Every major wine region in the world is represented in the complimentary range, as well as every major wine grape, with a focus on Italian wines as an homage to the cruise line’s heritage. Local wines are also added to Silversea’s wine selection depending on the area of the world the ships are sailing in.
Designed with wine-related destinations in mind and hosted either by Silversea’s Wine Ambassador or by master sommeliers, Silversea's range of wine themed cruises offers a selection of oenological experiences across the world, from onboard lectures and tastings to shore-based excursions.
“From a rare Italian wine that is virtually unheard of to the very finest bottles that no luxury establishment can be without, our range of wines - both complimentary and premium - is tailored to provide our guests with an insight into the world’s best wines,” says Birgit Vadlau, Silversea Food & Beverage Director. “Our offering of fine wines is unmatched on any other all-inclusive programme at sea. Our wine voyages exemplify the exceptional range of experiences that guests can enjoy through Silversea and incorporate the finest tastes of the visited destinations.”
