UnCruise Adventures

Experience Oregon & Washington Wine Country Aboard a Replica Coastal Steamer

Lifting a glass of glinting ruby-hued wine, it’s impossible not to appreciate the lasting effects ancient geology had on this remarkable region. Complex soils, ample sun,  just-so winds, and the unwavering dedication of Oregon and Washington winemakers—this combination of factors have yielded spectacular results. I’m pleased to announce that once again, I’ll be partnering with UnCruise Adventures as the wine expert on two ‘Rivers of Wine’ cruises. Together we’ll explore five AVA’s traversing dramatic topography as we make our way east along the Columbia—from alpine forest to semi-arid desert—we’ll visit multiple wineries followed by nightly onboard tastings and presentations. I’ll co-host the wine presentations along with the ship’s talented resident sommelier.
