Food & Wine Trails Offers Personal Sommelier on Silversea Cruises


Can’t tell the difference between a pinot noir and a pinot grigio? Well, maybe you can tell the difference between those. But if you’re going on tours of world-renowned wineries, you’ll probably want an experienced sommelier with you to help you along. That’s where Food & Wine Trails comes into the picture: The culinary travel providers are offering a complimentary Sommelier, Car & Driver program to guests aboard select Silversea Cruises’ 2012 Mediterranean trips.

When the ship docks, spend half a day touring the exquisite wineries of Livorno, Italy, Marseille, France, and Barcelona, Spain, with your own personal wine guide. Sip on the best Tuscan reds in the Bolgheri region, enjoy full-bodied Provencal vin in Bandol, or drink the bubbly Spanish Cava in Penedes. If you choose to indulge in a day filled entirely of wine tastings, travelers can opt to extend the tour for a charge of $300.

Silversea cruises start at $2,999 per person based on double occupancy for a 10-night cruise. This price includes all onboard meals, entertainment, and the complimentary Sommelier package, but does not include onshore meals or wine tasting fees (though many wineries do not charge fees). Call (800) 367-5348 to speak with a Food & Wine Trails Counselor and to book your cruise.
