ALTI WINE Exchange is the world’s first open and transparent marketplace for retail clients, institutions and brokers to trade fine and rare wines, as tokens around the globe. ALTI’s business starts with the wine producers allocating part of their rare wine production through the release of so-called Initial Bottle Offerings (IBO) to the ALTI Wine Exchange.

The extremely rare Moscatel Superior 1911 IBO is very significant because more than rare, is UNIQUE.

José Maria da Fonseca priced the initial bottle offering for the Moscatel Superior 1911 at 1300 euros per bottle. Only 50 bottles are available at Alti Wine Exchange, because only 50 bottles of Moscatel 1911 are in existence.

“ALTI Wine Exchange makes investing in wine seamless, cost efficient and a well-informed process,  as buying and selling shares online”, commented Tom Dorsey, founder of ALTI Wine Exchange“.

Participants acquire the wine in a form of blockchain-based digital tokens (each token representing one specific bottle of wine) provided directly by the wine producer José Maria da Fonseca and stored in the secure and specialized Bordeaux City Bond. ALTI Wine Exchange provides buyers with the ability to both trade wine tokens freely on the ALTI platform and eventually redeem those tokens into actual wine, taking possession of the wine assets at the time of the wine investor’s choosing and simultaneously removing those from the ALTI exchange for offline trading or private consumption.
