about us

Established in 1997, Bordeaux Index has grown to become one of the leading global fine wine merchants with offices in London, Hong Kong, Singapore and Los Angeles, as well as a rapidly growing international customer base. Our product offering covers all the traditional wine growing regions of Europe plus selected wines from outside Europe.

We aim to make the world of fine wine accessible to a broader audience, demystifying the process hence our strap line - Wine Selection Simplified. BI has promoted an unstuffy and innovative approach to selling fine wine for both consumption and investment. Each customer is assigned a personal account manager to look after all their requirements. On-line stock lists (our wine list is updated on our website every 10 minutes), daily offers, monthly newsletters and our blog, keep customers informed on an ongoing basis.

During 2009 BI introduced LiveTrade, the world's first on-line trading platform for fine wine with firm bid and offer prices available 24 hours a day. This service won us the "Innovator of the Year" award, at the 2009 International Wine Challenge

We have recently launched 'The Bordeaux Index' which is a real time index that tracks live changes in the prices of the most liquidly traded wines on the LiveTrade market making screen. Rather than pricing monthly, our technology facilitates dynamic, daily updates and will allow users to monitor the market at their convenience. It's the most transparent, accurate and simple way of gauging the market performance of Bordeaux. For the first time, investors will no longer need to base their decisions upon monthly market movements. Just as importantly, it does not require a statistics degree for interpretation. Registered users are also able to view individual price graphs for all of the wines traded on LiveTrade with data going back to 1st Jan 2008.

This service won us the "Bordeaux Specialist" award in 2010, at the International Wine Challenge.

Our recent move to new London offices with a purpose built tasting room, has given us a platform to offer more tastings for clients, in addition to regular tastings and wine dinners at restaurants around London. For individual private hire enquiries, please contact your account manager.

Michael Schuster has relocated his well regarded wine school to our tasting room. According to Jancis Robinson MW "we have long recommended Michael Schuster's wine courses as the best we know in London."

As well as wine for drinking BI is able to advise on wine investment. We employ two full time investment specialists and can carry out valuations of your existing holdings.

We offer long term storage for your wine in ideal conditions in our customer reserves with on-line access to your holdings.
