Leoni Runge from Everledger explaining the new link up
between them and Chai Wine Vaults.
Previously Everledger was providing on-line provenance
On Friday evening there was a brief presentation at 67 Pall Mall, a fashionable wine club in the centre of the West End of London – just a stone’s throw away from Berry Bros & Rudd, of new system from Everledger for providing an ‘immutable’ on-line record of high value wine. This is a partnership between Everledger and Maureen Downey’s Chai Consulting/Wine.Fraud.com. Maureen is one of the world’s leading experts on wine counterfeiting.
If this on-line passport becomes widespread for fine wine, it could also provide wine investors that companies, who have been persuaded them to buy wine as an investment, that this actually exists. This ought to make frauds perpetuated by companies such as The Bordeaux Wine Trading Company and Bordeaux Fine Wine Ltd, who failed to buy wine that their investor clients bought. Unfortunately this is unlikely to be foolproof as fraudsters target the elderly who may well not be aware of this new system.
