Where the world’s finest wines meet the world’s finest customers The fine wine concierge service Wine Source brings fine wines and spirits to private yachts and residences, anywhere in the world. Buying fine wine and spirits can be a daunting process, requiring an investment of time that is scarce. Furthermore, it can present risks: ensuring the provenance of the wine, and therefore its quality, is not straightforward. The secret is to use the services of an expert, someone who has close relationships with the world’s best wine producers; someone who works by understanding how wine fits into your lifestyle and who can provide a global concierge-style service to source and supply it for you, wherever you are in the world, on board your superyacht or at home. Fresh thinking, simplicity and reliability The team at Wine Source offer exactly that kind of service: “Our approach is simple: we will source the wine that our customers enjoy. We are here to listen and advise, without ‘pushing’ wines from stock. Instead, we create an unpressured, flexible and tailor-made wine buying experience.” The wines and spirits supplied by Wine Source are destined for the tables of many discerning customers both at home and aboard their private yachts. The company provides a bespoke cellar service, supplying yachts and residences around the globe when they need exclusive wines, offering access to the rarest wines and spirits in the world, and delivering them globally. Wine Source also provides bespoke gifting of fine wines and wine dinners. Today, the company is the fine wine partner of choice for leading sommeliers and hotels in London and Singapore, including London’s iconic Connaught Hotel, where Head Sommelier Hugues Lepin explains: I have worked with Wine Source Group since they first started in London and the company has now replaced all my other fine wine suppliers. They give a very personal service, the quality of the bottles we receive is always outstanding and the prices are very competitive. I would recommend Wine Source Group to anyone and not only for top wines; they are specialists in sourcing and can find anything with impressive efficiency. Provenance assured In today’s world of fine wine buying, provenance is the most critical element in assuring the quality of wine. Close relationships with top Châteaux, Domaines and producers of fine wine allow Wine Source buyers to find the wines that will suit their clients perfectly. They source wine direct from the Châteaux and in certain cases, have secured exclusive distribution relationships with producers. Take, for example, the exceptional Domaine Prieuré Roch, by an exceptionally talented young producer from Burgundy. These wines are already recognised as some of the most desirable in the world. This commitment to providing a unique, handcrafted service requires an international presence. Wine Source has experts in London, Paris and Singapore, with offices in Shanghai and New York set to open in 2013. Wherever you are in the world, you will encounter the same open-minded, charismatic and professional approach on which Wine Source prides itself.
