Our raison d’être is to provide world-class exclusive events and 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’ to life, the Vin-X Events team creates opportunities to enjoy the finest wines in the world through exclusive experiences. Here are just a few of the experiences we offer:
Meet the world’s top wine makers, owners and producers
We organise exclusive tours and events so you have the opportunity to visit the finest chateaux and estates around the world.
We also invite the wine-makers and owners to host wine-tastings at venues in the UK, where you can taste their wines, learn about their heritage and the future plans for these iconic estates.
Enjoy world-class sporting events
We create sensational events which provide the opportunity to meet sporting heroes, attend international competitions and enjoy it all with first class wine experiences in the UK and abroad. Vin-X sponsored the first US-Monaco Celebrity Golf Competition, featuring international sports personalities including Ryder Cup France 2018 Chairman, Pascal Grizot.
Join the Vin-X team for exclusive Wine-tastings
Whether you wish to create a fun occasion for friends or family, team-building for colleagues or a client event with a difference, Vin-X Wine Tastings are the perfect way to enjoy and learn more about wine.
Learn at our Wine Investment Seminars
Learn about fine wine as an alternative investment asset and discover how to create a rewarding wine portfolio at a Vin-X Wine Investment seminar.
These events can be arranged privately for your friends, colleagues, club or association. Alternatively, attend one of our educational seminars at a venue near you.
