How and when do I earn returns on investment?

Two primary factors drive returns in the fine wine market: maturity and scarcity.

Most investment-grade wine takes 10 to 15 years to mature. An older vintage of a certain wine will be more valuable (and flavorful) than a younger one. Clients who buy early and hold their wine for a long time should see better returns.

There’s also a finite supply of investment-grade wine. Once a vintage is bottled, there is no way to produce more. As other people drink, the remaining bottles become rarer and more expensive.

Thanks to our experts we help you identify these factors and keep you informed to make the most of them.
