Crystal Cruises recently announced a partnership with Wine Spectator magazine that will feature enhanced specialized programming for the 16-day “Savoring the Winelands” itinerary, departing on June 1, 2018.
Aboard Crystal’s fully customized Boeing 777, guests will journey to the world’s most celebrated wine regions and be treated to tasting and educational experiences, inspired by Wine Spectator magazine. Expert sommeliers and renowned wine lecturers will accompany guests on this exciting journey, and conduct numerous special tastings throughout the trip. Wine connoisseurs from the lauded publication have also guided the selection of wine estates to be visited in the storied regions of Bordeaux, Champagne/Paris, Tuscany, Mendoza, Santiago and Cape Town.
On board, wine lovers can expand their knowledge with sommelier-guided tasting sessions, as well as through certificate courses by Wine Spectator School. “Savoring the Winelands” in cooperation with Wine Spectator is the world’s only private jet tour offering expert-guided in-flight wine tastings in the comfort of an expansive, on-board lounge and Skye Cellar.
Throughout the journey, guests will have access to further wine discoveries with editions of the magazine’s tasting reviews aboard the aircraft, a dedicated Wine Spectator app on the personal iPad devices included on board, and additional tastings in the spacious tasting lounge. In flight, guests will enjoy the extraordinary amenities of the well-appointed private jet, including Michelin-inspired cuisine and the renowned vintages within the expansive Skye Cellar – which will be stocked with wines relevant to the specialized itinerary.
