WSET Wine courses

Learn from a Master of Wine

In 2007 we were the first company to introduce the WSET® course to the yachting industry and since then we have trained over 350 crew members. We are thrilled to see that this internationally recognised wine qualification is gaining momentum in our industry as fellow wine suppliers have followed in our footsteps and more and more crew are signing up for our courses (one of our former stewardesses is now a wine maker in Australia!).

The Wine and Spirit Education Trust - WSET®

The Wine and Spirit Education Trust was founded in the UK in 1969 to provide high quality education and training in wines and spirits. Since then, WSET® has grown into the foremost international body in the field of wines and spirits education, with a suite of sought-after qualifications. Although based in London, there are around 600 centres in 60 countries around the world and Riviera Wine was the first one to become an Approved Program Provider on the French Riviera.
