Vintage Seabourn Silver Sure Beats Centrum ...

WORTHY OF PREMIUM TOASTS: Sommeliers on board Seabourn Pride, Spirit and Legend are offering guests a Vintage Seabourn pre-purchase option granting access to a varied selection of premium wines from the ships' well-stocked, diversified cellars, at special privileged prices. "We pour complimentary wines, and quite a nice selection of very good ones, on board all our Seabourn yachts," notes president Deborah L. Natansohn, adding that each ship also carries a remarkable collection of rarer or more unusual wines, for exploration. Vintage Seabourn is at two levels. For $150, the Vintage Seabourn Silver collection provides six premium whites and six premium reds including one dessert wine selection, from which guests select three bottles to enjoy aboard. Vintage Seabourn Gold, at $300, offers the same menu, plus an additional four whites and four reds of higher priced vintages, for a total of six bottles. Although menus routinely change, Vintage Seabourn Silver selection wines might include whites such as a Domaine Laroche "Les Blanchots" selling for $65 individually; a Laetitia Pinot Noir in the red category that sells for $66 and, for dessert, a Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes that sells individually for $58.
