Authenticity and impeccable provenance are critical factors which help determine the market value of a particular bottle. The vast majority of our wines are acquired direct from the winery, meaning that exceptional provenance is guaranteed. In the tiny minority of cases where we purchase from auction houses or private collectors, our industry-leading Anti-Fraud Unit led by Mattia Tabacco will conduct a thorough assessment to verify the authenticity of each bottle.
How it works
Our fine wine team source top-quality investment grade wines direct from wineries all over the globe, as well as selected bottles from trusted collectors. At every stage of the process strict anti-fraud procedures are applied to ensure impeccable provenance and authenticity.
Measures used by the anti-fraud team in their assessment process include checking the glass, capsule, cork and labels against our comprehensive database using tools like electron microscopes and professional-grade UV lights.
Bottles which meet our stringent criteria are approved by the wine team and issued with OenoFuture certification. Each approved bottle is given a unique numbered label which cannot be removed as a guarantee of their provenance and authenticity.
