The club events create a great cultural atmosphere providing a perfect business platform for sharing contacts and ideas and at the same time introducing new and unique locations that offer wonderful ambiences for networking. It is my honour to be a member of such a high-class, traditional yet modern club. I wish you great success.” February 2017

Kashka Kornelak . Riviera International, Monaco
"I have been a member of Club Vivanova  for over three years. The club offers its members and guests excellent opportunities for networking in and around Monaco. And not only in Monaco, but also in Berlin, Prague, Warsaw, Barcelona and more. The events are very well managed with excellent menus and venues and every year, better and better - so everyone just has a great time together! Bradley Mitton started the club many years ago and has great experience in what works, his commitment to quality is outstanding, making sure each guest is looked after and every whim cared for. I highly recommend the club to anyone who enjoys elegant nights-out meeting other interesting, international business people." February 2017

Ernst Jan Zantingh . ZANTOS Interiors & Exteriors
“I have been a member of Club Vivanova since the club's launch in Monaco and what makes me highly enthusiastic about Vivanova is that each time I attend an event, I have met both new friends and interesting business people in different ambiences. Each event is like a small party in a stylish venue where you can talk in a relaxed atmosphere over a wonderful glass of Bradley’s Shiraz.” February 2017

Nahid Levy . Private Member, Monaco
“I would like to thank Club Vivanova sincerely after being an active member for one year. I have lived in Monaco permanently for ten years and I am a member of many clubs, however I find Club Vivanova the best of all. From my experience, the expertise and dedication that Bradley Mitton shows in organising excellent events with wonderful food combined with special wines at unique locations with friendly, international clients is second to none. And I can see that the club really helps people and companies to expand their social and business contacts. I hope to be a part of your continued success into 2017.” January 2017

Sam Leal . Private Banker, Barclays Monaco
“My wife and I joined Club Vivanova in May last year shortly after moving to the South of France. Thanks to the club, we have had numerous great nights out organised by Bradley Mitton and his team. We have also met many interesting people and have been to some fantastic locations. With all of the functions, I have found Bradley to be very professional and well organised. I look forward to attending more in 2017!” January 2017

Dominique Freulon . The Riviera Insider
“Thank you Bradley Mitton and Club Vivanova for the exceptional events that you are organizing at sensational locations on the French Riviera with such fabulous wines!

Natalia Langsdale . Bright Creativity Marketing & PR Consultancy
“I recently joined Club Vivanova following the incredible success of this ubiquitous club over the past months. With host-extraordinaire Bradley Mitton at the helm, each event is meticulously organised with amazing flair and attention to detail. It is a delight to mingle with like-minded guests and to each time walk away having learnt something new while sampling New World wines and exquisite accompaniments, all hosted at a variety of unique venues along the Côte d'Azur. To top it off and as a serial networker myself, Bradley goes all-out to make sure you feel welcome as a newcomer and takes time to introduce you to contacts that can be of interest. If you haven't already joined, then be quick to sign up to this group of international movers and shakers to indulge in all that Club Vivanova has to offer.” December 2016

Anastasia Zakarlyuka . MOHAKO Magazine Marketing Director
“Thank you Bradley, and the entire team of Club Vivanova. We always enjoy your brilliant events that are flawlessly managed. The food is always excellent and the selection of premium wines and Champagne is awesome.  And the service during the Club Vivanova events could not be better.  Many readers of MOHAKO joined your club and they make a special effort to tell us just how impressed they are with the events and the venues chosen by you. And some of those people are not easily impressed! Your successful networking events are not only enjoyable at a business level but they are the best as an overall social experience in Monaco and on the French Riviera. Bravo!” December 2016

Nina Anuar . Owner . Sweet & Handsome Batik
"I would like to say a big thank you to Club Vivanova for their excellent professionalism in hosting the Sustainable Batik Silk Art Exhibition on the 29th November 2016 at the Wine Palace Montecarlo. Bradley Mitton's dedication and event organisation really made an impression and helped make the evening a great success. A big thank you to the Wine Palace for their excellent hospitality and the wonderful venue. A great job and surely just the beginning as we are preparing for another adventure in the near future with the club." November 2016

