Windstar Announces 2nd Culinary & Wine Cruise

Windstar Cruises has announced a second food and wine sailing that will take place next November, sailing from Barcelona, Spain to Lisbon, Portugal.

The sailing will call in Sóller, Valencia, Cartagena, Almería, Málaga, and Cádiz, ending in Lisbon, Portugal aboard Windstar’s Wind Surf. The sailing will be hosted by  Stephen Metzler and Almudena de Llaguno, founders of Classical Wines, America’s most respected importers of Spanish wines. The sailing will offer guests two special dinners featuring Spanish food and wine pairings, six complimentary Spanish wines, two complimentary local vineyard and culinary excursions, and a special onboard flamenco dance performance.

“Our guests have expressed strong interest in culinary and wine themed cruises. In fact, our first such voyage, Culinary & Wine Delights of Spain, sold out so quickly we are offering this second voyage by popular demand,” said Hans Birkholz, Windstar Cruises’ chief executive officer. “Culinary & Wine Delights of Spain II allows food and wine enthusiasts to experience the local flavor of Spanish cuisine and wine while exploring its culture and traditions in Windstar’s signature small ship style.”
