About the Wine Voyage Activities
Taste and Traditions of Montenegro
Experience the stunning scenery, the cultures and traditions of Montenegro. When arriving the alluring Lustica Peninsula, known for its ancient olive groves,
stone fishing villages, secret hideaways and golden, sandy beaches we will visit one of these ancient olive groves that has been tended by the Moric family for centuries. The Moric Family will share their knowledge of olive cultivation and of course a proper olive oil tasting followed by a diversity of homemade food and local wine to complement. A beautiful day in the very picturesque villages of Montenegro.
Visit to Benanti, Mt. Etna
The Benanti family estate was founded in the late 1800’s, but it was Dr. Giuseppe Benanti who (following a lustrous career building one of Italy’s largest pharmaceutical companies) put the estate on track to make internationally recognized wines. Today, Giuseppe works alongside his sons, twin brothers Salvino and Antonio Benanti. At the foot of Mt. Etna, the Benanti family makes wonderful wines from traditional Sicilian grape varieties such as Nerello Mascalese, Carricante and Nerello Cappuccino. Elegance, structure and charm defines both the wine and the family running this estate. The brothers will guide SeaDream guests through the vineyard and will conclude the visit with a tasting of their top wines accompanied by local cheeses, salami and fresh baked bread. A stunning fine wine experiences at the slopes of Mt. Etna.
