We publish the actual prices at which wines are transacted. Out platform contains over £60m of firm buying and selling opportunities in over 15,000 wines. All are available to trade in real-time.

Liv-ex, the London International Vintners Exchange, was founded in 2000 by two stockbrokers, James Miles and Justin Gibbs. It started with a group of 10 founding members in London, and a vision to make fine wine trading more transparent, efficient and safe. The founders believed that by creating an online exchange they could grow the size of the market for the benefit of Liv-ex’s merchant members and everyone with an interest in fine wine.