Sara Palmer Husse . Creator and Founder of Lumity Life, London
"Club Vivanova has been responsible for my two best nights out this year." June 2016

Ivonne Torres . International Abstrast Artist
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for organising my art exhibition at the recent Club Vivanova gourmet lunch at the Château de La Chèvre d’Or in Èze-village. I had a great time and really appreciate your professionalism and work ethic with your amazing team. You are building a great number of fans through my social media contacts. I happily sold some art at the lunch and the event attendees loved my collection. I would definitely like to work together with you again. Wish you great success.” May 2016

Paul Coleman . Director, Carlton International
“Having attended the Club Vivanova gourmet wine degustation dinner at the Cannes Mougins Golf and Country Club with Bradley Mitton, we experienced a well-executed event, with fine food and well-selected wines and interesting fellow guests from companies that are relevant to what we do at Carlton International. Carlton has been dealing with prestige properties on the Cote d’Azur for over 20 years so the Club Vivanova Luxury Lifestyle Gala on the 12th March in Monaco offers perfect marketing exposure, valuable networking plus of course, great food and wine. We look forward to enjoying a fine evening,” February 2016

Devin Smith . Owner . DTS Classics, Nice, France
"I attended my first Club Vivanova event as a guest and was immediately impressed by the detailed organization and diversity of the attendees. This has proven to be par for the course, as each new event complements the last and I have since then joined the club. Bradley Mitton provides an environment fostering natural introductions and discussions amongst attendees. Within the first two months, these networking events have provided me with numerous professional and personal contacts. Ultimately, DTS Classics looks to Vivanova as a key partner in the marketing of our unique classic and exotic cars, while enjoying amazingly beautiful surroundings. We are delighted to be a VIP Partner for the forthcoming Luxury Lifestyle Gala on Saturday 12th March in Monaco" February 2016

Martin Smith . Owner . AngloINFO Monaco
“My wife and I recently bought the Franchise for Angloinfo Monaco and we needed to partner with an organisation that could introduce us to the business community in Monaco. We were introduced to Bradley Mittonn of Club Vivanova and attended a few of his events which we found were well run and attracted a good range of business contacts for our business. We then partnered an event with Bradley and achieved what we had set out to do - meet business people from Monaco in a relaxed but professional environment to promote our business. We will recommend his services to anyone who is in a similar situation to us as he delivers on what he promises to achieve.” February 2016

David Gregory . Director – Senior Private Banker . EFG Bank Monaco
“I have recently joined Club Vivanova and attended my first two events. Both were very well organised at incredible locations with high quality food and wine at very sensible prices. I attend many networking events in Monaco but these have been by far the most interesting due to the diverse group of interesting people in attendance. Bradley Mitton is the perfect host and not only ensures the event runs smoothly, with great attention to detail, but also effects introductions to other members whenever it is appropriate. It was a very good decision to join Club Vivanova and I will attend as many future events as possible. Club Vivanova is just what is needed in Monaco and the Cote d’Azur.” February 2016

Lama Shaath . . Nice, French Riviera
"I have been attending Club Vivanova events for almost a year. They are the best, most stylish and classiest events in Monaco for making new contacts, socializing and improving your wine knowledge. Bradley Mitton is an excellent host and he is very passionate about what he does. The events are diverse, educational and interesting and they are managed at a very high standard, which is great so I am never bored. I really enjoy the club's first Friday of the month event at Modjo Monaco with Christopher Gallas, it is a beautiful place with healthy organic food and the best warm and welcoming service, I look forward to the next one. I have even ordered a wine selection that Bradley suggested with a wonderful Pinot Noir, the wines are excellent and the bottles are equally good to use as special gifts. I personally recommend Club Vivanova; finally someone is offering a variety of stylish and elegant events with refinement, flair and flavour. For those people who have a busy life schedule, you don’t have to worry about thinking where to go or what to do for socializing and business networking, Club Vivanova is the answer." November 2015

