wine courses for professional yacht crew
At the Genoa Yacht Training Academy at Genoa Superyacht Hub we have two exciting courses designed especially for yacht interior crew.
Wine Consultant and Certified WSET Educator Hannah Lunn will be joining us to run these two courses aimed at different levels of wine knowledge. And where better to get in some serious wine training hours than Genoa – strategically located between some of the world’s most renowned wine regions – Tuscany, Piedmont and Lombardy.
