Riviera Wine testimonials and feedback

Louise Sydbeck and the team of Riviera Wine have a unique way of sharing their passion for wine. Whether you are a fine connoisseur or you hardly know anything about wine, they know how give you a great experience. They are not just about delivering fine wine, they deliver unique moments.

Peter Murray Kerr
PRESIDENT
YPY (Young Partners in Yachting)

I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Ulf and Louise and the Riviera Yacht Support and Riviera Wine team since the conception of the company. Riviera Yacht Support was one of the first of its kind on the French coast, assisting the captains and crew with great local knowledge and know how, providing a wide range of services and sourcing supplies from main engine parts to the best priced Fine Wines available. They have always delivered a high quality, dynamic and efficient service, nothing is ever too much trouble, and the team always managed to find a solution. With a busy schedule and those last minute owner and charter client requests, they have never let me down and I look forward to working with them for many years to come.

I have been a customer of Riviera Yacht Support and Riviera Wine for many years now and it never ceases to amaze me the lengths they are prepared to go to ensure exemplary service. I recently tasked them with stocking a 78m new build with prestige wines, with only a vague idea of what was required. Unpacking three pallets on time and in perfect order was like Christmas come early. Such an inspired choice which pleased the owner greatly, Louise’s vast experience was clearly evident. They have pulled out the stops and performed the impossible on more than one occasion and ensured our apparent seamless service on board, for which I shall be eternally grateful!

We would like to thank you all for the excellent support you have provided us with. Wine delivery on short notice on Bastille Day, three out of four berths requested by the clients confirmed, Awkward satellite TV installation done while goal posts were moving, carpenter pulled in for guests request for an unusual table top to be made and last but not least, a truly impressive repair of a defect sun awning. We dropped it off in Antibes, it was transported to Italy, repaired and delivered back on board in Monaco - and all in one day. Nothing short of outstanding!

I have been dealing with Riviera Yacht Support and Riviera Wine for the last 3-4 years on Lady Soul and since 2004 on other yachts, and have no hesitation in recommending them as a top yachting agent in the South of France! We have used them extensively for fuel, berthing, wines, last minute charter help… and have never been disappointed. It is always a great relief to have support 24/7 when you are in the demanding industry of yachting. RYS is the first company I call when I need anything in France or supplies shipped from France to where ever the yacht is.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for such a fascinating and informative event on M/Y Princess AVK earlier this week. For many of the brokers present it was a first so even more interesting. The event was the talk of the dock the next day so great publicity for both Riviera Wine and also the yacht.

I wanted to personally thank you for the WONDERFUL wine tasting you organized for YPY last night; it was an absolute success. Well done for your fantastic organization, your presentation, the food and wine pairing was great. Really, all feedback received was super positive so a big thank you.

Louise at Riviera Wine has been M.Y. Maraya’s main wine supplier for the past four years. Louise has an amazing knowledge of wine which she is always happy to share to ensure that the wine provided is perfect. Louise’s ability to source almost any wine or vintage at competitive prices is incredible, deliveries are always prompt wherever they may be and come with the all-important and extremely useful fact sheet about each wine. I look forward to working with Louise and Riviera Wine in the future and receiving the amazing advice and service she is renowned for. Thank you.

We have used Riviera Yacht Support and Riviera Wine as our wine supplier for many years and we have always been delighted with the efficient service and valuable expertise they consistently provide. Louise Sydbeck is immensely knowledgeable and is always on hand with advice and support should I need it. She has also been a wonderful teacher to many past and present interior crew, helping her students gain understanding, certificates and confidence in this area of service.

You guys have been extremely helpful! I just wanted to let you know. I contacted 2 separate agencies in Italy and in Sardinia who both advised to get the coke it would take 7-10 working days. Whereas you got this in 2 days. Additionally your speediness with the wines is very impressive. Thank you!!
