Now, with an expert team of marine archaeologists, historians and divers, and using state-of-the-art Coravin technology, guests can unearth these historic bottles for themselves.

Multi-award-winning Sally is the best-selling author of seven biographies, and her latest, Prince Charles: The Passions and Paradoxes of an Improbable Life, was an instant bestseller on the New York Times, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal lists. Her previous biographies include Elizabeth the Queen: The Life of a Modern Monarch, and it was this title that led Sally to act as a consultant to playwright Peter Morgan on The Audience, his award-winning production about Queen Elizabeth II starring Helen Mirren. Also a distinguished journalist, Sally was the cultural news reporter for The New York Times and a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. Since 2017 she has  also been an on-the-air contributor for CNN, offering analysis and commentary on the British royal family. She is currently writing a dual biography of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.
