Robin Cooper – Behrens Family Winery

In 2003 Robin Cooper, a native New Yorker and successful Executive Recruiter in the world of Wall Street, came to the Napa Valley to work harvest for Behrens Family Winery as an intern and to have a “life experience.” She has remained ever since. In 2006, the owners of the same winery decided it was time to start letting people come to visit and tapped Robin to create a hospitality function for them. Since then Robin has been the Director of Hospitality and Customer Relations for Behrens Family Winery, representing the award-winning wines of Les Behrens and Lisa Drinkward.

These tiny production red wines produced on Spring Mountain in Napa are sourced from special low yielding vineyard sites from some of the best growers throughout the Napa Valley as well as Sonoma County, which result in a partnership of vineyards obsessed with producing extremely high-quality fruit.

Join Robin on a voyage of discovery starting in Cambodia, then voyaging down the mighty Mekong River, aboard AmaDara, visiting the remarkable temples of Angkor Wat, the cities of Phnom Penh and Saigon and rural villages of Indochina where time stands still.

On board Robin will conduct two tastings and a paired dinner with the wines of Behrens Family Vineyard. More importantly, we’ll see sites of Southeast Asia not visited by most Americans.

Les Behrens and Lisa Drinkward cordially invite you to join Robin on a voyage down the Mekong River from Cambodia to Vietnam. This voyage of discovery is literally a trip back in time. Explore the temples of Siem Reap and Angkor Wat, the vibrant cities of Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Minh City (formerly called Saigon) and a 7-night cruise down the slow-paced, mystical Mekong River. This journey is for our adventurers, a timeless journey that is a kaleidoscope of colors, ancient cultures and amazing cuisine on Indochina. Hand-selected wines of Behrens Family Winery will accent the exotic dishes along the way.

Join us on this 12-night inclusive tour and river cruise of Southeast Asia.