Andy Newman . Deloitte . Prague
"I have been attending Club Vivanova events in Prague over the past four to five years and these have always been fantastically organised. Club Vivanova has provided members and guests with the perfect opportunity to experience some of the best restaurant locations in Prague, while at the same time enjoying fantastic wines courtesy of Mitton International Wines, and expertly hosted by Bradley Mitton. No one event is ever the same, however, you do get the same people coming back time and time again, which only goes to show how fantastic these events are; with the latest event at the newly renovated Spices Restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental being a complete sell-out, not to mention being worth every penny! This was the first year that I have signed up for membership and I will certainly be looking to renew for 2016, when there will hopefully be some new venues to experience and some more excellent Australian wines for us to get acquainted with. Keep up the great work Bradley!" October 2015

Brigitte Abidaoud . Monaco
“It was pleasure to meet "Bradley Mitton".  The events are really well organised with great company, fabulous wines, fantastic food and amazing people from around the world. I'm happy to be a member of such a wonderful club and I wish it great success..” October 2015

Ali Darwiche . Canadian Embassy, Warsaw
"I attended my first Club Vivanova event in October and it was fantastic; both the venue and the setup were great, a Presidential Suite and a cozy seating arrangement set the right mood. Our host, Bradley, was not only very knowledgeable about the wines but also communicated that knowledge very well. It was a great educational experience learning about and sampling some fine wine paired wonderfully with amazing food. As well, it was an opportunity to meet some very interesting people from different places." October 2015

James Pouliot . 19Rivoli Photography . Nice, French Riviera
"I really think Club Vivanova events hit a sweet spot in the South of France. They are fun and enjoyable in a friendly atmosphere. The dinners, degusutations and parties are a great opportunity to network with people, but without feeling like you are at a boring networking event. I was attending Club Vivanova events before I became the club photographer and I am always looking forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new members. Bradley Mitton is very knowledgable about new world wines and has introduced me to brands and labels that I would never have been able to find on my own. For wine lovers and friendly faces, I can't recommend anything better than Club Vivanova." October 2015

Russ Morgan . Chairman, Expat Advisory Worldwide . Nice, France
"Thank you Bradley Mitton for your professional help in promoting our brand in Europe. My team and I have thoroughly enjoyed the Club Vivanova events that we have attended from Monaco through to Warsaw and the quality of the venues, menus and service has been top class! I have personally enjoyed the selection of wines that I regularly purchase from Mitton International Wines and as expected, the quality and variety is always fantastic. We look forward to working closely with Club Vivanova for many years to come, as I truly believe that being a partner at your events has helped our brand awareness. Your international gourmet dinners and degustations attract the quality of person that we are looking to take on board in relation to wealth management." October 2015

Martin Banbury . London, UK
"Thank you so much for a really enjoyable day up in St Paul de Vence at Alain Llorca. How you managed to arrange the classic car show out the front we’ll never know! The whole trip was very well organised and the group of people you pulled together were well suited. Well done! I wish you massive success with Vitamin Vodka!" October 2015

Robbie Regan . Ex-WBO World Bantamweight Boxing Champion
"One of the best nights of my life.." . Monaco, October 2015

Natalia Langsdale . Young Professionals in Yachting, Monaco
"I came across Mitton International Wines and Club Vivanova for the first time while organizing a wine tasting event for the Young Professionals in Yachting Monaco association at the Yacht Club de Monaco. Having heard whispers about Club Vivanova's success from existing members, I thought it might be a good idea to try the club in a joint-event with our young social yachting members and what a success it was! The evening began with a wonderful presentation of selected and fine New World wines by wine connoisseur-extraordinaire himself, Bradley Mitton. This was followed by a 'blind' wine tasting and attendees had to guess each wine's origin, grape and year. As the evening progressed, needless to say new friends were made and a deeper knowledge of oenology was gained. Hooked by this experience and keen to try out the club as a guest, my taste buds were aroused by a gourmet tasting menu accompanied by further premium wines organised by Bradley at the Golf and Country Club Cannes Mougins in late August. Fantastic art matched with luxury partners worthy of the occasion were presented along with a distinguished guest list. We stayed until the very end with my husband and enjoyed, literally, every single and last drop of wine and fun! I find the Club Vivanova events refined with a sophisticated touch, adept to anyone and everyone who appreciates fine wine, food and fun company. A breathe of fresh air brought to the Côte d'Azur and hopefully to stay for good! Thank you Bradley for spicing up the area with your charm, wit and connaissance!" September 2015

