Uncorrelated to the market
In times of market turmoil, such as the 2008 crisis or the coronavirus pandemic, investments in fine wine are fairly insensitive to the macro economic context.
It’s a tangible asset
Wine has intrinsic value that makes it suitable for preserving wealth as a medium to long-term investment.
Globally, due to new emerging economies, people drink more fine wine than ever before. Combined with reduced supply, this makes wine prices go up.
Fine wine production is controlled by law. What’s more, production methods, weather conditions and geographic constraints also influence quantities. Together, these parameters contribute to the scarcity of fine wine.

What drives fine wine performance?
1 Finite supply
Every vintage is limited to a certain number of bottles due to geographical constraints, weather conditions and production methods.
2 Global consumption
Wine is consumed on a growing worldwide scale. This makes it grow scarce.
3 Increasing desirability
The more people drink wine, the rarer it gets, and the more desirable fine wine becomes.
