Take a Wine-Tasting Tour While Yachting
Just think of it, the world of opulence and leisure: You're on a luxury yacht. You're sailing the ocean blue, not a care in the world. You're being served a taste of different varietals of fine wines by waiters wearing white gloves and tuxedos with tails. You're catching the scintillating scent of fresh sea air from your overstuffed chaise lounge on the yacht's deck. Strawberries dipped in chocolate and truffles glide by on gleaming sterling-silver trays.
And guess what? It's not a dream! This can really happen to you! A wine-tasting tour on a luxury yacht is one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities any true wine connoisseur surely wouldn't want to pass up.
From the bright, sensuously sweet taste of chardonnay to a fuller cabernet blanc (for white wine aficionados) to a full-bodied, cherry-and-oak flavored merlot or pinot noir (for those who favor the "reds,"), you'll enjoy sailing while dreamily sipping succulent wines on a special wine-tasting yacht tour set up to make you feel freshly pampered and safe.
Your yacht captain and crew will be fully trained in specialty tours like this one, and they'll be on hand to cater to your every whim, allowing you to sample wines from all over the world, testing your taste buds to the limit. You'll also learn how different varietals are made, processed, and stored until they reach their best-aged perfection. The delicacy of wine-making will be an education from start to finish, usually complete with a tour through the yacht's wine cellar.
Usually, parties of 20 to 50 guests are on board most yachts specializing in wine-tasting, and you can be sure your meals will be well-coordinated to "match" the wine offerings.
The only questions you need bother answering are "where and when" you want to take your wine-tasting yachting trip. The Baltic, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean will definitely beckon, while some will want to stay closer to home base, just off the California coast.
For anyone who's ever wanted to book a decadent, theme-packed cruise on a luxury yacht, this just skims the surface of all the indulgent experiences you'll remember for years to come - and you'll likely make several friends who are along for the ride!
