June Wine in the Wind: A Tour of Bordeaux

June 5, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Wine in the Wind Cheese and Bread Display

Join us for a three hour sail around the Bay sampling wonderful wines: A tour of Bordeaux with Patrick De Abreu.  This representative from the winery will introduce you to these special wines. The cruise will be a relaxing sail including 3-oz samples of each of the four wines featured. Along with each wine is a delicious, perfectly paired bite (we call them magnificent morsels) to go with each wine.  After the sampling, there will be a small afternoon appetizer buffet that will pair well with any wines you would like to purchase by the glass to enjoy on the rest of your sail.  Includes a take-home, boat friendly, wine glass by Go Vino with the Woodwind’s logo on it. Depart Annapolis at 2:00pm, return at 5:00pm.

Price: $109 per person. Maximum 35 guests.
