Viniv - Become A Bordeaux Wine Maker


Berry Bros. & Rudd, one of Britain's oldest Wine and Spirits merchants, has seen plenty of innovation in its 316-year history.

In yet another first, we have elected to become the exclusive UK and Hong Kong agents for Bordeaux-based VINIV, which offers customers the opportunity to produce and bottle their own barrel of extraordinary wine.

With our long-standing pedigree in the Bordeaux market, we recognise that VINIV has unmatched access to some of the region's most prestigious appellations, as well as the expertise of its foremost producers. The chance to make your own fine wine is, we believe, a remarkable way to develop your appreciation and understanding of one of life's greatest pleasures.

Gary Owen, from our Fine Wine team has visited Bordeaux to see the vineyards, taste the fruit, meet the winemakers and find out more about what makes VINIV such an incredible experience. Read the account of his journey here.
