Hello, today we are here to talk about wine, a sector in which many spend but decidedly less invest.
The equal of goods refuge as gold, precious stones and works of art, is to be considered as an alternative investment to the financial markets and, obviously, the brick.
To enter a little in numbers, that at the bottom does not lie and constitute the only true discriminating choice, we can say that from the 1950s to today the fine and rare wines have expressed annual average yield of 15%.
This means that the market in continuous development, highlights the forecasts of growth in the medium-long term rather high in the face of a low volatility.
It is a duty at this point to distinguish investors in two categories that identify as a Wine Lover and Wine Investor.
The first concerns the enthusiasts and lovers of wine in if wanting to build a cellar with important pieces, both in order to obtain a gain but, above all, to have available large bottles to be uncorked and, why not, to give.
But the “game” does not end with the purchase of the product, in fact, we must also have a wine cellar with the proper conditions of temperature and moisture to keep it at best (d0n’t think even remotely to expose it above the fireplace or in the cabinet of the grandmother who is in the hall…).
Beautiful category, I like it very much…
The second is less poetic and bucolic, but the tip to the pure financial speculation independently by personal taste in labels.
The objective is the economic yield and an expert in the sector can certainly advise you on what labels and vintages point.
Obviously the strong demand versus the limited offer requires great attention in the choice but the trends of the reference index for the sector (Https://www.liv-ex.com) are absolute growth.
To give you an idea of what is worth the “moment” current of the wine in the financial field I will tell you what has made some days ago the Pinault family (owner of the chain of sales and production of luxury goods PPR, Samsonite, Palazzo Grassi in Venice, etc..), through its holding company Artemis.
A surprise, deflecting the rumors that spoke of investment funds or not well identified buyers in China, the Pinault bought the legendary and almost millenarian history, Clos de Tart in Burgundy for a digit that is said to be between 200 and 250 million euros. Taking into account that it is 7.53 hectares of vineyard, I would say that the revenue it isn’t bad.
An incredible price also for the Burgundy, which makes almost pale that paid just three years ago by its new neighbor of the vineyard and always rival, Bernard Arnault of LVMH that for the neighboring Clos des Lambrays (almost a monopole of 8.66 hectares) has paid the fee of 101 million euros.
In other words, whatever the wheel on which you want to bet, let yourself be supplemented by a professional to avoid hurtling into potential firms which could prove to be not only in bankruptcy from an economic point of view but also from the palate.
The recommended combination of today is :
