SeaDream Yacht Club has announced seven new Wine Voyages for its 2017 season. 

The seven- to eleven-day sailings will visit ports in the Mediterranean and offer special wine-themed excursions. 

Guests onboard the wine sailings will get a chance to enjoy tastings from celebrated wineries such as Château Gassier, Tenuta San Guido, and Taittinger Champagne. As an exclusive to the Taittinger Voyage, Clovis Taittinger will be onboard, followed by Maison Louis Jadot showcasing champagne and the Burgundy region. At the Winemaker’s Dinner, SeaDream’s Executive Chef will prepare a distinctive menu to complement and enhance the wines of guest winemakers, such as Philipp Wittman, Marilisa Allegrini, and Francesco Mazzei. The Winemaker’s Dinner offers a wine-by-the-glass package, for an additional cost.
