When you’re passionate, you have an unerring memory,’ says Wine Owners founder Nick Martin. A tech investment guru and former MD of a global marketing company with a serious love of wine, he reels off such a long and detailed list of the best wines he’s drunk so far this year that Spear’s has to ask him to stop. ‘The reason we built Wine Owners was because the world was full of wine brokers and merchants but nowhere for collectors to call home,’ Martin explains. Founded in 2011, Wine Owners is a trading exchange and an online platform for managing and tracking your wine collection. It also provides white-labelled technology platforms for HNWs who need help managing their extremely large wine collections.
