Top Tips For InvestingIn Fine Wine

  • Deal only with established and reputable merchants, but shop around for advice and prices
  • Buy your wines 'in bond' so that UK duty and VAT are not payable
  • Buy unmixed sealed cases, in original wood. Condition and provenance are key
  • Expect to invest over a minimum five year period, but be ready to sell if advised
  • Buy as close to the opening price as possible
  • Invest at least £10,000 if you are looking for serious returns
  • Don't blindly buy just the big names - they may have less profit potential
  • Listen to your wine merchant
  • Make sure you know the provenance and storage history of any wine you buy
  • Make sure that your wine is insured and stored in your name