Mario Maccario . Senior Banker, EFG Bank Monaco
"I have been living in Monaco for almost 30 years and I have attended many clubs and social get-together events and most of the time they are boring evenings with superficial people, no fun, just expensive drinks and food. Then Bradley Mitton arrived. When Bradley came into the local scene, I became one of his first Club Vivanova members, impressed by his hard work, expertise and savoir faire. I have attended many events, some of which have been truly memorable to me and I have never been bored or disappointed. Club Vivanova is a big PLUS for the International community in Monaco and in a way I wish it could remain a little bit "confidential". Now we know most of the people who attend the events, all interesting and positive people with whom we enjoy great food and wine. Some have become very good friends indeed. I sincerely wish Bradley great success and encourage him to keep on working sincerely, with passion and with his smile (remembering always to serve quality wine). Even my son, while spending a year in Berlin, told me how amazing Bradley's events were there! Thumbs up Bradley! Grazia Mille! Ci vediamo presto.." September 2015

Roel Van Kuijck . Blue Tree Massage . St. Paul de Vence, France
Club Vivanova offers me great opportunities to socialise with interesting people from all over the world. Each event is different and original. The club events are also a perfect way to discover trendy restaurants, exquisite hotels and beautiful locations. Bradley Mitton immediately makes you feel comfortable and is the perfect host. He is an expert in creating a relaxing but stylish event. Furthermore, his knowledge of wines is outstanding, his presentations are fun and interesting as we savour some of the best New World wines available on the coast. I can really recommend to anyone who would like to broaden their horizons and meet great new people, to become a member of Club Vivanova. It is the perfect way to enjoy life, Côte d’Azur style!" September 2015

Barbara Brudenell-Bruce . Vida8 Events . London / Monaco
"I’m a long-term fan of Bradley Mitton and I think it’s high time I wrote him a decent testimonial! First things first; I like Bradley, I like wine and I like good company. Put those ingredients together and you’ve got Club Vivanova. What I like about Bradley (apart from the pleasure of his company) is his great taste and understanding of people and wine and his amazing work ethic and attention to detail. He insists on the highest standards and it is crucial to Bradley that people come away from his events with a great sense of both privilege and value, appreciating that they have been enjoying the best of things while getting a great deal at the same time. What I like about the wine events, apart from the way they mix well with people, is being introduced to great new wines by a real connoisseur. The same goes for people; and Bradley really delivers on both fronts. Wonderful events with wonderful people in wonderful places and so beautifully organised that it appears effortless. People come to Club Vivanova because they appreciate all these things. I know from the Monaco events that they also come because they feel part of a great club.  My club for single professionals is also about networking and friendship, often over wine and it’s no surprise that I chose Bradley as my event partner in the South of France. Viva Club Vivanova!" August 2015

Louise Clark . Monaco
"I think I'm pretty blessed living on the Côte d'Azur and leading a lifestyle that I (and most of my friends) love. I get to enjoy a lot of wine; some of it great, some of it barely quaffable. And so to my delight, when I started to attend Club Vivanova events, Bradley Mitton introduced me to a range of new,  really interesting and quality wines. And when you join a wine club, you would expect that, right? But what most surprised me was the calibre of the people who I have been introduced to at these events; their diversity, their differing interests, backgrounds, careers and various life experiences. This has been exceptional and I'm now fortunate enough to be able to call many of these new acquaintances my 'friends'. I find that the most interesting attribute of many of the attendees at the Club Vivanova events is that they all have something interesting 'going on'. I have met some very cool people indeed. New and interesting wines mixed with dynamic and intriguing people. What's not to love? Well done you, Bradley.." July 2015

Justin Mathews . CEO HCA group, Prague
"Bradley Mitton consistently delivers top class events with Club Vivanova and I always try to attend in the different locations that I cover and travel to frequently in Europe. The venues never disappoint and they are well attended by a discerning group that enjoy premium wines, gourmet food and Bradley's special touch of hospitality. Bradley is a true host who ensures these special gourmet wine evenings are enjoyed by all. I'd strongly suggest to keep Bradley in your Rolodex. " July 2015

