Fine Wine Plan FAQ's
How does it work?
Choose whether to build your cellar for drinking, for investment or for a mix of both. Tell us any wine preferences you have or our team can help you to specify your choices. Decide on your monthly investment level (from £50 per month, however, the greatest benefits are enjoyed from £100 per month. There is no cap on a maximum monthly investment amount). Agree your monthly payment date and you’ve already started to build your cellar.
Why build your own wine cellar?
Building a regular portfolio of wine for drinking, investment or both, gives you regular access to the very best wines and service from Mr.Wheeler.
You’ll be able to discuss your choices with one of our wine professionals who are there to advise and guide, make choices on your behalf or assist you in the way that you prefer.
Investing in wine is fun, interesting and you’ll expand your wine knowledge and interests. If you’re building a cellar to enjoy drinking, then it’s the best way to get the delivered conveniently as and when you decide.
Where will my fine wine be held?
Mr.Wheeler wine cellars are held in a specialist bonded wine warehouse which means they are fully insured, secure and both temperature and humidity controlled.
What goes in to my Fine Wine Plan each month?
What goes in to my Fine Wine Plan each month? You can decide what goes in to your cellar with the assistance and guidance of our wine professionals, or we can choose on your behalf based on our understanding of your preferences and objectives.
How can I keep track of my wine and its value?
You can check in at anytime with your dedicated wine professional or simply log in to the new Portfolio Tracker to be kept informed of drink dates, market valuations and a plethora of additional wine data, directly linked to your personal reserves.
How do I get my wine delivered for drinking and how long does it take?
Just give us a few days’ notice to remove any stock stored in our UK warehouse. If there is any duty and VAT to pay, we’ll take this at the time you order wine for delivery. Wines are sent on a
secure, insured service, and will arrive on a mutually agreed date. Delivery, facilitated by our partners at London City Bond (LCB) is charged at cost.
How can I trade my wine and realise my investment?
If you decide there are wines in your cellar which are either surplus to requirement, or were bought for investment and you’re ready to sell, we can create a bespoke valuation based on the current market. We can make you a ‘cash offer’ for your stock, or broker it on your behalf and take a small commission. You’ll have total transparency of the process, and funds will be quickly transferred to you once a sale is complete.
