How we started

Christian and Carl were once neighbours in London and shared the same interest in many things including finding wines that punch above their weight.  Leaving the city behind them, Christian and family moved to south England, while Carl and family move to south west Germany, they put words into action and started to source wine from international auctions in small volumes.   Then they started to dabble in en primeur and are dealing directly with the a couple of vineyards. Every wine offered to MaxiMembers has been personally tested by one of them or occasionally by another family member.  Before they knew it there was a strong demand for their wines and as a result they decided to make that leap to forging out a livelihood and creating MaxiVinos.

Our Philosophy

Any one who knows either Christian or Carl can tell you that they both have a nose for a bargain and they know how to drive a hard bargain but most importantly they both enjoy sharing what they have learned or gained.  They get a kick out of sourcing the wines with incredible value and then passing on that value to others. They are focused on that price quality relationship that enhances that drinking experience considerably!


Based on their philosophy MaxiVinos wants to maintain this family and friends style club.  In order to do this they need to limit the amount of members to ensure they can continue to provide fresh offers on a monthly basis without faltering on the quality and value that they have always supplied.  They also work with the on trade market where their advice and assistance in sourcing wines has been in demand.  To find out more about our memberships or on trade please go to the sections on MaxiMembers and On Trade respectively.

“We thrive in finding fine wines that people can enjoy and know they are getting great value too.” Christian Mathies

“I grew up in a family where finding bargains was nearly a passtime. We shared our stories and bargains. Bargains does not mean cheap but great value for money is this is what keeps this job real and fun.” Carl Williams
