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.

Like wine cultivation, though, there is an art to fine wine investing. Wine valuation is a critical component of the investment process. You need to know precisely how much your wine is worth and when it will be most valuable on the market to optimize profits when it’s time to sell.

2018 was kind to Bordeaux winemakers, and the harvest that year yielded several exquisite wines for collectors. For Château Haut-Brion, this vintage is well on its way to being considered a classic.

This guide to both vintages will illuminate the differences between the 2018 Château Haut-Brion and the 2018 Château La Mission Haut-Brion so that you can make an informed decision on which wines to add to your collection.
In a year that became infamous for historical curveballs, it is perhaps only fitting that the 2020 Burgundy harvest surprised us, too. Between pandemic-related predicaments and an exceptionally early harvest, this year’s vintage could easily have been a disaster. However, while the quality of this vintage will be somewhat variable, the grapes remained remarkably healthy, and the wines should impress even the most skeptical connoisseurs.
The 2020 Bordeaux harvest, much like 2020 itself, was subject to a bit of chaos. The harvest itself arrived earlier than expected and weathered everything from March frosts and thunderstorms to heat spells and long droughts. Vintners adapted on the fly to integrate COVID-19 precautions and testing procedures into their everyday operations.
And yet, at the end of the day, the 2020 Bordeaux harvest report is a hopeful one. The wines are expected to be high quality, if somewhat variable—a happy surprise for winemakers and wine collectors alike.
