Fine wines for high net worth individuals
Our main focus is providing a taste of the finer things in life.

AVU SA is one of Europe's leading fine wine merchants. With over 400'000 bottles of the world's finest labels, coming from the most prestigious wine regions, like Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Tuscany, Piedmont, as well as from the New World, like Napa Valley, and Barossa Valley, we guarantee to have the rarest wines and bottle formats available.

Operating on a global level, we have some of the largest allocations from the most exclusive estates. Thanks to our comprehensive, international vinous network, made up of producers, private collectors and international merchants, we only offer wines of impeccable provenance and of the upmost quality.

At AVU, we believe there is a better way to collect wine. A more intimate, less time consuming way, where clients can purchase exactly what they want, when they want. We're obsessively passionate about it, and our mission is to help wealthy individuals and sophisticated wine connoisseurs build their perfect collection. Our typical clientele consists of busy CEOs, presidents, entrepreneurs, wine collectors and investors, who literally don't have the time, and that's where we come in. We take care of everything, from purchasing advice to delivery directly to your cellar – the only thing you have to do is enjoy the bottle

About Us
Frankly, we think rare wines should be treated as fine, exclusive pieces of art. Therefore we do not have an ecommerce shop nor publicly displayed pricelists. We work strictly on tailor-made offers and individual customer requests. Our 360 ° fine wine service ensures each and every client is matched with their very own senior wine consultant, that helps to manage interesting wine opportunities, the client's collection, the delivery and everything in between. Our active clients also receive pre-arrival offers and first priority on their favorite wines.

Thanks to our strategically placed warehouses and professional shipping partners, we can efficiently deliver our wines almost anywhere in the world. We can also deliver to private clients across Europe, due to our European subsidiary in Spain (AVU Wines). We have several modern temperature and humidity controlled warehouses located in Stabio (Switzerland), Bordeaux (France), London (UK) and China. Our headquarters is based in Sorengo, very close to Lugano in Switzerland.

AVU SA was founded by Fabio Cattaneo, who was awarded Switzerland's Best Swiss Entrepreneur in 2010 by the Swiss Economic Forum, the most prestigious award for entrepreneurs in the country. Today, the company is led by Fabio and his team of highly experienced professionals whom all of which have held management positions in the sector.
