Featured aboard this cruise are the award-winning Rhône varietal wines of Paso Robles' Venteux Vineyards. Enjoy the unique opportunity to spend time with the owners and winemakers Scott and Bobbi Stelzle!

At Venteux Vineyards, the Goldenberg and Stelzle families are dedicated to producing exceptional wines. From soil to bottle, their hands-on approach allows them to uphold the highest level of care in all aspects of the winemaking process. Considered to be purists, Venteux Vineyards strives to perfect every wine they produce by using only wild native yeasts and filling every bottle with the finest varietals from select vineyards. Their farming and winemaking practices are 100% natural. Venteux's twenty-two acre vineyard property in the Templeton Gap is situated in a unique microclimate known for hot dry days and cool damp nights. Ideal for dry-farmed, head-trained vines, our estate produces intensely bold and flavorful Rhône varietals.

In addition to their estate-grown fruit, Venteux sources grapes from local vineyards throughout the Paso Robles AVA. They also travel as far south as Santa Barbara and as far north as Mendocino in order to purchase fruit from select vineyards that they find to be unique, impeccably maintained, and comparable to their own farming standards and expectations.
