DESTINATION: CHILE (19 May 2016)
Sail with us across the Pacific Ocean and cruise along over 3000 kilometres of Chilean coastline. Stretching from the dry and arid Atacama dessert in the North, to the sub-polar ice fields down South, Chile offers a wide variety of sub climates which influence the style of wine produced in each region.
The voyage begins at 7pm with a reception of chips and canapes. Move around the deck with a glass in hand and get to know your fellow voyagers - trust us, wine is more fun with friends! At 7.15pm, shortly after setting sail, our invited guest wine specialist Ms Akimi Yeo will deliver a short presentation on the wines of the evening, as well as interesting facts and trivia about the regions from which they hail. Thereafter, continue to mingle around and sip on the day's wines, or chat up our team of wine specialists and aficionados present, who will be more than glad to share with you their passion and insights on the wonderful world of wine.
For this voyage, we will be exclusively featuring wines by LUIS FELIPE EDWARDS, the largest 100% family-owned winery in Chile, dating back to 1976.
