This cruise is a perfect opportunity for those who love both wine and lengthy sea days to get away and relax as they make the classic TransAtlantic crossing from Lisbon to New York. Join Jim and enjoy tasting a wide sampling of top-quality wines, all hand-picked by Jim himself.
This cruise will feature 25 100-point wines, as rated by critics at Wine Spectator, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, Jeb Dunnuck, or Antonio Galloni.
This will offer a rare opportunity to experience this many "perfect" wines of many different styles, all together. Though the whole idea of a perfect wine is probably laughable, it is immensely interesting to compare our opinions on these wines with the professional critics.
There will be three wine dinners, each featuring seven 100 point wines each from different areas of the world, paired to the food being served. Wines will range from white and red table wines to champagne and vintage ports and Madeira.
An afternoon gala champagne and caviar tasting will feature four 99-100 point champagnes and 3 or 4 distinctly different styles of caviar.
