EFWines Client Testimonials
Don't just take our word for it, read what our previous collectors have to say about their fine wine portfolio.
EFWines clarity, care and consideration helped expand my wine portfolio
"I would like to thank Dominic Hall of EFWines for his continued personal advice and helpful guidance in respect of my portfolio of fine wines. With the repeated poor performance of the investment market, I was looking for something to give me a reasonable steady return for my money. I had never heard of investing in wines but Dominic has provided with me a clear understanding of this type of investment.
He has undertaken the task of being my merchant with clarity, care and consideration and helped expand my wine portfolio. I am extremely pleased with the professional level of service and have always found their recommendations of purchase opportunities and advice to be sound. I have no hesitation in recommending EFWines and their advice." -J Cartwright
Profit of 4.5% - a very pleasant and quick experience
"Having decided I needed some cash I approached my broker Ross Fisher to establish the optimum wine to sell from my collection. A buyer was duly found, returning a profit of 4.5%. Paperwork and wine transfer were completed and I received my cheque a week later. A very pleasant and quick experience. Many thanks and best wishes" -Gerald Smith
Long and succesful relationship plus a friendly approach to wine collecting
"Thank you very much Sean for the opportunity of personally meeting you, but also for your recommendations and approach to wine investments. I look forward to a long and succesful relationship" -S Kirkland
In just over two years I have doubled my money
"I would like to thank Emrah with the recent sale of my wine. I spent £2835 with EFWines and in just over two years have doubled my money. I was guided from initial stages and kept updated with my small portfolio. I was assured that the gains were tax free and was very happy to do business with them. I would certainly recommend and do further business with them in future." -A Shukla
I recommend this as a great opportunity, and have always been impressed with the helpfulness and quality of information that my merchant has provided
"As an EFWines client for a little over two years I would like to pass on my thanks to Chris Grubb who has recently provided me with a healthy return.
I had two cases of wine, and just sold one that I purchased for £3150 for £4000. So £950 profit in just a couple of years or 26% if my maths are correct. Upon requesting the sale I had a cheque in my hand in just three days. So I recommend this as a great opportunity, and have always been impressed with the helpfulness and quality of information that my broker has provided." - R Squirrell
... I have been extremely pleased with the case of wine that was recently traded for a profit of just over 95%
"I am relatively new to fine wine collecting but I have been extremely pleased with the case of wine that was recently traded for a profit of just over 95%. This is an excellent return in under 2 years when compared with stock market returns over the same period. I am grateful to Harry Downer for identifying the opportunity to realise this amount and look forward to a similarly fruitful relationship in the future." -C Harrold
The profit returned represents a considerable achievement, and I commend their efforts wholeheartedly
"This is to confer appropriate gratitude and commensurate praise for the work of Dominic Hall in securing for me a most satisfactory outcome in a recent transaction on my wine portfolio. Wine purchased by me in November 2009 and March 2010 was traded recently to return a profit of some £8000, equating to approximately 70%.
In the current economic climate this represents a considerable achievement, and I commend their efforts wholeheartedly. It goes without saying that I look forward to continuing excellent returns on the reinvested capital which has supplemented my portfolio on the advice of Mr Hall " -N Bemrose
Steady growth over a relatively short period of time
"Christopher Grubb has been very attentive, letting me know about potential changes in the market and keeping a watchful eye over my portfolio, which has seen steady growth over a relatively short period of time"- C Stowell
A remarkable success making gains of over 30% tax free
"I was contacted by EFWines in September 2008, they convinced me that fine wine was better than the stock market, so I took their advice.
This has been remarkable success making gains of over 30% tax free. My thanks to Sebastian Woolf and his team" -G Nash
2008 En Primeur sold for a considerable profit
"Thank you Dominic for your recent sale of my 2008 en primeur selection for a considerable profit.
This with a small addition made it possible to purchase a greater spread of vintage and cased variety having great potential." -R Smith
I am very happy with the profit that was made
"I would like to thank Sean Dineen for the recent sale of 2 cases Mouton Rothschild 1998 & 2008. I initially invested £6,080.00 in 2009 for the both. They were sold for £10,000. I am very happy with the profit that was made. Thanks again" -E Wilshire
Wine transactions with Dominic Hall and Jon Barr of European Fine Wines
"I have today paid the balance of £20,000 agreed as a further purchase by me from EFWines of a package being arranged by Dominic, details of which I look forward to studying. I have been doing business with your firm since receiving a series of telephone calls from Philip Moore early last year ,2010.
Guided by him I bought four cases of fine wine. One of these was sold at the instigation of Jon Barr for £4,000 . I received this money, which represented a profit of about £750, in my bank account on June 15 2011. I was very pleased with this.
Various characters from other London-based fine wine organisations ring me up from time to time trying to persuade me to sign on with them.
I tell them all I am with EFWines and happy to be so. They then try to persuade me to sign on with them as well. I firmly reject these suggestions.
I look forward to continuing to do business with EFWines.
If the opportunity arises please give my best wishes to Philip Moore with whom I enjoyed having a drink in Chislehurst last year." -M Steele
I cannot praise this company highly enough
I cannot praise this company highly enough. I expected a high standard of service from a company with the reputation EFWines has, but what has amazed me is how much they have exceeded my expectations, both in terms of making the best possible use of my collection and their standard of customer service, which far outperforms every other company I have dealt with in the past. The communication and updates I receive on a regular basis make me feel as though I have invested several million pounds with them, rather than just a few thousand!
