Spotlight on Red, White and the Blues
Raise your glasses and tap your heels!
Many wine lovers appreciate their special "oldies," beautifully aged bottles in pristine condition. On this voyage, we do have plenty of nicely aged wine, but oldies of a different sort as well when we welcome the pop band "Private Reserve" aboard Seven Seas Mariner. Private Reserve is a band started by Napa Valley winemaker Mike Martini long ago. All the players are wine makers and wine industry insiders, some of the top wine people in California, including Mike Martini and Ed Sbragia of Beringer Vineyards on guitars, wine consultant Steve Buehl on keyboards, wine industry attorney John Hawkins on bass and on drums is George Bursick, winemaker at Sonoma's J Winery. Together, the band will play two concerts of hits from the 1970s and 1980s during this scenery-filled cruise, and individually each of our wine experts will offer a tasting of their favorite wines. It's certainly an easy cruise on which to raise a glass to California's dazzling wine stars - red, white and the blues.
One part age; three parts liquor!
