Food & Wine Trails is proud to offer a trifecta of some of the most dynamic wineries from Sonoma’s famed Russian River Valley – Christopher Creek, Fritz Underground and Ketcham Estate!

All three wineries and their hosts are past partners with F&WT and we couldn’t be happier to have them join forces aboard Oceania Cruises’ elegant RIVIERA, bringing their incredible talent and vintages for you to sample during exclusive onboard events.

Join Dominic Foppoli, Clay Fritz, Allie Ketcham & Renee Graves for 10 days sailing among boutique ports and seaside villages in the Mediterranean between Rome and Monte Carlo. These experienced wine hosts are well versed in this part of the world and look forward to sharing some of their favorite destinations such as the lively beach and bar scene of Ibiza, Spain; the art, culture and incredible cuisine throughout Barcelona; and the fields of lavender of Provence – also the gateway to Chateauneuf-du-Pape.  In all you will discover five countries – Italy, Malta, Spain, France and Monaco!

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to sample hand selected vintages from all three wineries during private shipboard events that will include a welcome reception, seminar & tastings, everyone’s favorite – Winemaker’s Dinner – plus a casual wine hour gathering and a final farewell toast to wonderful memories and life-long friends.  And be sure to sign up for Food & Wine Trails’ optional wine-themed shore tours , where we will take you off the beaten path to some of the most sought after wineries for private tours, tastings and luncheons of local cuisine.
