After a vintage debut, SeaDream Yacht Club adds eight Wine Voyages to its 2015 calendar

The debut of SeaDream Yacht Club’s Wine Voyages in 2014 was such a success that eight vino-intensive voyages have been added to the 2015 season.

Showcasing the most picturesque yachting ports of the Mediterranean on five to nine-night sailings, each dedicated Wine Voyage provides guests with heightened wine experiences, including:

  • Sit-down tastings featuring wineries from regions visited
  • A Wine Master Class Tasting led by an internationally recognised wine exper
  • One tasting held by a top winemaker
  • SeaDream Wine Voyages
    Drinking fine wine is a major feature of cruising with SeaDream

    At an exclusive Winemaker’s Dinner taking place onboard, the chef will craft a special menu to match the wine of the winemaker joining for the evening.

    Together with SeaDream’s Wine Director Erica Landin, additional casual tastings are organised throughout sailings to highlight local producers or favourite wines from the SeaDream cellar.

    “The cuisine onboard SeaDream Yacht Club continues to receive rave reviews from past guests as our culinary team incorporates local ingredients of the ports we visit as only possible sailing with 112 guests,” said SeaDream president Bob Lepisto.

    “Our extensive 2015 Wine Voyages build on this tradition by pairing legendary vineyards with expert instructors and winemakers to develop a truly one-of-a-kind experience on land and sea.”

    SeaDream Wine Voyages add to the two yachts’ innovative culinary and beverage programme, which features the first and only full raw cuisine menu onboard, as well as showcasing delicacies from ports of call.

    Of particular appeal to UK travellers, SeaDream I’s seven night cruise on 8 August from Civitavecchia (Rome) to Dubrovnik will feature wine writer Anthony Rose of the The Independent and Decanter Magazine, who will take guests on a tasting tour of the Italian greats including super-Tuscans as well as mini-tastings of wine from regions passing including Sicily, Puglia and Manduria.

    Special Wine Land Adventures include a visit to Cantina Benanti with owner Antonio Benanti in Sicily and an intimate tour of Cantine Marisa Cuomo with Marisa Cuomo in Positano. Wine voyage fares from £3,500 per person based on double occupancy.
