    Testimonials

    “I decided some time ago that I had had enough of the ups and downs and general uncertainties of the Stock Market and such similar resting places for my limited capital. Instead I invested it in fine wines with Vin-X. The excellent results have more than justified that choice, as has the high level of knowledge of the fine wine market and the shrewd purchasing advice that I have received from my portfolio manager. I could not be better pleased.” - Nick Galtress
    “I have just taken some profit from my wine investment. Vin-X recommendations, service, documentation is of a first class order. I would not hesitate in endorsing them to any potential wine Investor, new to the market or experienced.”
    - Stephen Hepburn
    “It is self-evident that investing in “passion investments”, like classic cars and fine wine, is a no-brainer. If you have a genuine interest, where you can gain a lot of enjoyment and investment acumen, why wouldn’t you put your money into it?” - Rod Spollon, Managing Director, Greyfort Group
    “I have enjoyed my seven years investing in fine wine with Vin-X so far, whether purchased in bottle or en primeur, and the anticipation to see if the price growth is worth more than originally anticipated. The Vin-X team is very efficient and, headed by my Portfolio Manager Jamie, has consistently come up with good results for me. Well done keep up the good work.” - Ian Harris
