We began offering fine wines to investors in early 2006. Back then we concentrated solely on the best clarets from Bordeaux because historically the clarets in general - and the first growths in particular - have shown the strongest returns of all wines in the form of capital growth.
The last few years have seen the market broaden, and the best wines from other areas are making our clients extremely good returns. As a new client, however, we would be inclined to go back to our roots and recommend to you the claret that best suits your unique requirements.
You can invest in wine from as little as a few hundred pounds, but to give yourself the best chance of making considerable returns we would recommend testing the market with between £3,000-£5,000.
At this level we would be able to recommend a very fine claret indeed - and remember, your first investment with us is free of fees or margins up to £3,000.00. Why?
Because we are confident that you will be so pleased with your first investment that at some point in the future you will invest with us again.
First of all you need to remember that fine wine isn't, whatever people may tell you, a guaranteed investment. It's true that the top wines generally out-perform (especially over the medium-to-long term) just about any asset class out there, but the value of any wine, no matter how prestigious, can go down as well as up.
However, there are pretty sound reasons why fine wines - especially the top clarets from Bordeaux - are as reliable as any investment and generally more lucrative than most: reasons to do with limited supply, history, antiquated French laws and, let's be honest, good old fashioned snob-value.
If you are considering an investment in fine wine we have a lot to offer you. The first step is to register for an account with us. This is quick, simple and free. By doing so you will gain access to detailed market information, the fine wine platform and the interactive performance charts of over 7,000 wines.
