Do you like cruising and wine? Well, come aboard! Join Burt Wolf from PBS and Lettuce Entertain You Wine Director Richard Hanauer as they set sail on the Crystal Serenity through the Mediterranean.
The cruise kicks off September 28, 2018 and doubles as Burt’s 80th birthday celebration and what better way to celebrate that with one of the world’s most respected sommeliers. This vino fueled cruise starts in Rome and ends in Marseille; with stops in Florence, Elba, Monte Carlo, and St. Tropez along the way.
While on the ship, Richard will be conducting exclusive wine tastings and classes on Italian and French wines, and Burt will be drinking and presiding as Master of the Revelers.
Here’s a sneak peak of a few wines Richard plans to pour while on-board.
While in Tuscany, drink as the Tuscans drink!
One of Richard’s personal favorite Southern Tuscan wines, Brunello di Montalcino is one of the greatest expressions of Sangiovese. If you want to check it out it out before setting sail, RPM Italian offers it by the glass.
If you prefer a fuller bodied, Cabernet-based wine, Bolgheri is for you. It comes from just south of Livorno in western Tuscany near the Tyrrhenian Sea and is also available at RPM Italian.
From the hills of Tuscany, you will set sail to the French Riviera where rosé is king.
Sip on Provençal Rosé, available at wine by the glass at RPM Steak, to get your taste buds ready!
Burt and Richard are excited to be your hosts this fall for a wine cruise of a lifetime. Oh and did we mention that while you are enjoying Italian and French wines, you are also raising funds for your local PBS station?
