Bacchus Concierge was founded by Alexander de Valle

After spending the start of his career in both the Army and the Police, after a chance invitation to a wine tasting, Alex decided that he wanted to step into the world of wine and pursue a serious passion. Now, with over a decade of experience in the trade, Alex decided to branch out to start his own business.

Alex established Bacchus Concierge in order to bring the love and appreciation he has for wine to others and allow them to grow their own knowledge and collection using his expertise and experience.

Significance of Bacchus and Concierge

Our name, Bacchus Concierge, originates with the Greek God of wine, Bacchus – which is also conveniently a type of grape, best well known and grown in England! At Bacchus Concierge, we hope that whilst we may not be Greek gods, we aim provide you with choices which will allow you to savour and luxuriate in a similar style with your wine choices to our namesake Bacchus!

A Concierge is defined as, "someone who will make arrangements, booking a table at a restaurant, holidays and services." We at Bacchus, aim to be your personal Concierge in the world of wine. Whether it is building and collecting, finding a special bottle, or gifting for clients and friends, we aim to be your 'go-to" service for wine, offering you the highest quality advice and reliable service, allowing you to sit back and enjoy your wine.

Alex's four favourite wines are:

Chateau de la Tour Clos Vougeot Vieilles Vignes 1998

Hailing from one of the most famous Grand Cru red wine producing area's in burgundy.

Delicate red berry fruit, which evolved and changed in the glass with incredible length and precision, especially for a 20-year-old wine.

Vin de Constance Klein Constantia 1996

One of South Africa's most famous and historical vineyards and a rival to the great Sauternes in France. Named by Jane Austen, as a way to mend a broken heart!'

A sweet wine with a dark golden color that jumps out of the glass. It has notes of deep caramel, sweet tropical fruit, lemon, honey and apricot which linger on for 30 - 40 seconds after tasting

2011 Domaine De La Romanee Conti Montrachet

One of the legends of Burgundian white wine and something truly magical, that was a joy to taste! This is one of the great hidden wines. It is rarely found, but if you’re ever lucky enough to taste it, it's flavours are thrillingly layered and complex

Kings Favour, Sauvignon Blanc 2019

A great value Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. Ripe, bright tropical fruit, with a fresh lingering finish, urging you to pour another glass!

After a consultation with you - ideally over a glass of wine - Bacchus Concierge will craft a framework of labels to collect for your cellar tailored to your own unique tastes and personality. We will take into account your monthly budget, your interest in specific regions, winemakers and vintages and the overall aim for your collection.

Bacchus Concierge source wines based on recommendations from top wine critics, sommeliers and winemakers themselves, giving you peace of mind that you are only getting the very best wines on the market at the very best value.

Wines are automatically transferred and delivered to your own bonded cellar, to your own home cellar, or we can set up a bonded cellar account for you, with the help of our partners.

TESTIMONIALS

Mr Mark Humphries, Bath, UK
unnamed_edited.png

Bacchus Concierge is ideal in two situations. First, you don’t really know what wines you like and are happy for an expert to select them for you. Second, you know exactly what wines you like but don’t have the time to search them out or negotiate the best prices. There is a lot of bad or mediocre wine out there and the only way to avoid disappointment is to have an expert filter it out for you so that you get only the wines you are going to enjoy.

Which critics do you quote?

Do you give wine investment advice?


Bacchus Concierge does not offer advice on wine investment.




Where do you store your wines?


Bacchus Concierge only stores wines within a registered bonded wine warehouse, which has approved facilities such as temperature control and proper storage facilities.




Isn’t collecting wine really expensive?


If you want to collect the rarest and finest wines, it can be expensive, but with improving winemaking and skilled producers making the most out of their land, there are plenty of fabulous and affordable examples, from both new and old world, that far exceed their value, perfect to collect for the future and enjoy.




What is ‘en primeur’ or ‘futures’ wine?


En primeur (otherwise known as ‘futures’) wines are not yet bottled or ready for release. En primeur Bordeaux and Burgundy releases are not available for delivery for approximately 2/3 years after their initial release to the market.




What is an ‘in bond’ wine?


Wines bought as a future, or that have been in storage for some time, will have likely been purchased without duty tax & VAT. When and if you wish to take wines out of storage, the duty tax and VAT need to be paid to HM Customs and Excise. This payment will be processed through the bonded warehouse storing your wine. This cost is calculated at the price the wine was purchased for and not its current worth.




What are your charges?


Bacchus Concierge aims to give the best advice we can and only charge for the collation and sourcing of your wines. There is a flat 5% charge on whichever wines you choose. The fee for our Fine and Rare Wine Searcher and Drop-In Cellar services is negotiable, depending on the wines required.




What if I wish to cancel my subscription?


Whenever possible, Bacchus Concierge will attempt to provide a refund and to stop any potential orders. However, if you have begun the subscription process with Bacchus Concierge and some wines have been purchased, you are liable to pay for these labels




Where is my money kept and is it safe?
