Our raison d’être is to provide world-class experiences connected with fine wine. Our clients own wine produced by the very best chateaux and vineyards in the world, however they choose to keep their wine in storage at specialist bonded warehouses for investment purposes. To bring that ‘investment’ alive the Vin-X Events team creates opportunities to experience the finest wines in the world through exclusive experiences as follows:

MEET THE WORLD’S TOP WINE MAKERS, CHATEAUX OWNERS AND PRODUCERS

We organize exclusive tours and events at which our clients have the opportunity to visit Bordeaux’s finest chateaux and the key wine estates in Champagne, Burgundy, Rhone and Tuscany. We also invite the wine-makers and owners to host wine tasting ‘occasions’ at extraordinary venues in the UK, where clients can taste their investment wines and learn more about their heritage and the future plans for these iconic estates.

Members of our team have worked in professional sports and associated hospitality and travel businesses.
