Specialist fine wine acquisition and investment management firm Cult Wines expects to generate record sales of around £30m this year – a 47 per cent increase on the previous year.
The company, which is led by a former runner-up on the TV show The Apprentice, was recognised for its impressive growth with the Queen's Award for Enterprise in international trade this month.
The 10-year-old firm is projecting sales of £50m by 2020, as growth is driven by increasing demand in the UK and Asia.
Since Brexit, the benchmark Liv-ex Fine Wine 100 index has gained around 17 per cent as Asian buyers snapped up cheaper wines after the value of sterling depreciated.
In the last four years, the group has seen a compound annual growth rate of 235 per cent in Asia.
Tom Gearing, managing director of Cult Wines and former Apprentice candidate, said: "It is fantastic to be recognised, and our performance over the last year has helped to cement our position as one of the leaders in the wine investment market."
Worth over $4bn a year, Gearing said fine wine is increasingly recognised as a genuine alternative asset class.
"Not only can the sector provide strong returns under expert guidance but it is an enjoyable, collectible, tangible asset that has a very exciting future."
