The global wine industry has recently been going through some major changes as wine becomes a high quality investment for many who wish to develop a portfolio of investments that takes in a range of different options. UK vintners have always played a key role in the global wine industry as they have always looked to link collectors and wine enthusiasts in the financial center of London with the vintages and varieties they can enjoy or purchase as an investment that will mature over time; the Internet now allows the vintners of the UK the chance to show their skills and wine products to the people of the world on a larger scale than ever before.
UK vintners sit at the head of an industry that sees their home country consuming and investing in wine at record levels as wine is often thought to be immune to the volatility of the stock market. The use of the Internet has allowed vintners in non traditional areas of the UK to grow and become important parts of the industry, such as those who are members of The Society of Vintners. The skills of the vintners of the UK, such as Scotland’s Dunns Food and Drinks, and Hills Prospect come together under the banner of The Society of Vintners to join groups specializing in different varieties of wine to make sure the best options from all over the world to bring to customers who now largely purchase wine online.
The role of UK vintners is to work with their customers to make sure they are aware of the best wines to suit their needs for drinking or investing. A&B Vintners is one of the top wine merchants in the UK after launching in 1998 and has achieved this position through an innovative use of new technologies; A&B founder, John Arnold, originally worked on London’s financial markets before deciding to bring his love and knowledge of wine to his own company in the expanding sector for UK vintners. John Arnold has taken technology to heart and uses his blogs and email contacts list to bring information about the best new vineyards and maturing vintages to consumers from around the world who can store their wines with his company if an investment is looking to be made.
