Wine Investment

Investing in wine is not a new phenomenon, but it truly reached a global audience in the 1990’s and by the mid-2000’s it was a much talked about alternative investment asset class alongside art and gold. Red Bordeaux has long been the main target for wine investors with the First Growths of Chateaux Lafite, Mouton, Latour, Haut Brion & Margaux sitting atop the tree. However, as the wine markets have developed globally - other areas have found traction. We are seeing investors increasingly looking at the top Domaines of Burgundy, as well as Champagne, the Rhone valley – especially the tiny northern Rhone growers and the very top estates in Italy.

The best way, historically to buy these investment wines have been En Primeur, but more recently the secondary market has become as important for fine wine trading. It is essential to buy investment wines in bond, as this is a system of tax-free storage, each and every time the case moves it is catalogued and thus guarantees the provenance again an essential part of wine investment. As the counterfeit market develops, the provenance of the top wines in the world is becoming more important, at Seckford Wines we have had our own bonded warehouse for over 20 years and each case we trade has been stored and checked upon arrival at Seckford Wines – unlike other merchants who store with third parties who cannot do this.
