rome.

Save the dates for F&WT’s optional pre-cruise land program in Slovenia and Venice plus curated wine-themed shore tours in select ports, always a highlight of our wine cruises.
