Already known for its opulence at sea, Cunard's flagship Queen Mary 2, will soon be home to over 450 fine wines, including one of the most expensive bottles at sea – the California Screaming Eagle which retails at US$4,500 per bottle.
Rounding out the collection will be an additional 46 different vintage ports to choose from, each produced in a key year of Cunard's 176-year history.
The vintage ports will form part of a specially commissioned permanent display in the new Carinthia Lounge during the ships major 25-day dry-dock between May 27 and June 21.
But why pour the new elegant wine, when you can extract the desired amount via the new Coravin™ pouring system, using a needle to extract the wine without affecting the quality of the contents.
A new culinary food and wine pairing experience will also be introduced – The Cunard Wine Academy, with tastings and master classes from producers around the world in a new enriching experience.
“Our sommeliers, together with our suppliers, have searched the world for exciting new additions to Cunard's famous wine list,” said Cunard’s Head of Fine Wines Anthony Habert. “We’re proud that we can offer a wine to compliment every palate and occasion.”
