A wine investment company headed by BBC Apprentice runner-up Tom Gearing has launched an online service so wine investors in the UK can check the value of their wines.

The online service, provided by Cult Wines, based in Ham, is free and will enable users to track the value of their holdings against the current market price.

Cult Wines director Mr Gearing said: “The launch of the online portfolio management service is an exciting moment for us at Cult Wines.

“It is the next stage in our digital development offering a portfolio management service to all UK wine investors to access and manage their portfolios in a time efficient and hassle-free way.”
