A new, exquisite experience awaits travellers as Oceania Cruises, the vanguard in culinary- and destination-focused voyages, launches an unrivalled collection of 80 rare, hand-selected wines, elevating their gourmet offerings to an unprecedented scale.
Marking a new chapter in the cruising world, this venture expands the line’s extensive wine repertoire and provides passengers with an unparalleled wine-dining experience across their entire fleet. Oceania Cruises’ sommeliers have meticulously curated a broad spectrum of vintages from celebrated vineyards across Italy, France, South America, and beyond, promising to captivate the senses of both seasoned oenophiles and wine novices alike.
The collection, meticulously put together over a six to eight-month period, boasts a tapestry of remarkable wines such as the legendary Moët & Chandon Cuvée Dom Pérignon from Epernay, France; the renowned Château Mouton Rothschild, 1er Cru Classe from Pauillac, France; the elusive Mascot from Napa Valley, California; and the up-and-coming Vina Errazuriz Kai Carmenère from Aconcagua Valley, Chile. All these and more are available across the fleet in settings ranging from intimate suites to bustling bars and exquisite restaurants.
