Join top personalities from Robert Biale Vineyards, Ridge Vineyards and Cast Wines for a “Spotlight On Wine” and the world of Zinfandel. Sail roundtrip Tokyo for 14 nights as magical beauty and wonder permeate the ancient cultures and high-tech metropolises spread throughout Asia. Visit century old temples and pagodas and partake in the robust flavors peppered from Shanghai to Tokyo. The natural beauty surrounding you in this region will leave you breathless.

As a cruise guest booked through Food & Wine Trails, you’ll have exclusive access to private wine events both onboard and ashore with Bob & Wendy Biale, Mark Vernon and Jack & Ann Siefrick.  Look forward to intimate gatherings with your hosts and fellow F&WT travelers.  These pre-planned special events are not open to the entire ship.

Zinfandel Advocates & Producers (ZAP) will be hosting additional tasting seminars and a walkaround tasting for the entire ship, introducing all passengers aboard Regent Seven Seas Explorer to what makes the legendary Zinfandel grape so special and why it is the reason for building a members-only club for its biggest supporters.
