Description

Imagine a dedicated and passionate wine provisioning company that fulfils all your wine needs on board - supplying fine wines, offering expert advice, and providing WSET wine training for crew. Imagine they can also source rare wines and deliver them directly to your yacht wherever you are. Add to this their passion and knowledge, excellent customer service and highly competitive rates.

In short, this is Riviera Wine! We hope to become (or continue to be) your partner in wine, in whichever port you may be!

Our depth of experience has led to the development of an exemplary wine and spirits list for discerning owners and charter guests. Many of our wines can be delivered without delay from our climate controlled warehouse in Antibes, while others will require 24h-48h notice.

We can also advise on the initial wine selection for new build yachts, based on a deep understanding of the owner's tastes, making it easier for crew to manage the onboard cellar.

In 2014 General Manager Louise Sydbeck received the prestigious title of Master of Wine, the pinnacle of wine education. Riviera Wine is the only wine provisioner who can boast a Master of Wine at the helm and Louise's bespoke advice is greatly appreciated by our clients who testify to her expert recommendations!

We look forward to hearing from you!

Coravin: The Ultimate Wine Tool for a Stew

System 1 1920x752 3 4

How many times have you served just one glass of wine from a bottle and the rest has gone to waste. As you may have experienced, wine generally only holds for a few days before it starts losing their fruit and freshness before eventually turning to vinegar. Some wines can hold for a few days whereas some lighter whites and very light rosés can loose their freshness after only one day.The technology provided through the concept of Coravin however, has changed that. It is now fully possible to serve Petrus by the glass to demanding charter guests and then serve from the same bottles to another charter a few months later!

What is Coravin?

Coravin is a simple device that allows you to pour a glass of wine without pulling the cork. The concept was invented by Greg Lambrecht who wanted to be able to open several bottles at one time without having to drink it all or through it down the sink. “My dream was to magically pour wine from bottles without ever pulling the cork. The remaining wine could then go back in my cellar, so that I could enjoy it again, whenever I desired”.
The way it works is that instead of opening the bottle, you push down a needle into the cork. The needle injects an inert gas called argon that protects the wine from oxidation and wine then flows through the needle and into the glass. The needle is removed from the cork and the cork reseals, protecting the wine and allowing you to enjoy it months later.
This clever little device is now being used all over the world by wine professionals, novices, wine bars and restaurants. Even the famous wine critic Robert Parker is a fan - “Coravin is the most transformational and exciting new product for wine lovers that has been developed/invented in the last 30 years, this is a killer device.”
We recommend every yacht to have one of board, so you can serve those expensive wines without wasting a thing. Coravin is available to buy on their website for around 300€ including two of the Argon capsules. Be sure to buy plenty of capsules as they don’t last too long.
