Chateau Montelena 2011 Alaskan Adventure Wine Cruise

No Gravatar

Recently I was extremely fortunate to represent Chateau Montelena Winery along with our winemaker, Cameron Parry, on our most recent wine cruise.   We sailed the inside passage of Alaska from June 25th through July 6th, starting in Anchorage and ending in Vancouver, Canada.   We along with our 50 guests, some of which are CellarMaster club members, spent some wonderful time getting to know one another during our wine seminars, receptions and dinner.  My next few blog entries will be postings of this adventure along with photos of the scenery, the events and our wonderful guests.     

I hope you enjoy the entries and maybe I will see you on our next cruise in 2013?

No trick photography here. The iceberg calves are really that color.

A sample of some of the yummy Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon we poured, (1994, 1996, 1998, 2000).
