Let’s talk about wine investing

Published: 7th February 2022

 In 2018, a bottle of 1945 Romanée-Conti went up at a Sotheby’s auction. By the time the auctioneer’s gavel hit the block, the winning bid was $558,000. 

 

Why would anyone pay the equivalent of seven Tesla Model Xs for a single bottle of wine? Because wine consistently outperforms other alternative assets. 

 

As the saying goes, wine gets better with time. Add in the scarcity created by consumption, and certain wines can command a six-figure price tag. Vinovest makes it possible for ordinary investors to earn a slice of these handsome returns. 

 

The biggest barrier to fine wine isn’t price. It’s access. Vinovest unlocks accessibility so that anyone can invest. 

 

Vinovest is a wine investing platform built around its customers. It takes care of sourcing investment-grade wine, professional storage, insurance and custody solutions, and ongoing buying/ selling recommendations. 

 

The company is operated by a veteran team with experience in the fine wine and technology industries. That includes Master Sommeliers, wine directors at three Michelin star restaurants, and technology leaders from Apple, Bytedance, and more. 

 

Endorsed by Warren Buffet, fine wine has 13.6% annualized returns over the last 15 years, with virtually no correlation to the stock market. Wines from the most prestigious wineries regularly appreciated more than 200% over a 5-year period. 

 

Why invest in wine?

 

Fine wine is gaining steam as an investment option. It offers a low correlation with the traditional markets, steady returns, and bond-like volatility. Savvy investors are increasingly turning to investment-grade wine to diversify their portfolios. 

 

Strong Performance 

Wine as an asset class has yielded a 13.6% annualized return over the last 15 years. Even with the global stock markets experiencing record-breaking highs, they can’t keep pace with the fine wine market. 

 

Low Correlation with Traditional Markets 

Wine isn’t influenced by inflation or interest rates. Its value is driven by the decreasing supply of vintage wine. That’s why during the 2008 financial crisis, the S&P 500 fell 38.5%, while the Liv-Ex 1000 (a fine wine index) fell only 0.6%. 

 

Tangible Ownership 

Investors only own stocks, bonds, and mutual funds on paper. That’s not the case with fine wine. As the sole owners, you can keep, sell, or drink your investment!
