Lawrence D’Almeida, Wine Ambassador

It’s said that wine is a passion, and that is what makes Lawrence D’Almeida the ideal wine ambassador for Silversea.

This native of Paris, France initially followed a different path, studying at John Cabot International College in Rome, and at both Yale and Harvard, where one of his reading subjects was Italian Medieval History. Returning to Europe, Lawrence worked for an Italian art publishing company in Milan, and as an agent for The Boston Camerata, a Medieval and Renaissance music ensemble.

Yet the wine world beckoned, and he moved to Miami, Florida to work in the wine distribution and retail industry before returning to Italy to learn winemaking at Tenuta di Arceno, Kendall-Jackson’s Chianti Classico estate in the heart of Tuscany. He became the winemaker and director of the boutique Chianti Classico Winery Villa Casale. In addition to serving as Silversea’s wine ambassador, Lawrence also serves as a wine production consultant, winemaking and tasting guide, as well as a cultural and historical guide in Italy, where he lives in Florence.
