Silversea – – Wine Tasting & Dinner

No comments

April 20th

After a great visit to Bolgheri and Argentiera, we headed back to the ship for what I thought would be a relaxing and uneventful evening until dinner.  To my surprise, sommelier Mike Leblanc decided a small intimate wine tasting was in order on the heels of our excursion.

I met Mike two years ago as we cruised from Nice to Civitavecchia and with each return he makes sure to have a nice little surprise – – this tasting was a welcomed one.  Here are the wines and awesome appetizers.

Dinner:

After tasting through these wonderful wines Mike selected, the decision was made to make it an Italian evening and indulge in a little something special.  Could not get enough of that Rossj-Bass and the Sassicaia, well it’s Sassicaia!!!! Here’s dinner.
