Best Wine to Invest In

The rule is to invest in the most expensive wine you can afford. The taste no doubt matters, but remember that as with all luxury assets, the cover - physical bottle in this case – and name of the producer often increases the price exponentially.

That being said, high quality wine needs some time to mature, and after it reaches its peak it can start to lose its value. A safe approach to fine wine investing is to purchase top bottles from renowned châteaux, and to do it while the wine is still young. Ideally, you should invest in wine that’s en primeur, which is wine that has been already produced and tasted but not yet bottled and distributed to global markets. By doing this you can purchase expensive bottles at relatively low prices.

You then wait for a few years for the wine to mature and for demand to grow, and then sell it for a profit. However, this approach to wine investing is not without its disadvantages. It’s quite impossible to say how good a young wine will be when it matures, so there’s always the risk that what you purchase will turn out to be a disappointment. This potential problem can be mitigated if you buy wine from a prestigious châteaux and thus have the right label on your bottles. It’s better to choose a small quantity of top bottles than a larger quantity of average bottles. The basic fine wine investment unit is the 12 bottles case.

Depending on the winemaker, expect a case to cost a few thousand pounds. Such cases, though expensive, usually represent the best investment. Note that you can also buy wine through a wine merchant some years after it is produced. This however, is not usually as profitable.
