VINEX trading has become widely recognised as the future of wine trading
VINEX is a professional B2B global wine marketplace. A web-based trading platform for bulk and bottled wines allowing buyers and sellers to directly connect in real-time within the wine business sector.
The world wine market is large and growing. In total, more than 27 billion liters of wine are produced each year. Of that volume, more than 35% is traded B2B between producers and production intermediaries before being finally sold to importers, wholesalers, or directly to retailers.
Previously, buyers and sellers completed trades directly, or through wine agents/brokers within regions, using a conventional broking approach.
VINEX is digitally transforming wine trading, delivering a lower cost, unique business-to-business service enabling the wine to be traded without boundaries. VINEX connects trade organisations directly within and across markets, providing a more efficient, accessible, secure and lower-cost alternative.
