Wine is the theme on Wind Surf”s seven day Yachtsman’s Caribbean cruise.
Award-winning Windstar Cruises, with a fleet of three luxury sailing yachts, will host Chris Figgins of Leonetti Cellar and Figgins Family Wine Estates aboard the 312-passenger Wind Surf on February 18, 2012.
This is an exciting opportunity to learn more about wine while cruising to smaller ports and lesser-known Caribbean islands. Guests will have the opportunity during the sailing to take part in a wine tasting, listen while Figgins conducts a lecture and a question and answer session.
Figgins is President and Winemaking Director for Figgins Family Wine Estates, which manages a collection of brands that thoughtfully extends the family’s passion for the finest wine and food experiences, producing some of the most sought after wines in the world with its Leonetti Cellar and FIGGINS brands. Each brand reflects the deep sense of place and connection to the land, staying true to the philosophy of maintaining exceptional quality by controlling the entire process from start to finish. In 1977, Leonetti Cellar became the first winery in Walla Walla, Washington.
Figgins continues a 30-plus year tradition with Leonetti of producing some the world’s most renowned reds in small, limited productions. He recently launched FIGGINS, an estate-grown, single-vineyard wine, and Lostine Cattle Company, an all natural grass-fed beef company, to extend the Figgins Family Wine Estates experience to fine food.
