Wine as an Investment

This is a course for those interested in fine wine investment. The benefits and risks of investing in fine wine will be explored. The performance of the fine wine market and the return on investment history of blue chip wines compared with other financial indexes will be discussed.

We explain how to build a balanced fine wine portfolio. We discuss the safest and best options to purchase, store, and insure your wines, how to sell and trade in bond, and the implications of importing and shipping your stock.

The course also covers new territories of vine investment, with a discussion of the up and coming regions with investment potential.
