Delicioso, based in Palma de Mallorca and headed by ex marketing guru, Helen Richards, was launched in 2009 to fill a gap in the yacht provisioning market.
Delicioso have well established itself in the Western Mediterranean as the provisioner to contact for all the finest produce. Helen’s ethos has always been to ensure they listen to their customers and provide the produce that is in demand to the finest quality, without the busy crew having to make many different phone calls sourcing their requirements.
Delicioso and Fine Wine Works are proud to announce their new collaboration.
Helen has historically supplied fine wines from all around the world, so just last year began to work with and supply wines from French Riviera based wine experts and suppliers, Fine Wine Works. This gave birth to an excellent partnership, which has grown and developed into a mutual collaboration between two like-minded businesses, to ensure the yachts and crew are able to order their provisions and trust they will be delivered at a good price, at the right time.
Helen Richards, founder of Delicioso states:
"I am excited to be working with Fine Wine Works. We will now be able to offer a full wine provisioning service for our clients with a superior wine list. Many of these wines will be stocked at Delicioso enabling us to offer clients a same day delivery service. Also available is a tailored bespoke service for the more tricky wines, backed up by Fine Wine Works expertise, to ensure we can find your specific requests. The wine courses are the icing on the cake for us and complete the wine jigsaw puzzle. We are now proud to be your one stop shop for all your provisioning requirements.”
Another string to their metaphorical bow is that they are also pleased to offer PYA Approved WSET courses at all three levels in Palma de Mallorca too. Helen Brotherton of Fine Wine Works conducts much of the teaching herself as a qualified Master of Wine. Helen states
“Our new partnership with Delicioso means that we can truly support some of our loyal yacht clients from our South of France base, and reassure them that our fierce commitment to service and to getting them the Wines they want and need, and also their off-season Training requirements, now also follows them to the Balearics. I have worked with wines from both supply and sourcing, owning my own restaurants and two Wine Merchant / Delis since 1997. Prior to that I was a professional actress, which somehow follows me into a rather particular style of teaching wine. It is also great to find a partner company with the same ideals and determination and dedication to “getting it right” – we are extremely positive about this first 2014 season working with Delicioso and we’ll raise a glass to that!”
Delicioso and Fine Wine Works are running their next courses in March to kick off this fortuitous partnership and are looking forward to a busy season ahead.
Further to this, the collaboration have joined forces with Jen Woodruff of Escapade Bars in Mallorca to be able to offer the first PYA approved cocktail courses. The courses will begin in Mallorca in the spring.
