Silversea names Silver Moon godmother
A fifth-generation Italian winery owner has been named as the godmother for Silversea’s new ship Silver Moon.
Gaia Gaja owns and manages the renowned Gaja winery in the small Italian town of Barbaresco, a family-run business and producer of fine Italian wine since 1859.
She will officially name Silver Moon at a dedicated ceremony in Trieste on August 5, 2020.
Silversea said Gaja’s deep-rooted connection with Italian culinary culture made her the perfect choice for godmother of Silver Moon, which will launch Silversea's new culinary concept S.A.L.T (Sea and Land Taste).
“I feel great pride and honour to have been selected by Silversea Cruises as the Godmother of the beautiful Silver Moon,” Gaja said.
“I passionately believe that food and drink facilitate profound discovery - into destinations, cultures and people - and that guests will nurture strong connections with amazing destinations as a result of S.A.L.T., the ship’s innovative culinary offering.
“My own experience with wine making has taught me that culinary discovery possesses limitless potential; here’s to the curious travellers who seek to unlock it.”
