Discover Napa Valley Wine Cruise
Cruise with owners, winemakers, & other experts
Dec 19, 2015 – 7-10pm
Pier 3, San Francisco
Enjoy a wine tasting experience a bit outside the box—or, in this case, out to sea! Join over two dozen Napa Valley wineries and winemakers for an evening to remember: sip premium wines with the owners and winemakers, nibble on gourmet foods, receive wine prizes, and much more – all while sailing past San Francisco’s iconic landmarks.

“Sip and Sail was an awesome way to become introduced to some smaller winemakers from one of my favorite regions. I loved the intimacy and personal joy they shared behind their wines. Being local, it also gave me the opportunity to truly enjoy the spectacular bridge and city views that I don’t think I’ve seen since first coming here as a tourist.”
“What a wonderful way to meet new friends and experience some great wines! I was able to meet and speak to the owners, winemakers, and very knowledgeable reps. I had a great time sipping wine, eating delicious appetizers and all the while l, watching the beautiful San Francisco Bay views! I ended up buying 6 bottles of wine from vineyards I haven’t yet discovered and joined one Wine Club! Looking forward to the next event!”
“Sip and Sail is a one-in-a-lifetime experience that was not just romantic, but it helped broaden my palate. I took the risk of bringing the in-laws on the cruise and it was a special part of their trip to San Francisco. Next time? It will be just me and the wife.”
“Can’t wait for the next Sip and Sail! Last November, we had a glorious evening on the San Francisco Bay as we cruised and mingled with fellow wine enthusiasts, met knowledgeable winemakers and of course indulged in sips of their wines. The promotional Sip and Sail prices by the wineries spurred our purchases. Subsequently, we have enjoyed sharing the bottles and evening experience with others who are eager to join the next time. Clarisse F. Kostrzewski is a superb, meticulous planner and we know her next event will exceed her first sail.”