Daniela Popescu . Beausoleil, France
"For me Club Vivanova is about mingling with high calibre people from various backgrounds and different parts of the world who live on the French Riviera or happen to be passing by. When I joined the club in June 2014, my close friends were surprised since I am not a big wine drinker. Then they understood, seeing me attending all the Club's eclectic events spanning from fancy bars and restaurants in Monaco or Cannes, to exciting weekends in St. Tropez or luxurious beach lunches and boat rides. I travel alot for business and when I come back home, I am always excited to attend Club Vivanova's next event to see my old friends and make new ones. My social life has significantly improved on the Riviera since I joined the club, and I have to say that Bradley Mitton always manages to gather us in new beautiful places and to keep us all as part of the same circle. He is the soul of Club Vivanova, the brains and the heart behind it, and that is a guarantee in itself for us that he will continue to attract new and interesting people." July 2015

Ton Diekman . Monaco
"Bradley Mitton has managed to create an enterprise where his wine events are promoted with and involve other niche-market businesses, such as sculptors, bespoke tailors, artists, great chefs, boutique wine producers, yachts and other interesting entrepreneurial ventures. Bradley brings together sellers and buyers and successfully connects people by continuously hosting his events in beautiful, inspiring and relaxed environments. Club Vivanova is becoming increasingly popular and no one wants to miss any of these great events. Well done Bradley, you found a true supporter in me." June 2015

Anna Taylor . Monaco
"As a Kiwi living in France, I was delighted that someone was at last drawing attention to some of the excellent wine selections that New Zealand and Australia have to offer. I attended one of the very first Vivanova events in Monte Carlo, and have been a convert ever since! Bradley Mitton has been doing a sterling job promoting these excellent wines throughout Europe, and the fact that so many first-class hotels and bars now stock them only goes to prove their popularity. The Club Vivanova occasions have continued to grow in reputation and are often now sold out - and with good reason as they are always a fun event at a premium location, with a great mix of people to mingle and network with. Through Bradley's excellent connections with some of the most chic bars & restaurants, the elegance of the evenings often belies the affordability factor. Can't wait for the next one!" June 2015

Antonio Ducceschi . Regional Director, Sales & Marketing Europe, Fairmont Monte Carlo
"I joined Club Vivanova a few months ago and have attended some of their events. Initially, due to curiosity and because I am a wine lover. The events are well organized, good value for money and a great occasion to try new wines from small or less well-known winemakers but moreover Club Vivanova offers very good networking opportunities. The profile of people attending the events is extremely international and diverse with a common passion, good wine, and a desire to meet new people. I found the events an excellent moment to make new connections and Bradley is very good at facilitating introductions particularly with new people. I would certainly recommend these events and Club Vivanova to those who love great wine and great people." June 2015

Liné Ringtved Thordarson . Aarhus, Denmark
"I have had the privilege of being a member of Club Vivanova for some time now and have participated in many great wine tastings, gourmet dinners and art events in Cannes, Nice, Monaco and Berlin. Not least the amazing Luxury Lifestyle Gala at the Fairmont Monte Carlo last March 2015 with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, where I had the honour of exhibiting my bronze sculptures ( At all of these events, Bradley Mitton has surprised again and again with his professionalism, his wine knowledge, his enthusiasm and with the way that everything is organized to the last minute detail. I have met so many amazing people from all over the world at the Club Vivanova events and I particularly love the warm and fun atmosphere Bradley manages to create and the excellent wines he presents. It is always a pleasure to work with Bradley but also to be a guest at the various evenings. I can highly recommend becoming a member of the club.” June 2015

Annina Kraft . Myannika, Eze
I have been living on the French Riviera for over a decade and I have found true and lasting friendships nevertheless I was delighted to discover how many more fun and interesting people were out there when I joined my first Club Vivanova event almost one year ago. During the event, Bradley Mitton presented my fashion brand MYANNINA and it was a great success. Bradley truly knows how to get a great group of people together to enjoy evenings of fantastic wines and gourmet cuisine. The diversity of these Club Vivanova events offers something for everybody and I am looking forward to attending many more fun events in the future." June 2015

