You’ve made the decision to invest in wine. You have done your research. And you have got your funds together. Now for the fun part – laying down your cellar.
For the budding collector there are several ways of buying wine and the market has changed dramatically in the past few years. Some are very hands-on, others reduce wine to an abstract investment where you can have investment exposure and never see a single bottle.
Perhaps the least efficient is the old way of paying a visit to your local wine merchant and buying a few bottles for your portfolio. Some traditional wine merchants still exist but, these days, there are a plethora of options from wine brokers, auction houses, investment funds and even fintech in the shape of peer-to-peer trading platforms.
