What is Riviera Wine?
With over 15 years’ experience of supplying fine wines to yachts on the Riviera and beyond, Riviera Wine is considered to be one of the most experienced and respected wine suppliers in the industry. Riviera Wine is also the only yacht wine supplier to have a Master of Wine at the helm and as such, are able to combine the highest wine knowledge with a vital focus and understanding of the yachting industry.
In 2014 Louise Sydbeck, owner and founder, became the 100th woman in the world to earn the MW title which is viewed as the pinnacle of wine education.
Riviera Wine has at its disposal a dedicated team with many years of experience in the wine trade, an excellent track-record in the yachting industry and an enormous passion for wine and service. Our focus is attention to detail, efficiency and competitive pricing. In our climate controlled cellar we hold stock of the most popular lines of wine and champagne which are available for same day delivery almost without limitation along the French and some of the Italian Riviera. Our extensive network of suppliers further means we can furnish any specific request quickly, efficiently and economically.
As a wine supplier we feel it our responsibility to educate the crew about wines and we do this by conducting the WSET internationally recognized wine courses regularly throughout the year. This is something we have offered since 2008 when we became the first approved program provider of the WSET wine courses for the yachting industry. Several other has followed since.
In the quest for adding value and promote wine knowledge throughout the industry, Louise Sydbeck MW has just finished writing the first wine book aimed at yachting, The Yacht Crew Wine Guide, which will be out in June 2017.
