Exclusive Wine Cruise


Hosted by Tony & Christine Lombardi, Owners, Lombardi Wines, Petaluma, CA

Tony grew up in Sonoma County and his first job in wine came in 1998 when he joined the hospitality team at Clos Du Bois Winery, located in Geyserville, California. In 2001, he joined the public relations team at Clos Du Bois’ parent company, Allied Domecq Wines. From there he joined the team at Kosta Browne Winery as its Brand and Public Relations Director in 2010. Tony founded Lombardi Wines in 2013, in a pursuit to honor his family’s rich history of wine, food and tradition. Lombardi Wines crafts small lots of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from some of the finest vineyards in the Sonoma Coast, and are born from Passion, Inspiration and Family.


Hosted by Cabell Coursey, Co-owner, Coursey Graves Winery, Santa Rosa CA

Cabell’s obsession with winemaking began with a harvest in Burgundy while he was enjoying an undergraduate semester abroad. After finishing his B.S., Cabell moved up to Oregon’s Willamette Valley than traveled to Christchurch, New Zealand, where he earned degrees in Enology and Viticulture from Lincoln University. In 2017, Cabell launched his own winery and brand with partner, John Graves high above the Bennett Valley in Sonoma County … Coursey Graves. Cabell describes his philosophy: “My goal is always the same, to deliver each vineyard’s best expression in each vintage and to make a wine where the last glass is better than the first.”

About the Wine Region – The Rhine

The Rhine along with its main tributaries—the Moselle and Main—have created a wine connoisseur’s paradise, which can be discovered on our Europe’s Rivers & Castles, Enchanting Rhine, Captivating Rhine and Rhine & Moselle Splendors itineraries.

The Upper Middle Rhine’s slate soil combined with a semi-continental climate have proven to be a recipe for wine-growing success for the Rheingau vineyards, yielding high-quality white wine varieties, and some fine reds.
