Wi&ne Invest & New Experts

Wine Estate BordeauxInitially Created by David, WI&NE is an association of all kinds of experts in the wine sector who bring together all their know-how to facilitate and secure your investment in French wineries and wine estates.
Good at their respective experiences, WI&NE members know your different needs at every stage of your investment project.

The answer to these multiple needs, often complementary, must take an essential element into account: buying a vineyard is not only buying a château or a land, it is above all investing on men, and on a terroir that evolves. It is also to appropriate a history that needs to be perennial thanks to a serious technical and economic model.

The international dimension of WI&NE is based on a thorough knowledge of all the aspects of the market in the five languages: English, Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish and Russian.

Finally, WI&NE has set up an ethical charter that guarantees the discretion, availability and efficiency that you expect.
