Welcome to Twaites & Jones Fine Wine Investments

An introduction to Twaites & Jones Ltd
FROM DIRECTORS; CHRIS TWAITES & OLIVER JONES

Welcome and thank you for visiting our website. Our aim is to offer you an insight to the world of Fine Wine Investments, as well as demonstrating our commitment and explaining the service available to you. Whilst Twaites & Jones Ltd is a relatively new company (now in our fourth year of trading), both Oliver and Chris have been trading the world’s finest wines for over 10 years and are recognised throughout the trading community for our high level of service and reliability. We are one of only 400+ (globally) full trading license holders of the Liv-ex (London International Vintners Exchange) and it is estimated that the majority of the world’s trade in Fine Wines is concluded on their platforms. We are also members of the WSTA (Wine & Spirit Trade Association) here in the UK.

The journey of Twaites & Jones started in 2003. Based in southern Spain, we began supplying high quality wines from that region to local restaurants and hotels as well as to merchants in the UK. After two years of successful trading we explored new roads in an attempt to satisfy our thirst and passion for quality – these roads naturally led us to Bordeaux.wine investment

During this time it became clear that the rising demand for top Bordeaux as an investment vehicle was difficult to ignore. Using our established networks we began to lay the foundations for a consultancy service within this sector and soon put this into practice. This valuable experience of the ergonomics within the wine investment arena allowed us to extend our contacts and friends in every aspect of the industry.
Our aim was clear – to bridge the gap between the primary and secondary market for the investor. We knew that this was possible and something we believed in. Confident we had created a model that benefited the investor, we established Twaites & Jones Ltd in March 2010. Our consultancy service now provides a competitive edge not only to other reputable merchants, but also to our private clients who benefit from access to endless opportunities.