Bjarni Breidfjord . Luxoria, Nice
"Since it's launch in Monaco, Club Vivanova has drawn a diverse and international crowd to their events. Club Vivanova provides elegant wine pairings at exclusive restaurants, casual get togethers and everything in between so you can find an event that suits you. Regardless of the venue, the fact remains that you will meet interesting people in a friendly atmosphere with excellent wines. These events are amongst the best on the French Riviera." June 2015

Vanessa Welsby . ZE-BRAND, Prague
"If there are any particular events in Prague that I love the most, then they are the Club Vivanova gourmet evenings. For business, it is a fantastic opportunity to network without pressure. On a personal level, the events give me the opportunity to enjoy a charming host with truly wonderful wines, accompanied by fantastic food courses at some of the most beautiful locations in Prague. In the future, I hope to join some of the events farther afield in Bradley's portfolio of forever expanding destinations." May 2015

Liam Forde . Monte Carlo, Monaco
“Great night, lots of fun, met new and interesting wine lovers like myself.  Wines superb, food great and hospitality at Le Loft awesome.  Will be back!” May 2015

Suhani Lata Balram . International Love Foundation, Valbonne
"Attending Club Vivanova events in the South of France has been a wonderful experience of everything I love; good food, excellent wines and an international crowd of dynamic business people. I love meeting the wine-makers and hearing about their journey in the business. It has been a great pleasure to be a part of such a wonderful club that hosts elegant boutique events at top locations. We look forward to many more future events to come. Definitely my style, Viva Club Vivanova!" April 2015

Anna Rockall . Monte Carlo, Monaco
Vivanova events are always fun and busy, whether it’s dinner in a top restaurant or a cheerful wine-tasting mingler. Bradley’s knowledge of wine and passion for his subject is infectious. We emerge from his evenings a little wiser… and a little merrier… and with a few more new friends every time. Viva Vivanova!" April 2015

Marjolijn Tiel . Beltship Management Limited, Monte Carlo
“I joined the event in Cannes after being part of many of the Monaco events. The hotel kindly offered a good rate to stay the night so no need to be concerned about driving after all the wine…and the hotel room was magnificent. From the welcome Champagne at the bar to the Shiraz that accompanied dessert all the wines were fabulous and so was the food. Both accompanied by very attentive service. Difficult to pick a highlight as it would be impossible to choose between the crab cake, green asparagus, scallop with lobster bisque and the magnificent very chocolate dessert. All combined with unexpected but perfect wine choices.” April 2014

Sarah Kate Johnson . Warsaw
"My partner and I recently attended the Warsaw launch of the twelve at the Hotel Bristol. The event was hosted by Bradley Mitton, who provided excellent insight into and history of all of the wines that we tried. All of the wines were Aussie Shirazes, paired with an excellent series of dishes, to make a tasteful and extremely enjoyable meal. As huge fans of New World Wines, we are very happy to see Mr. Mitton set up his business in Warsaw!" March 2013

Catherine Bollet . Linklift Berlin
"We had our first dinner for the twelve with John Ellis, and we had a wonderful time. John is a great story-teller! It was so nice to find out how he became a winemaker in Australia. The location and the food were also amazing, well-paired with the selection of wines suggested. A great fine dining evening altogether." March 2013

Martin Levey . Levey & Jung s.r.o., Prague
"Great evening , good company, fab wines." February 2013

Richard York . Bird and Bird, Prague
"An exceptional opportunity to meet an amazing winemaker and sample some of his hard to get vintages which were beautifully matched with a top end degustation menu. The evening represented one of the best value fine dining experiences I have ever had in Prague." February 2013

Peter Wojtusiak . Chapman Taylor, Prague
"Prague had the honour of kicking off the twelve dining experience with guest expectations high, and it certainly did not disappoint! The combination of the impressive setting of the private dining room at the Mandarin Oriental, the personalised and attentive service, a customised menu by the chef matched with a world class selection of wines which were introduced by the vintner himself, in addition to a cosmopolitan mix of guests made for an unforgettable evening." January 2013

Vince Harney . Lordship Estate, Prague
"A great evening of sumptuous cuisine with fine wines in a fantastic cellar environment with excellent company and hosted by the informative and interesting John Elliss of Bellvale with Bradley Mitton. It was certainly a great pleasure to be among people who really enjoy and share their passion of wines." January 2013
