The dream of having your own wine cellar – seven steps to a professional wine collection

Do you like to end your day with a good glass of wine every now and then?  Do you take pleasure in offering your friends and family to share one of your best, well-tempered wines with a delicious meal? As a discerning wine enthusiast, you’re probably already aware of most of the benefits of a professionally put together wine collection. A well-structured wine cellar not only gives you the ability to offer the right wine to suit any occasion; it also demonstrates your passion and specialist knowledge.  In addition, your personal wine collection means that you’ll always have the right wine at hand to give as a gift.  Did you know, by the way, that wine can also represent a fantastic investment?  If your good palate is backed by a sense for wines with potential, properly stored wines can allow enjoy substantialinvestment returns after a few years. Just like finding the right property, the search for a good wine is alsoa challenge in itself. With Engel & Völkers and the family firm of Carl Tesdorpf, you have two highly skilled partners to support you.

The Carl Tesdorpf Wine Cellar Service offers professional support in building your own wine collection. Skilled, professional advice from Carl Tesdorpf Fine Wine’s experienced wine experts saves you the effort of searching through different catalogues and offers, allowing you to build an individual wine cellar, tailored to your personal preferences and requirements, with minimal fuss.

For example, you can benefit by buying wine early – as soon as it is released on the market – for a significant saving over a later purchase, all the while secure in the knowledge of the wine’s provenance.  Similarly, you will have a partner at your side to support you and advise you in relation to the correct way to store the wine, the optimum age to drink the wine, and any other questions that may arise in relation to your personal wine cellar. You will therefore soon be able to enjoy the pleasure and pride of offering the first bottle of wine from your own, professional wine collection.

Seven steps to your perfect wine cellar, together with the Carl Tesdorpf Wine Cellar Service:

Step 1:  Define your goals and desires.
Are you a connoisseur, a collector, or an investor in wine? Perhaps all three aspects have inspired you to build your own, personal wine collection.

Step 2: Discover your personal wine preferences.
There’s little point in buying highly rated wines if you don’t enjoy drinking them.  We get to know your taste through personal discussions, accompanied by a wine tasting session.  In addition, we analyse how you drink wine,while you remain in control of the budget.

Step 3: Shortlisting of wines and creation of your personal collection plan.
Guided by your wishes, we allocate a proportion of your collection to each wine category (drinking wines, collection wines, and investment wines) and take further details into consideration, such as origin, grower, vintage,bottle size, etc.

Step 4: We create an individual offer.

Step 5: If required we work on your offer and make any further changes required.

Step 6: The wines aredelivered to create your individual wine collection.

Step 7: Ongoing support, as we keep an eye on the market and notify you:
- as soon as interesting opportunities to enhance your wine collection appear;
- whenever something relevant to your wines occurs, such as when there is a new, positive assessment;
- or whenever market developments provide a good opportunity to sell selected wines from your collection.
