Celebrity Cruises 'Wine Show'
Cruising offers the chance to kick back and enjoy a glass or two of wine from the world’s best vineyards. On board Celebrity Cruises this summer there’s the chance to become a connoisseur. With an innovative and enjoyable format, the cruise line has developed a limited edition, interactive wine tasting experience in partnership with the renowned TV series ‘The Wine Show’. The show’s two hosts – Joe Fattorini and Amelia Singer – have devised a novel concept that combines film and wine to deliver a sensory adventure that educates viewers to appreciate some of the most interesting wines in the world.
Once on-board, guests get to embark on their own wine-tasting journey with a specially produced film accessed via the in-stateroom television channel before relaxing and savouring some great wines. The accompanying film showcases beautifully-shot footage and interviews with leading wine producers, enabling guests to feel they are in some of the great vineyards of the world, while all the time learning more about each wine and its journey from grape to glass.
This novel wine tasting experience includes a collection of four specially-selected wines for guests to sample as well as tasting notes. Footage shown in the films features the accomplished actors Matthew Rhys and Matthew Goode. The co-stars of the series undertake their own vineyard adventure and bring the experience to life in the privacy of guests own staterooms. The wines available to sample in 187ml bottles are: Louis Jadot Pouilly Fuisse from France; Garage Wine Company Old Vine Carignan from Chile; Chateau Tanunda from Australia; and Pieropan Soave Classico from Italy. The tasting experience costs $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, 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. Amelia Singer will also be on Celebrity Reflection for a similar cruise departing on 9 October.
Always the innovator, Celebrity Cruises is a perennially popular choice for passengers who appreciate the company’s take on ‘Modern Luxury’. Without doubt Celebrity Reflection is pitch-perfect with its ground-breaking design as well as truly remarkable speciality dining options. Now the company’s well-earned reputation for serving fine wines in venues such as Cellar Masters has been enhanced with the partnership with ‘The Wine Show’.
