Vineland Estates Winery's 40th Anniversary Cruise

Join celebrated Winemaker Brian Schmidt for this special one-time only reunion.

8 Day Classic Rhine River Cruise

April 6, 2019 | Departing Mainz - Amsterdam

To celebrate Vineland Estates Winery 40th anniversary of the planting of their home vineyard, we are going back to where it all began in Germany at St. Urbans-Hof Winery on the Moselle River. Hermann Weis, now 83, planted Vineland Estates Winery's Riesling vineyard in Ontario with cuttings from his own vineyard in Germany. His clone (Weis 21) has been a grand “transplant” success and is now growing all over North America. Hermann Weis is excited by the news of the trip and celebration plus the new world/old world reunification and tasting. He is the man that started it all in 1979 at age 43 and in fact was a key pioneer in starting the fine wine revolution in Canada and the United States. Brian Schmidt, Winemaker of Vineland Estates Winery, invites you to join him for the 40th anniversary of that historic time by going back with a ship full of family and friends. This is a true treat for wine enthusiasts! 

To celebrate this very special all-inclusive cruise we are offering return flights to Europe for only $495 per person.
