Celebrity Cruises ‘wine show’

This summer there’s the chance to sit back, relax and enjoy a glass of wine from the world’s best vineyards aboard Celebrity Cruises. Always the innovator, this company is a perennially popular choice for passengers who appreciate the company’s take on ‘Modern Luxury’. The cruise line has now developed a limited edition, interactive wine tasting experience in partnership with the acclaimed TV series ‘The Wine Show’. The show’s two presenters – Joe Fattorini and Amelia Singer – take guests on a journey to discover the stories behind some of the world’s great vineyards and winemakers. Fusing film and wine, the sensory adventure educates viewers about some of the world’s most interesting wines.

Guests on-board embark on their own wine-tasting journey with a specially produced film accessed via the in-stateroom television channel before sitting back, relaxing and savouring some great wines. The accompanying film showcases inspirational footage and interviews with leading wine producers, enabling guests to travel to vineyards across the globe and learn more about each wine and its journey from grape to glass.

The wine tasting experience includes a collection of four specially-selected wines for guests to sample, along with tasting notes. Footage shown in the films features the famous co-stars of the series Matthew Rhys and Matthew Goode as they undertake their own vineyard adventure. The wines available to sample in 187ml bottles are: Garage Wine Company Old Vine Carignan from Chile; Chateau Tanunda from Australia; Pieropan Soave Classico from Italy; and Louis Jadot Pouilly Fuisse from France. The in-stateroom wine tasting experience is priced at $59 for two people.

As part of Celebrity Cruises partnership with ‘The Wine Show’, during September and October 2017, Joe Fattorini and Amelia Singer will be on board selected sailings and will host a series of educational and interactive tasting experiences, including exclusive vineyard visits. Joe Fattorini will join the 11-night ‘Best of the Western Mediterranean’ fly/cruise on board Celebrity Reflection on 11 September; while Amelia Singer will be on the same ship for a similar cruise departing on 9 October.
