Independent. Connectivity. Comprehensive. Progressive. Powerful.
VINEX is an independent digitised trading exchange owned by Vin-Exchange Group Limited (CN 494552) with offices at Level 1, 1 Mayfair Place, London W1J 8AJ; and is supported by experienced in-market representatives across regions and markets.
In 2014, the VINEX team of specialists recognised an opportunity to introduce new technology adding value to the wine trading industry at large.
In 2015 this proprietary technology was launched integrating the unique processes and security required of a comprehensive trading exchange.
VINEX is progressive and has since undertaken a major platform upgrade to manage increased trading activity, expanded into the grape trade and introduced a complementary bottled wine exchange in 2018.
