Working with the world’s best winemakers

We have built trusted relationships over the decades with many of the world’s iconic estates, based around a mutual passion and respect for fine wine.

“At Chateau Lafleur, we choose our ambassadors based on trust that is built over time. We are very pleased to include 1275 in this small group of partners chosen to represent our wines.”

“I have known Denis Houles for many years and have seen first-hand the care and effort he takes in enabling great wines to achieve their full potential. 1275 is the embodiment of these values.”

Tailored just for you

The best fine wine collections are assembled through careful upfront planning. Our goal is to reduce the complexity and act as your partner in navigating this rich and fascinating world.

Discovery

A 1275 fine wine collection begins with a conversation. By listening carefully to your interests and objectives, we can design a collection that is perfect for you.

Once a framework has been agreed, you can easily build on it over time.

Refining

With our initial findings in hand, we get to work on a more detailed proposal. This includes assigning percentages to your preferred wine regions, and allocations for drinking, wealth preservation and growth, or as unique legacies for your loved ones.

Curation

This is where your collection begins to take shape, as we tap into our network of relationships with leading estates and fine wine vineyards to source wines that align with your preferences.

By shortening the supply chain, we are able to acquire your wines at competitive prices, thus optimising the value of your collection. 

Ongoing review

A fine wine collection should never stand still. We continue to review and provide recommendations on your collection as new opportunities emerge and your tastes and interests evolve.

Why now?

The impact of climate change, coupled with growing interest in collectibles, is creating fresh urgency to collect and preserve the world’s great wines before it is too late.

A TIME CAPSULE FOR THE FUTURE

The fine wines being produced today are likely the greatest ever made, due to advances in technology and enhanced winemaking techniques. However, rapidly warming climates mean that the individual personalities of many wines are changing and may be transformed entirely in years to come.

This creates a window of opportunity to capture and preserve the great wines of today, so they can be enjoyed long into the future.

A VALUABLE STORE OF WEALTH

A fine wine collection can serve as a secure and diversified store of wealth.

With their finite supply and growing status as luxury brands and alternative investments, today’s top wines are becoming rare and valuable collectibles. In parallel, growing demand from new and emerging parts of the world means this trend is likely only to accelerate in years to come.

“Investors should buy real assets – like fine wine – as inflation reaches a secular turning point.”
