'Fine wine is something that ties us all together,' says Michael Doerr, managing director of OenoGroup. The firm's rapid global expansion, spearheaded by Doerr, affirms his statement with offices now located across the world including the UK, Brazil, America, Italy, Spain, and Portugal.
Oeno is an investment advisory service where clients are carefully guided in regards to collecting wine and diversifying their investment portfolios. The company harnesses the skillsets of financial analysts and wine experts to ensure that clients receive both quality advice and access to prestigious wines.
It describes itself as 'true pioneers in fine wine investment trailblazing a path through under-the-radar fine wine regions and revolutionising the way collectors interact with this unique market.'
Michael Doerr, Oeno Group's founder and CEO, has been passionate about luxury assets and wine from a very early age, starting his first business buying and selling high-performance sports horses at just 14 years of age. Mr. Doerr went on to start and manage three luxury asset companies across the world and taking Oeno Group from a money-losing start-up to a multi-award-winning firm with the world's leading fine wines.
Founded in 2015, Oeno Group is a personalised wine investment advisory service that adopts a contemporary approach to wine investment, born out of a vision to make the fine wine market accessible to all regardless of their exposure to or experience of the industry. A leading innovator in the fine wine investment sector, Oeno Group has an impeccable wine sourcing team, headed up by a Master of Wine, Justin Knock MW.
A novel feature of Oeno's offer is access to its extensive network of top restaurant and trade clients (OenoTrade) and luxury central London boutique (OenoHouse), which provide profitable liquidation pathways for investors during their investment lifecycle and offer wineries the opportunity to supply their best wines at their apex of maturity – services which other wine investment companies are unable to match.
Oeno's sourcing credentials are underpinned by a diverse team of international wine experts, from France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Australia, and South Africa. Our varied expertise offers us excellent connections and insights into wineries from all over the world. Recently joining the company as Ambassador of Italy is Gabriele Gorelli MW, the first Master of Wine based in Italy, whilst in Spain we work with Almudena Alberca MW, the first Spanish female Master of Wine.
Most recently, we've been awarded Best Global Wine Investment Firm and Michael Doerr received the Wine Investment CEO of the Year Award by Investor Magazine in 2022.
