Sam Brooks founded the company in July 2011. He has always had a passion for wine and its production. Whenever he can, Sam will spend his time travelling the world and experiencing, discovering and enjoying all the diverse and delicious wines our world has to offer.
After a successful career in the recruitment industry, a decision was finally made to quench his thirst for wine into something with more body. In 2009 Sam was hired by a fine-wine merchant/brokerage in the City of London and by the end of 2010 he had become their most senior and successful trader. In June 2011 Sam sought pastures new and took the herculean leap to start his own luxury drinks company: Vintage Acquisitions was born! His raison d'être - to provide the finest service in London and the UK where knowledge and enthusiasm are at the core.
