Welcome to the official FINE+RARE blog

Here we will share our opinions on the wine market, vintages, what we’ve been up to, what we’re tasting, as well as quarterly updates of the key events and releases that we have been involved with.

We hope you enjoy reading our blog. If you’d like to speak to us about any of the products listed, please email us or call +44(0)20 7089 7400.


We like to think we are a little bit different to other merchants. Founded in 1994, we have grown from three men, an idea and a small office in West London to become one of Europe’s largest fine wine merchants with offices in London and Hong Kong.

Our unique marketplace provides our customers with the broadest choice available anywhere – all at competitive market prices. Because of this, we remain completely impartial in our selections and recommendations, so you can be rest assured that the opinion we hold has no underlying motives other than a desire to share it with you.
