At 82, our mission is to make fine wine the undiluted pleasure it should always be. To ensure this, we provide a full and comprehensive service of independent advice and expert assistance, where your needs and desires always come first.

We named our company after a superlative vintage because, like 1982, we bring all the elements into alignment to offer you the greatest products and services obtainable, enhanced by the best advice available.

Ours is a business based on absolute integrity, from our carefully nurtured relationships with the owners of legendary domains and the providers of optimum storage to the entirely transparent service we offer you.

WHO WE ARE

We named our company after a superlative vintage because, like 1982, we bring all the elements into alignment to offer you the greatest products and services obtainable, enhanced by the best advice available.

At 82, we are dedicated to creating the optimal environment for you to taste, buy and drink great wines that suit your individual palate. We have the years of experience and expertise in dealing wine and building fine wine collections to guide you through the maze that the wine universe can be; and while our connections are exemplary, we are entirely independent, so our advice and guidance come with no strings attached. Our sole concern is your satisfaction.

Whether you are interested in entertaining for business or pleasure, exploring the world’s great vineyards or drinking in the privacy of your homes, our personal service, dedication, expertise and transparent business practices will smooth your journey into the world of wine. Our impressive contact base gives us access to some of the world’s best wines, while our network of partners enable us to store them locally and deliver them to you at your convenience. We will use our extensive knowledge to offer you the best possible wines from exemplary sources, carefully authenticated by us, as independent experts whose only responsibility is to you, the client. And we will provide you with the paperwork to ensure you are fully apprised of all transactions, all the way from vineyard to glass.

“The best that the world of wine has to offer”

We offer exciting opportunities to broaden and deepen your understanding of this fascinating world, in the vineyards or in exclusive and beautiful locations reserved for our clients’ use, and we carefully tailor every event and purchase to your personal or professional requirements. However, if you simply wish to relax, secure in the knowledge that every bottle you open will suit both your tastes and the occasion, you can rely on our experts. Because we know that there are as many ways to love wine as there are great wines to love.

Wine is one of life’s greatest pleasures. We invite you to experience 82: the best that the world of wine has to offer.

• Creating exceptional experiences you will never forget.

“These principles shape everything we do.
Each is integral to our ethos and at the heart of our commitment
to every one of our clients.”
