The wine world is steeped in tradition, and Westgarth Wines respects its enduring history and practices. For this reason, we only sell wine by the case, and always in its original packaging.

About Alexander Westgarth
Alexander Westgarth’s road to fine wine brokering was an interesting one.
As a boy growing up in Hampstead, London, he exhibited multiple talents: he was a young violin protégé as well as a top class athlete, representing England in her National Under 19 Basketball Team. While life was good, he was eager to learn about the world beyond the U.K. His curiosity brought him to 30 countries before the age of 20, when he began his tenure as an English instructor in Asia where he taught for nearly two years.
Upon his return to England, his newly-minted appreciation for diverse cultures – including their unique and diverse wine offerings – was ripe. Taking job at a British asset management firm, he spent the next several years learning about investment-caliber wines and how to service this luxury asset’s discriminating clientele. Westgarth was a quick study, and he soon began developing a reputation as a smart, savvy advisor to serious, globally-based wine investors.
After years of consulting for other organizations, Westgarth decided to combine his love for wine and his talent for architecting successful investment strategies. The result was Westgarth Wines, headquartered in Los Angeles with a satellite office in London. In only a few short years, the company has put its stamp on the fine wine market landscape, servicing an impressive, rapidly growing roster of investors across the globe and managing millions of dollars in wine assets.
A discerning businessman and a first class oenophile Alexander Westgarth is a hands-on leader, overseeing his company’s operations from offices in both Los Angeles and London. With business interests in England, the U.S. and continental Europe, his approach is truly one of international sophistication, blending his acumen for smart, profitable luxury wine investing with his continued passion for the beauty of the vine.
