Following on from successful launches in Hong Kong and Singapore, we are delighted to announce the opening of our first US office, based in Los Angeles. Drawing on the experience and resources of our global network, we hope to dramatically improve the service offered to our existing US customers while at the same time offering new and exciting opportunities to the wider US Market.
As one of the world’s largest, dedicated fine wine merchants, BI delivers the most diverse and sophisticated portfolio of services available - from sourcing that special, rare bottle through to managing the largest investment portfolios. We specialise in the world’s finest and rarest wines, from cellar valuations to chateaux visits. If you can think of it, we can probably arrange it!
BI US is headed up by one of the strongest teams in the business – Joe and Jon have worked at BI’s London HQ for many years and overseen some of the company’s most important projects.
With a background in investment banking, Joe Marchant joined the wine world in 2003 and has never looked back. Setting up BI’s investment group in 2007, he’s as adept at designing large trading strategies for wine funds as arguing the minutiae of the smallest corners of the Cotes de Nuits. Frequently found these days proselytizing the merits of lesser known communes in the Northern Rhone (at least when the Burgundy runs out).
Principle in developing BI’s global broking business, Jon Roach has been instrumental in opening up new markets for clients to buy and sell their wines. Although nursing a closet predilection for heavy hitters from the southern Rhone, Jon is most happy carousing with Rioja from the 60’s and 70’s, especially when it comes in big bottles…
As for old Bordeaux - as a wise man once said, that goes with everything.
The US outpost will offer the same range of specialist services as the existing BI facilities in the UK, Hong Kong and Singapore – sourcing, broking and sales of fine and rare wines for drinking and investment.
