If you’re looking to buy fine wine at a reasonable price, before it is even distributed on the market, an en primeur investment is the best choice. An en primeur investment is when you buy wine before it’s been bottled. Think of it as a pre-order. You order the newest vintage from the winery, and after two to three years (the time it takes for the wine to finish barrel aging and be bottled), the winery or retailer ships the wine to you.
Whether you’ve just inherited an entire cellar’s worth of fine Bordeaux from a grandparent, or you’re a budding wine investor wondering what to do with your first few bottles, selling wine from home is the most convenient way to profit from a wine collection. However, selling wine isn’t as easy as throwing a few photos up on an auction website and shipping the bottle off in a cardboard box to the highest bidder. There are strict laws governing who is and isn’t allowed to sell wine online, and most of the time, the average investor isn’t legally allowed to do so.
The fine wine market is becoming extremely attractive to modern investors, even those who know relatively little about it. According to Liv-Ex, fine wine assets outperformed both the FTSE100 and Dow Jones in the first quarter of 2022, and this is just one of the reasons why so many investors are dipping their toes into this market. Most of these new investors are on the lookout for wine investment companies that sell fine wine online.
Purchasing wine futures is something many investors are interested in, and for good reason. You can buy popular wines in advance (long before they are bottled and reach the market) and often at the lowest possible price. Futures are the bedrock of many successful wine investment portfolios.
There’s one question many savvy investors ask: Is it worth investing in wine? The short answer for many investors is “yes.” Buying fine wine can be an excellent way to diversify your portfolio. As one of the historically best-performing alternative assets on the market, it’s become an increasingly attractive option to investors around the globe. In fact, fine wine consistently matches and even outperforms returns from the S&P 500 year after year—and people are starting to notice.
When you think of investing in wine, you might imagine bidding on a bottle at auction or heading to a wine shop to look at whatever is on the shelf. But did you know that some of the most investment-worthy wines are sold before they’ve even been bottled? Wine futures (specifically, Bordeaux wine futures) are highly sought-after because they’re one of the best ways to secure your investments long before a wine sells out on the wider market. This is also one of the most cost-effective ways to invest in blue-chip Bordeaux.
A cult wine investment can be quite lucrative. Top-rated labels from producers like Screaming Eagle, Scarecrow, Sine Qua Non, and Dominus consistently perform well on the fine wine marketplace, often growing steadily in value over time. In this guide, you’ll learn how to make a cult wine investment with an eye toward the future.
If you’ve ever thought about investing in fine wine, you’ve likely wondered whether you’ll get a high return on your investment. It’s true that wine investment returns can be a boon, especially when you buy blue-chip wine futures that consistently increase in value over time. However, as with any investment, there’s no guarantee you’ll get a high return. The fine wine market is less volatile than most, but to see a return on your investment (ROI), you must buy early, protect the wine’s provenance, store the wine securely, exercise patience, and know precisely when to sell, to whom, and at what price.
