She’s the shining star of Barbaresco, Italy
By Patti Pietschmann Travel Diva
The newly-named Godmother of Silversea’s new ultra-luxury ship Silver Moon, Gaia Gaja, is known as the Queen of Barbaresco. That is where she owns and operates a fifth generation winery that produces fine Italian wine. Gaja will officially name Silver Moon at a ceremony in Trieste on August 5, 2020.
Gaia’s vineyard background goes back to her childhood. She actually had a wine named for her–Gaia & Rey Chardonna—before she could walk.
“I feel great pride and honor to be the godmother of the beautiful Silver Moon,” says Gaia. “Food and drink facilitate profound discovery into destinations, cultures and people.”
Gaia’s extensive culinary and wine background complement Silversea’s new culinary concept, S.A.L.T. (Sea and Land Taste).
Foods of the world
The S.A.L.T. program launches with the Moon. It’s intent is to bring awareness of the role of food and drink plays in travel. The idea is to introduce passengers to destination by showcasing entire ecosystems around the culinary cultures of the world.
The Muse will sport a S.A.L.T. Kitchen, Lab, and Bar. The three venues will help passengers develop an appreciation for regional ingredients and culinary customs of ports they’ll be visiting.
S.A.L.T.debuts on Silver Muse
The new S.A.L.T. program reflects Silversea’s commitment to engaging with the places it goes. It’s sort of looking through the lens of food, wine and culinary culture, according to Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Silversea’s Executive Chairman. “Gaia represents a lineage of excellence rooted in tradition and propelled by a forward-thinking, restless pursuit of innovation.”
