Silver Moon’s Godmother announced

Silversea announces the Godmother of Silver Moon.

Silver Moon, Silversea

Posted on

04 Feb 2020

Gaia Gaja has been named as the Godmother of Silversea’s new ultra-luxury ship Silver Moon. Gaja is of the fifth generation to own and manage the renowened Gaja winery in the small Italian town of Barbaresco – a family-run business and iconic producer of fine Italian wine since 1859.

As Silver Moon’s Godmother, Gaja will officially name her at a dedicated ceremony in Trieste on 5th August 2020. A knowledgeable purveyor of her craft and with an unwavering commitment to exceptional quality, Gaja embodies the core values of Silversea. She said of her new role, “I feel great pride and honour to have been selected by Silversea Cruises as the Godmother of the beautiful Silver Moon.

“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.”

Gaja’s deeply rooted connection with Italian culinary culture makes her the perfect choice for Silver Moon’s Godmother, as Silversea’s pioneering new culinary concept, S.A.L.T. (Sea and Land Taste), will launch with the ship on 6th August 2020.

Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, Silversea’s Executive Chairman said, “Our new S.A.L.T. programme reflects our commitment to engaging with the places we travel through the lens of food, wine and culinary culture.

“Given this culinary focus and Silver Moon’s proud Italian heritage, I can’t think of a better Godmother than Gaia Gaja who personifies Italian elegance, innovation and good taste. Like our cruise line, Gaia represents a lineage of excellence rooted in tradition and propelled by a forward-thinking, restless pursuit of innovation. I’m delighted she’ll be involved as Godmother, sharing her family’s vision of great taste as we begin this new journey aboard Silver Moon.”
