Superyacht owners and charter guests now have unrivalled access to the world’s most sought-after wines. Leading supplier of fine wine to superyachts, Fine Wine Works, has handpicked a selection of the world’s fine and rare wines: introducing PURE.
This prestigious collection is unique in today’s wine provisioning market since these wines are actually in stock and available for delivery to yachting clients – from the very start of the season. These wines are the very best in their class, a tag that is backed up by both critics scores and trading prices on the secondary market.
“We know that many of these mythical wines are often at the top of the wine requests on guests’ preference sheets,” comments Helen Brotherton, Fine Wine Work’s owner and lead wine specialist, “however given the short lead-times in yacht provisioning, wine suppliers usually struggle to source them as they are only produced in finite quantities. Not only that but, even if your supplier manages to find them, the wines are delivered in far from optimal drinking condition for the client as they have come rushed from fine wine merchants’ cellars all over Europe – or beyond, to arrive in time for the charter”
In response, the fine wine team at FWW has decided to build a very special selection of the world’s most sought-after wines – starting with Bordeaux and Burgundy, the boom region in wine investment circles. These are wines that connoisseurs want to drink and investors want to have in their collections. Now, the yachting industry has access to these exclusive wines from its temperature controlled cellars on the Côte d’Azur.
Another point of distinction for PURE is that FWW has only sourced vintages that are ready to drink – neither too young nor too old. “I am constantly surprised at how young some of the fine wines offered to the yachting market are,” Helen continues. “These blue-chip wines have defined drinking windows and to drink them too soon – especially at the prices they command – is a real shame. As the experts who wine crew trust for advice, it is our role to only provide them with wines in optimal drinking condition.”
All PURE wines come from trusted sources and bottle shots are available on enquiry.
During the season, stocks will be updated weekly.
“It’s been really exciting hunting for these super top-end wines for our yachting clients. A dream job!” comments Helen.
