Vintage cruising: SeaDream Yacht Club announces new wine voyages for 2014

SeaDream Yacht Club has revealed details of four new wine voyages in 2014 that will appeal to both beginners and seasoned wine lovers.

SeaDream I and II will sail the Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines on three Wine Voyages, visiting the most exclusive harbours in Italy, Spain and Portugal’s renowned wine country.

Each voyage will offer heightened experiences for beginners and veteran oenophiles with itineraries that have been expertly developed by SeaDream’s Wine Director, Erica Landin, one of Sweden’s most internationally recognised wine writers.

Activities during the voyages include visits to high-quality vineyards in the world’s most exclusive wine destinations; informal and formal tastings of local varietals; wine master classes and a special Winemaker’s Dinner, in which a local grower or winery owner shares treasures from their own cellars.

A special Wine Education Voyage will take place during a 12-day transatlantic crossing from Lisbon to San Juan. This will start with a visit to Portugal’s oldest table-wine winery. The itinerary includes in-depth lectures, tastings and discussions with experts and special guest winemaker, Dorli Muhr.

The cruises take place between 20 September and 8 November, offering experiences that also showcase local delicacies from ports of call.

SeaDream recently introduced a new Scandinavian menu for summer 2014 Northern Europe voyages that features reindeer, moose and fish caught from local fisherman daily.

“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,” says SeaDream’s UK managing director, Andy Magowan.

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