Meeting Alex - The Founder of Bacchus Concierge

October 2021


Meet the man who knows his wine… Alexander de Valle

Fill your glass with your favourite tipple, sit back and relax, while we find out more

about Alexander de Valle – the man behind Bacchus Concierge.

With over a decade of experience in the wine trade, including as a fine wine sales

manager at one of the nation’s leading wine suppliers, you would have expected

Alexander to have always been involved in the trade. However, his background is

one full of variety, with notable stints in Her Majesty’s police force and the British

Army, where a tour of Afghanistan saw Alexander posted to Helmand over a two-

year period from 2012.

In fact, it was a chance invitation to a wine tasting that piqued his interest and led

Alexander to pursue a career in the fascinating world of fine wine. Developing his

passion, knowledge and experience in key roles with prominent wine suppliers,

Alexander has put his exceptional palate and his natural ability to build relationships

with others to use. Well respected by those throughout the wine industry,

Alexander’s affable personality has allowed him to connect and associate with some

of the most admired vineyards and wine producers around the world.

Passionate in talking to others about fine wine, Alexander put some unexpected free

time (resulting from furlough during the Covid-19 pandemic) to good use, launching

Bacchus Concierge in the summer of 2020. Designed to give clients something a

little different from the norm, Bacchus Concierge set out to offer a service for those

who are unsure about their wine preference but want help to seek the best value for

their wine taste.

From monthly subscriptions starting from as little as £100 per month, to bespoke

services designed to help those looking for fine and rare wines from around the

globe, Alexander’s knowledge and contacts, along with Bacchus Concierge’s

independent status make this very much possible.

So, for someone who has such a passion for fine wine, what is Alexander’s favourite

tipple? Well, like choosing your favourite child, it would be too difficult to choose just

one, so Alexander has four:

 Chateau de la Tour Clos Vougeot Vieilles Vignes 1998 – A delicate red hailing

from one of the most famous Grand Cru red wine-producing regions of

Burgundy.

 La Cassetta Valpolicella Ripasso – Fantastically full bodied, this wine

combines layers of dried fruit for an intense and flavourful drink –

delicious!

 Pieropan Soave Classico 2019 – The first estate to make single-vineyard

Soave, the Pieropan estate have achieved a fresh, expressive wine with notes

of white flowers and marzipan, with hints of pastry on the finish.


 Kings Favour, Sauvignon Blanc 2019 – Great value with tropical notes that

urge you to pour another glass. One of New Zealand’s best.
