UK Vintners have a long and storied reputation in the world of mine merchants because of the fact the first wine experts were located in London in the Middle Ages and have remained in place ever since.
The top vintners in the UK have enjoyed a strong reputation and are now found throughout the country from Scotland through to Wales and England; the English wine industry has now become one of the fastest growing in the world as the changing climate of the world leaves them with a growing reputation for producing flavorful and award-winning wines in a variety of styles.
The tradition of vintners coming together as wine experts and looking to come to a consensus about which of the latest offerings from different vineyards and winemakers offers the best value for money and chance of future profitability. The Society of Vintners, which includes wine merchants like ABV Wholesale and Wild’s of Oldham uses its expertise to develop new areas of support for each other; one aspect of the life of UK vintners has always remained the same and is the small groups of experts that come together to sample the latest offerings from regions or specific varieties to purchase.
Wine investing is a new area of the industry for UK vintners who are now seeing a growing number of investors hoping to purchase a bottle or variety that may rise in value to become an impressive part of any investment portfolio. This new area of the industry is a relatively new one, but can yield impressive returns when a bottle is chosen that will mature over time to be as impressive as the Pichon Baron 1998 that is coming to maturity in 2016 and is recommended by UKV PLC as one of the best buys for both drinkers and investors.
