It’s no secret that investing in fine wine can yield substantial revenue under the right circumstances. In 2019, for example, a private collection of over 17,000 bottles sold for $29.8 million at auction, setting a new world record—and sparking the imagination of many aspiring investors.
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.
