Celebrity Cruises Offers Oz Clarke Wine Tasting Sessions

Celebrity Cruises has partnered with London wine venue Vinopolis to offer their cruise guests wine tasting sessions hosted by TV personality and renowned wine connoisseur Oz Clarke.

Clarke's wine tasting sessions will take place during the ‘Immersive Europe’ wine cruise onboard Celebrity Constellation which will depart from Southampton on October 13.

The Cruise will visit some of Europe’s best known wine regions during the harvest season calling at Bilbao, Vigo, Porto, Le Havre and Le Verdon for Bordeaux.

Alongside the tasting sessions, guests can enjoy Champagne brunches, lessons in food and wine pairing, Bordeaux wine samplings and exclusive shore excursions to vineyards and chateaux’s.

Oz Clarke is one of the world's leading wine experts and is renowned for his extensive knowledge of wines and his amazingly acute palette. He has appeared frequently on BBC TV and radio and has wrote many guides and articles regarding wine.

Vinopolis managing director Lucy Haines stated: “We’ve worked closely with Oz Clarke during his masterclasses held in London, and matching this with the food and wine enjoyed by guests of Celebrity Cruises made perfect sense.”

Oz Clarke said: “Not only am I looking forward to learning more about the impressive wine selections, bars and restaurants from Celebrity Cruises, I'm also keen to talk to fine food and wine fans, share my knowledge and bring to life some of the Vinopolis experience whilst having a great time onboard the ship.
