Specialty Wine Cruises is a division
of Specialty Cruise & Villas, which was established in 1995 for
the purpose of marketing the worlds most luxurious cruise lines,
as well as luxury villa rentals in Italy. The company is owned by
Jim Bisciglia, who has spent 25 years in the cruise industry. Specialty
Cruise & Villas is a top producer for Silversea and Radisson
Seven Seas Cruises, as well as the top producer in the world for
ResidenSea. We have all traveled on and are intimately familiar with
each product we offer. References can be provided upon request.
We have been organizing wine cruises for three years and have
found them to be very popular and great fun to produce. Our goal
is to offer only the best; the most luxurious cruise lines, the
best wine and the best shore experiences. Much of the wine you
will drink is rare and hard to find. We shop the auctions year
round putting together our collections. On a week cruise, we offer
you the opportunity of tasting over 50 of these special bottles;
from 1961 Mouton to 1795 Madeira.
Our cruises are generally themed, so one will feature “Super
Tuscans”, while another may feature first growth Bordeaux.
You can look at a partial wine list for each cruise in our Cruises section. You can choose your interest. We can also put together
and wine experiences before or after your cruise.
