Silversea Cruises is rolling out a new Wine Series collection of 11 voyages this year designed for wine enthusiasts.

On each wine cruise, guests with a passion for fine wines will enjoy sampling great vintages and learning about the tradition and art of winemaking in special tastings and lectures conducted by wine professionals, vineyard owners, and winemakers, according to a press release from the cruise line.

Depending on the itinerary, guests may also have the chance to explore some of the world's most celebrated wine regions on optional guided shore excursions. Onboard each of Silversea's ships, guests also enjoy an extensive complimentary selection of fine red and white wine pairings with both lunch and dinner.

"Our wine-themed voyages offer guests the chance to broaden their understanding and appreciation of one of life's most cherished luxuries -- fine wine," said Ellen Bettridge, Silversea's president of the Americas. "We've invited top experts from some of the world's most acclaimed vineyards and wineries to mingle and interact with our guests, guiding them through entertaining tastings and lectures that add a unique and enriching dimension to their travel experience."
