Riviera Yacht Support was founded in 2000 and has since become the premier yachting agent on the French Riviera. Over the years the wine division has grown immensely as clients have come to appreciate our knowledge and passion for wines and so last year Riviera Wine was launched. In 2014, Louise who heads up Riviera Wine, became the 100th woman in the world to be awarded the Master of Wine qualification. Our team has been together now for many years and fully understands the rigors and demands put upon the captain and crew during the season. Let us use our vast contact network and can do attitudes to give you back the time you desire, so you can focus on your job, while we focus on ours.
