Each case of wine is a physical tangible asset with its own intrinsic value
Due to strict production laws, vineyards can only produce a certain amount of wine every year. Once a vintage has been produced, it can never be recreated again.
The global wine market size is expected to reach $685B by 2028. With fine wine in short supply, demand for the top end chateaux has never been higher.
The wine market is not linked to any single economy and simply follows wealth around the world, which is why it has proven to be a safe haven during times of economic uncertainty.
Since 1988 when records began, the wine market has shown annualised returns of 12-13% per annum.
Fine wine is regarded as a wasting asset and therefore is exempt from both capital gains and income tax.
Where to start.. I have had the pleasure of dealing with George for many years now and it's been an absolute dream. He, and everyone else at Vintage, have been nothing but helpful, knowledgeable and professional throughout. Despite having minimal experience of alternative investments, such as wine, these guys could not have made it any easier for me with the information and guidance they provide. I have also seen unbelievable returns, by far outperformed the rest of my portfolio. I can not recommend Vintage Associates enough.
Regularly updated by my account manager Costas, we have a great working relationship. I have also been down to view my wine in bond and would highly recommend other clients to do so as it is a experience like no other. Happy to speak with anybody who is looking to get involved with vintage associates to share my experience. 5 stars.
I have been working with Vintage Associates for a few years now and they have been nothing short of excellent. Their knowledge of the industry is second to none and always provide me with very detailed information about current and new investments. I am looking forward to working with them for many years to come.
