WINEforTALENT is a club of talented and sophisticated decision-makers who successfully develop all aspects of their business and personal life with a passionate outlook.

For those who are passionate about everything they do, passionate to discover the most beautiful and exciting things you can find on earth.
WINEforTALENT is here to bring you one of the best things man and nature can produce together : Wine. The best wines that you can find on earth: the Grands Crus Classés (GCC) from the Bordeaux region.

Almost as old as civilisation itself, wine was first described in the Bible with Noah as the first man to drink wine – he was even given to drinking a little too much! Wine then went on to become the noble drink of the Jewish people.

During Greek antiquity (5th and 4th centuries B.C.) and Roman antiquity (3rd century until 5th century A.D.), wine became the drink of gods symbolized by Dionysos and Bacchus and therefore the drink of civilisation in the ancient western world.

Dionysos and Akme

The first wine-drinkers

The Roman Empire greatly developed the vineyard regions of what is now France and especially the Bordeaux and Burgundy regions.

This development continued with the coming of Christianity to Europe, especially as wine is the symbol of the blood of Jesus Christ and is used in religious services. This is one of the reasons why wine consumption spread all over Europe during the Middle Ages. Another reason, and not the least, is that wine is good and people loved it!
For these reasons the English imported it from France as they were unable to produce it themselves in sufficient quantities.

Wine Way

From Bordeaux to London

The history of wine in the Bordeaux region and why this region became so important is directly linked to the history and civilisation of the region itself. When the future king of England, Henri Plantagent married Alienor of Aquitaine, so started more than three centuries of English rule in the Bordeaux region (from the mid 12th century to mid 15th century).

Thousands of merchant ships travelled from Bordeaux to London; by far the biggest maritime traffic Europe saw in medieval times. These ships carried so much wine that the unit used to measure a ship’s capacity soon was measured in the number of wine barrels it could hold. This unit is still used today.

THE GCC (Grands Crus Classés) WINES

From Antiquity, throughout the Middle Ages up until Modern times in Europe, Bordeaux wine producers have strived to develop the quality of the wine of their region. Bordeaux is now considered to produce the greatest number of truly exceptional wines with the Grands Crus Classés (GCC) wines being unequalled. Among the 9,068 Bordeaux Châteaux wines, there are only around one hundred Grands Crus Classés.

Why start a fine Wine collection ?

- Simply for a pleasure that can be shared with family, friends, and business partners. You will regale your guests at birthday parties, and wedding and business banquets.

- As a long-term gift for when your children reach adulthood.

- As an investment. The en primeur GCC wines you can acquire through WINEforTALENT increase in value at an average rate of 1% per month for 36 months after acquisition.

- If you keep your wine even longer, then the effect of rarity can increase its value even further.

- Wine can be delivered directly to you or you can choose to leave the wine to mature in dedicated warehouses in Bordeaux (France) or Geneva port-franc (Switzerland) in a perfect environment for the conservation and maturing of wine. You can then decide to sell part of it, or consume or sell all of it.
