Last month, we co-hosted an exclusive wine tasting with Hill Robinson Crew in the Astilleros de Mallorca shipyard. Our Oenologist, Romain Henrion, guided the team through an exciting selection of premium wines from around the world. After the wine flight, all attendees were invited to participate in a blind tasting competition – congratulations to superyacht chef Javier Paradinas from M/Y Star who took home the award for finest palate of the night!
It was a wonderful evening that was both fun and educational, crew members left feeling confident with their new sommelier-level wine knowledge.
