HOW TO START A WINE COLLECTION

 

Take pleasure in the planning

When you think about starting your collection, it needs to be with an eye on medium- and long-term pleasure and potential. The idea of a well-planned collection is that once the wines start to reach maturity, you’ll have all the bottles you need. To do this, you’ll need to buy wines at the earliest opportunity in their lifespan, En Primeur.

Consider how much you want to spend

A love of wine is a prerequisite to starting a wine collection, but it’s a passion that comes with a pricetag. And, if you want a wine collection that’s exciting in terms of drinking and flexibility, it will require a certain amount of investment. You don’t have to commit a lot to make it interesting but if you are collecting classic wines for the longer term it is a minimum of £250 a month with Cellar Plan.

Don’t be afraid to change your mind

As you get deeper into the wine world, you’ll find that your tastes develop and evolve meaning you may want to re-shape your collection. BBX, our fine wine exchange, is the world’s largest collection of fine wine, with almost £1 billion of customer-owned wines available to buy or bid on. It’s a thrill to explore and a great place to both sell your wine and buy new cases to grow your collection.
