Wine on board the Caribbean with JustJess and WineChannelTV

Wine on board the Caribbean with great food and friends is a perfect pairing!

I was on board the high seas recently for the WineHarvest Celebration on Celebrity Century cruise as a guest speaker throughout the week for varying wine 101 classes, food and wine pairings, etc. This was my first cruise and it was a blast.Here’s a pic of me in the main lobby area:

While on board the cruise, different themed dinners occur throughout the week. This video was done at a formal dinner in the main dining area. If you’re a foodie and ever can’t decide on which appetizer or main course to get when dining out, a cruise is for you, mainly because of the endless supply of free food. I wish the wine was as well! Below you can see I couldn’t decide on just one dessert, so got all 3 and some nice Ice wine with that apple tart 🙂

The menu changed each night in this particular restaurant. There were about 4 different dining areas on board, the majority of people seemed to love the buffet area; especially for breakfast with every imaginable food you can think of…

For this particular evening I went with a refreshing, crisp 2009 Southern Right South African Sauvignon Blanc, about $14.99 a bottle and earned 90 points by WS. The wine hit the spot after a long day of wine tasting on board.  It had a wonderful Old World minerality and New World bright lime and lemon palate.

Watch and enjoy this Caribbean cruise wine video! Stay tuned for more videos on board with the CellarMaster and Cruise director!

Cheers,

JustJess

    I have to try that South African sauvi blanc! Looks like you had a ton of fun, as well as work, on your cruise.
