We will visit two wineries on this tour, both of which have recently been written about in The New York Times.

First, we will travel out to Petra Winery, a 740-acre estate. The vineyards are mineral-rich and ruddy colored (as in the color of Santa's cheeks), making complex and delicious wines. Here, they produce Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. The owners have studied the soil, wind, sun, and climate conditions in each area of the estate to produce the best wines.

The four high-end wines made here (Ebo, Petra, Quercegobbe, and Zingari) are known for being expressive, aromatic wines with a fresh, modern style.

One of the most enjoyable features of this winery is the architecture. It is a contemporary structure designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta (who also designed the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art), whose color choices also complement the environment.

You will also visit a second winery, Rocca di Frassinello, whose wine cellar was designed by world famous architect Renzo Piano.

We will break for lunch in Suvereto, a middle-age village whose origins date back to before the year 1000. It's a gorgeous location that overlooks the Costa degli Etruschi.

Time permitting, we can incorporate visits to places in the same area as the wineries, such as Populonia, Massa Marittima, and Bolgheri.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