These are no "hard sell" calls either - the guys I talk to are appreciative of individual circumstances and they really do treat everyone with exactly the same customer focused high standard of care, hitting just the right balance of being "business friendly". Nothing is too much trouble to explain and having seen what they have managed to do with the money I spent, plus having learned a lot more about this market and its advantages, I don't know why everyone with even £2,000 isn't buying fine wines and using EFWines to handle their portfolio. - M Atkinson
Thanks again and best wishes.
I'm writing to thank you for negotiating the sale of the wines I bought from EFWines in May last year: To realise a £3,000 return on an initial outlay of £8,000 in such a short space of time is very impressive indeed. - I Hunter
Thanks again and keep in touch.
Thanks for the update on my wine EFWines- I agree that it is important to have some of the 2009 in my portfolio. Being able to fund the purchase by using the profit from selling some of my other wines is very gratifying and I feel that the range is now more balanced. -Roger
Nice Little Profit
"I know I'm not a big spender, but thank you for taking the trouble to sell my case of wine and providing me with a nice little profit of £500. I also want to thank you for the speed in which you dealt with the sale and settlement." -Sheila Murray
"I just wanted to say that I appreciate your effort in keeping my wine portfolio in good shape. It was good to see such a healthy profit on my recent sale, and I am very happy to reinvest the proceeds with you - I'll be even happier if the portfolio continues to grow at this rate!" -Dr S Yeaman
Just a Quick Thank You
"I just wanted to say thanks for your advice regarding the recent sale of my wine. Even though I only have a small collection, it is good to know that I am getting the benefit of your advice." -L Walker
Truly a Liquid Asset
"Thanks for your efforts when I needed some money urgently you were able to arrange a cheque in a hurry, proving that these really are liquid assets! I was resigned to taking a loss, having only bought the cases six months or so earlier, but was pleasantly surprised to find that I had made a profit." -R Meldrum
6.5% return in 7 Months
"I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for your help in dealing with the buy-back of my two cases of Lafite Rothschild 2008, which I had bought en primeur.
It was a pleasant surprise to discover that after only 7 months I didn't just get my money back but made a small profit on top a 6.5% return after costs has got to be one of the best investments out there." -M Rawcliffe
17% return in 7 Months
"I am writing to thank you for the splendid gain achieved on the sale of Pavie 2003.
When I bought this case my intention was a medium to long term hold of perhaps 5 years, however the return of over 17% in only 7 months was simply too tempting so I decided to sell.
Thank you for your assistance in arranging the sale, and thanks also for the original advice to make this purchase.
I look forward to achieving similar returns on the rest of my portfolio!" -Michael Rouse
A remarkable result
"Just a short note to say thank you for your guidance on my recent wine purchase. A 31% return in less than a year is remarkable by any standards, even more so in the current economic climate.
I look forward to further returns on the rest of my wine portfolio." -Philip Asquith
Good Nature and Honesty
"Thank you for getting us involved with you and your company EFWines Ltd. Danielle and myself were very sceptical at first and it was only through your perseverance, good nature and honesty that we went ahead.
Our first initial purchase generated a 15% profit in 6 months, where else could you get that! Plus the incredible extra of it being all tax free! You have kept in contact regularly with us, which is what new collectors need to boost their confidence in the early stages.
We have since continued, purchasing larger amounts of some of the finer blue chip wines and already we can see spectacular returns leading up to Xmas. We also have the security of knowing if we ever needed some cash quickly you could offload some of our purchases within a week, still at a great profit because the wines we own are of outstanding quality and will always be in high demand.
You and your team at EFWines have done us proud and I would not and do not hesitate in work together again in the very near future or indeed recommending you to my closest friends and family. Looking forward to a friendly and prosperous future thanks to you Harry and all at EFWines." -Peter A Bell
A Profit of £1,625.00 in Less Than One Year!
"My wine merchant, Harry Wilkinson of EFWines, has asked me to provide a reference. I am pleased to endorse Harry and the service he has provided to me for the last two years. What appeals about his style of business is that it is not simply about buying wine from him. He also advises me when to sell my wine holdings, and arranges the sale.
On his recommendation, I made a purchase of a case of Lafite Rothschild 2000 in January last year. By December, my original spend of £3,375.00 had turned in to £5,000.00 - a profit of £1,625.00 in less than one year.
Harry has always been a helpful guide through the complexities of choosing which vintage is best, and displayed a good knowledge of the market.
I would be happy to answer any further questions you might have." -David Stott
I have achieved a 10.5% gain within 5 months
"I am writing to say thank you for the advice and guidance I have received since deciding to work with you and EFWines Ltd.
At a time when global equities are in turmoil I am very pleased to have benefited from your patient explanation of the wine market and the tax-free basis for this type of purchase even more so now that I have achieved a 10.5% gain within 5 months.
Once again thank you for your advice and the first class service at EFWines.
I look forward to a long and prosperous relationship." -Dr Jutla
I was pleased to realise a gain of nearly 15%
"As a regular client of EFWines, I was pleased to realise a gain of nearly 15% on wine that I held for only 7 months. I'm grateful to have guided to buying the right wine, at the right price, at the right time. I'm also pleased to have sold at the right time.
I had no hesitation in referring a friend of mine, who has now also become a client of EFWines." -Robert Straker
