A Toast to Douro Delights: Why Three Hammers Winery Raised a Glass to Avalon

Greetings! We are Christine Pucciarello and Rob Kobrzynski, the proprietors of Three Hammers Winery and we are passionate about Portuguese wines and river cruises. We chose Avalon for our unforgettable Douro River escape accompanied by 75 wine club members of Three Hammers Winery while maximizing our capacity on a very special selected boat named the Avalon Alegria. With over 635 members, we may need to book a fleet of Avalon boats the next time!

For us, it isn’t just about the stunning landscapes, though waking up to panoramic views of ancient quintas is certainly a perk. It is the curated freedom Avalon is offering us. Imagine bypassing rigid itineraries and instead, embarking on journeys tailored to our palate. We’re picturing intimate tastings at hidden wineries, led by passionate winemakers, followed by leisurely lunches paired with perfectly selected vintages. Avalon doesn't just take you to the Douro, it immerses you in its very essence, one delicious sip at a time.

Choosing Avalon for our Douro River escape isn't just about the destination; it's about the journey. It's about indulging in passionate experiences, forging meaningful connections with our wine club members, and creating memories that will linger long after the last sip. And that, as Three Hammers Winery is anticipating to be discovered, is the true essence of the "real Avalon experience" - a toast to exploration, connection, and a touch of unforgettable magic.


As a WSET certified Sommelier, my life revolves around wine. Joining Avalon Waterways' Partnership Program was a natural extension of that passion. This June, I'm thrilled to host a group on their Active and Discovery on the Danube cruise, exploring the legendary wine regions of Austria and Hungary alongside fellow enthusiasts. It's an incredible opportunity to share my knowledge through exclusive tastings in charming riverside towns, all crafted in collaboration with Avalon's dedicated team. 

What truly sets Avalon apart is their commitment to their partners. They've treated me like family from the start, tailoring my pre-cruise and post-experiences and providing personalized attention. This collaborative approach ensures that every moment on this June journey will be unforgettable for guests seeking adventure, cultural immersion, and of course, exceptional wine. If you're a fellow wine lover curious about this unique experience, be sure to explore Avalon's Partnership Program – it's the perfect journey for those who want to sip, savor, and discover the rivers of Europe in style.
