In loving memory of Christopher Silva, Former President and CEO of St. Francis Winery
Join St. Francis Winery & Vineyards and J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines for a special Wine Cruise celebrating the life of Christopher Silva, one of AmaWaterway’s dearest friends and treasured Wine Hosts.
If you had the honor of taking a Wine Cruise hosted by Christopher Silva, then you experienced passion at its finest. The late President and CEO of St. Francis Winery & Vineyards was an ambitious and beloved vintner, described by all who knew him as “larger than life”. When Christopher passed over a year ago, he left priceless memories in the hearts of our AmaWaterways family. Although his wit, charm and unforgettable wine-themed sailings cannot be replaced, Christopher’s spirit lives on through his many friends and colleagues, both at
St. Francis Winery & Vineyards and throughout the California wine industry.
Rick Bonitati of St. Francis Winery & Vineyards along with Lawrence Lohr, fellow wine educator of J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines, will be on hand as your co-hosts to share stories and knowledge of the wines and the Sonoma County wine region Christopher loved so well, while guiding you through some of the exclusive wine regions of France.
As a lasting tribute, a donation to the Christopher Silva endowment at the Santa Rosa Junior College will be made by AmaWaterways and the Karst Family for each guest in this select group.
We hope you’ll join us in celebrating and toasting a life well lived. Cheers to our friend Christopher!
