Learn About Wine and Wealth Management on Windstar Cruises’ WIND SURF
Windstar Cruises, which operates a three-ship fleet of luxury yachts that explore hidden harbors and secluded coves of the world’s most treasured destinations, offers guests the opportunity to learn about wine from David Gianulias and Todd Rustman, founders of Napa Valley’s Levendi Winery, along with wealth management on Wind Surf’s May 8, 2011 Barcelona to Rome voyage.
The Gianulias family has a strong Greek tradition of private winemaking dating back centuries. In ancient Greece, wine was vital to both culture and community. Today, Mediterranean communities still hold wine in the highest regard. Since 1926, Levendi has developed ultra-premium Napa Valley vintages. Aboard Wind Surf, Gianulias and Rustman will lecture on the winemaking process and conduct a wine tasting. For more information on Levendi Winery, please visit www.levendiwinery.com
In addition to winemaking at Levendi, Rustman is co-founder of GR Capital Asset Management, a financial management firm based in Newport Beach, Calif. Rustman will conduct a lecture on wealth management during the sailing. For more information on GR Capital Asset Management, please visit www.gr-cam.com.
