Patrick O'Connor


Since becoming one of the wine industry’s youngest CEOs at 40, Patrick O’Connor has kept the online marketplace thriving with Fine + Rare, allowing users to buy, sell and store their bottles around the world seamlessly. Its ability to track and scour the marketplace to source and gauge demand is a unique one. ‘This gives collectors incredible access,’ says O’Connor. ’It’s our job to make sure they can search, while we curate to offer them the wines that they’re looking for.’ The website boasts a strong accounts team and a network of agents, reservists and traders. Clients can be assured the advice is impartial: Fine+Rare doesn’t hold any stock, and has no store to facilitate brand promotion.
