who we are
Vinum Fine Wines have been successfully operating throughout Asia for over 20 years and in the UK since 2009, where we were previously trading as Occidental & Oriental Cellars. Our sister companies include the restaurant group Les Amis, The Whisky Library Singapore and D&D Wines.
Vinum Fine Wines works differently to other fine wine merchants. Our clients’ requests and needs come first and we tailor our offers to our clients’ specific requirements.
We pride ourselves in our personal service and attention to detail at every level of our business.
With our experienced and knowledgeable team of 50 people, who speak over 13 different languages we offer a bespoke service and a very personal approach to business. This is appreciated by our broad network of private customers and collectors, luxury hotels and restaurants, and premium wine merchants in the UK, Asia and across the globe.
We have established a reputation for stocks of excellent provenance and our clients and suppliers trust that we deliver what we say we will.
Our strong financial backing and large purchasing capacity enables us to take significant positions and keep our prices low.
We focus primarily on wines of exceptional provenance and rarity and offer a large number of wines ‘Ex-Château’. The strong relationships that we enjoy with our many trusted suppliers and producers is at the very core of our business and provides us with unparalleled access to stocks of the finest wines in the world and with perfect provenance. These relationships have been built up over many years as we frequently visit Châteaux, Domaines and European agents.
We are the agents in Singapore for some of the world's finest wines including Château Pétrus, Château Trotanoy, Domaine Leroy, Domaine Dujac, Domaine Leflaive, Vega Sicilia and Egon Müller to name a few.
In the UK our wines are stored in the temperature and humidity controlled cellars of London City Bond. In Singapore, Vinum Fine Wines has its own state of the art, temperature controlled warehouse.
We pride ourselves in only buying stock that is of European origin, refusing to buy stocks with US/Asian/Australian strip labels, or with strip labels removed. We try to buy stock with original packaging, but occasionally we may need to re-pack cases when the original cases have been damaged from extended cellaring.
We proactively source wines on a daily basis to meet demand and to add to our extensive stockholdings and our portfolio of wines is constantly expanding with new additions.
We are experts at sourcing wines, so if you are looking for wines that do not appear on our list, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will produce an offer for you.
Our shipping team will happily provide quotes to ship wines to almost anywhere in the world. We ship large volumes of stock on a regular basis and therefore benefit from very attractive freight forwarding rates which we can happily pass on to you.
Should you wish to take advantage of this service and our low rates, do not hesitate to contact email@example.com
We have our own state-of-the-art bonded warehousing facility in Singapore and our European stock is held at London City Bond’s Tilbury Docks site, under full climate control and in our own chamber with our own staff. For peace of mind, transparency and the highest levels of security, we encourage clients looking for professional storage solutions in the UK to open their own personal accounts with a specialist storage provider. In this regard we are pleased to work with Nexus Wine Collections.
Nexus is the UK’s largest wine storage service provider, managing collections with a combined value in excess of £100m, and independent of the fine wine trade’s merchants. They offer the highest service levels of inventory management and logistics across a choice of the UK’s finest bonded warehouses in order to best suit the requirements of diverse wine collectors. Vinum customers opening new accounts with Nexus receive preferential rates and we are pleased to recommend them to our clients.
