Fine wine prices in 2017 could rise 14%

When is the best time to enter the fine wine market?

Woolf Sung says this is the best time to enter the wine market since 2010.

According to Sebastian Woolf, managing director of Woolf Sung Courtier en vins and the CEO of the Fine Wine EIS, the factors causing last year’s downturn were the global economic environment, a poor 2012 en-primeur campaign and a high level of sales by institutional investor funds.

He claims that market conditions have significantly improved. With lower prices it offers the opportunity to acquire more of the best stock. When is the best time to buy in any market? The bottom. With prices rising now seems to be the ideal juncture to move from traditional asset classes to alternatives such as wine and art.

‘The majority of the price falls in 2012 took place in the first half of the year. The second half saw a return to stability and, towards the end of the year, signs of a recovery’.

With a recent credit rating downgrade by Moody’s, investors in the UK are becoming increasing concerned with the loose monetary policy. Investors are looking to preserve their cash assets and fine wine is at the top of their list.

‘Like gold, wine is a physical asset, which is immune to inflation and its value cannot be eroded by the actions of governments. It is therefore likely to attract attention when inflation fears rise’.

The uncertainty in financial markets is proving beneficial to the alternative assets especially tangible assets that are of a finite quantity. In the case of fine wine each chateaux only produces a limited number of cases. Lafite Rothschild for example, might only produce 25,000 cases of their top label a year. Over time the wine is consumed leaving very few available. Provided there is sufficient demand for that wine the price should increase over time.
