Starling Wines was founded in 2011 by Paul Ricketts with the aim of creating a wine investment consultancy that offered a personal and transparent approach to a tried and tested market.

Since its launch, the team has assisted clients in successfully building and selling their portfolios. Having developed our expertise in this ever-evolving market, we now specialise in fine wines from across the globe and the rarest spirits.

At Starling we take great pride in working closely with our valued customers to grow exceptional fine wine portfolios. We look forward to welcoming you..

Paul Joseph Ricketts
Founder and Managing Director

Paul discovered his love of fine wine while working on high-profile events for corporate and celebrity clients. His experience and knowledge have been honed over the past 15 years and led him to start his own consultancy more than a decade ago.

Since then, Paul has helped clients to grow their portfolios and has developed a wealth of invaluable contacts in the industry. Thanks to Paul’s thirst for innovation, Starling Wines is now taking the next step in leading the way in which people buy, sell and invest in fine wine and spirits.

“I have bought and sold through Starling for several years and have no hesitation in recommending them. Their honesty, efficiency and dedication are without question. I have no reason to consider using another broker.”
