We work tirelessly at Bordeaux Index to provide only the very best and our awards are a credit to our outstanding team; their expertise, passion and extensive experience.
At Bordeaux Index we pride ourselves on delivering only the best wines with perfect provenance at the most competitive price. Yet, Bordeaux Index is so much more than this - our aim is to make the world of fine wine accessible to everyone and promote an innovative approach to fine wine and spirits. We are very fortunate to have been recognised and awarded on multiple occasions both for our collection of wines but also for our market leading LiveTrade platform. Here are just some of our accolades.
LiveTrade has once again, for a fourth year in a row, won Trading Platform of the Year with The Drinks Business. The judges highlighted LiveTrade's commitment to firm bids and offers bringing instant liquidity to 100s of the world's top fine wines, as well as its breakdown of market-limiting barriers for trading fine wine.
Bordeaux Index were proud to win Fine Wine Retailer of the Year with The Drinks Business this year. The judges called the platform "all encompassing", and the judges felt that the customer experience at Bordeaux Index is "unparalleled" in the market. "While they recognised that Bordeaux Index is a much bigger business than the other entries in this category, it was not its size but its achievements within the last year that they wanted to applaud."
Trading Platform of the Year is an award reflecting the ever-growing importance of online trading platforms in the drinks industry. "We are delighted that LiveTrade has once again been recognised in these important industry awards. Now the most active trading platform in the fine wine space, LiveTrade continues to see very significant growth and we expect our exciting upcoming developments for the platform to increase this further. There has never been a better time for collectors and investors to try the platform and see how we are changing the way wine is bought and sold." - Matthew O'Connell, CEO LiveTrade
For the second year in a row, LiveTrade has won 'Trading Platform of the Year' at the prestigious Drinks Business Awards. Judges were blown away by LiveTrade, “a powerful trading platform for fine wine that wowed judges for its £120m worth of transactions in the past year”.
We are thrilled to have won the Best Specialist Bordeaux Retailer at the Decanter Awards 2021, Chairman, Peter Richards MW, commented, “Bordeaux Index has upped its game lately, with a relaunched website and improved customer engagement, and remains a key reference for fans of Bordeaux, not just at the top end but also with its more affordable Merchant's Collection.”
Following the rebrand, brand new website and the launch of the Merchant's Collection, the Drinks Business judges awarded Bordeaux Index a special commendation in the Fine Wine Retailer of the year category. Also won in 2016, 2015
This particular award was brand new for 2020, reflecting the growing importance of online trading platforms in the drinks industry. Editor-in-Chief of the Drinks Business, Patrick Schmitt, commented, "While the judges acknowledged the excellence of Bordeaux Index as a fine wine merchant, it was the development of LiveTrade that they felt really deserved recognition in the past 12 months, and hence the award specifically for the trading platform element of the Bordeaux Index business. Describing LiveTrade as a 'brilliant' and 'clever' online solution for connecting stockholders with buyers, they felt it offered something new to the market, with one judge referring to it as a 'game-changer'."
The Decanter Retailer Awards recognise the very best UK merchants. As Chairman Peter Richards MW says: "The purpose of these Awards is to highlight the very best - giving you, the consumer, the inside, expert steer directly to those people offering the finest value, service, experience and range."
