Fine wine investment faq

get in touch –

After reading through our Fine Wine Investment FAQ, email or call +44 (0)1502 676110. We’ll talk you through an initial consultation, whether investing as a business or as an individual, so we can find the right level of investment for your budget. You are always welcome to come and visit us at our office on the Suffolk Coast, near Southwold.

Can you guarantee an increase in value?

Unfortunately, not. The nature of Fine Wine means we can’t as there are some things we just can’t predict. We’ve built our business by doing things properly. We have a proven track record and great knowledge of the market. Your investments are our investments, we only buy from reputable sources and we take all necessary due diligence to avoid traps such as liquidation, over-valuation, fakes and fraud.

Is there a minimum fine wine investment?

There isn’t a minimum investment. Based on our experiences and the long-term prospects of investing in high value Fine Wines, we suggest a minimum of £10,000 per annuum, this may only be five to ten cases of wine. This can be split quarterly, monthly, or as a one-off annual payment. Our recommended annual investment is £50,000.

Do I need to be an expert in wine?

Not at all, though the stories and characters behind the wine makes the journey more interesting. If you do wish to learn more, we’re perfectly placed to get you into exclusive events and with our contacts we can open the doors to the most famous Chateaux, so you can experience the world’s finest wines.

Can I drink my wines?

It’s not the primary purpose of investing in wines. However, the wines we’ve invested in on your behalf are yours. If you would like to liquidate a proportion of you investment to drink and enjoy at home, just ask and we’ll arrange it.

There will be a cost for Duty, VAT and delivery. It will simply reduce the value of your investment portfolio by the equivalent market value of the wines you select. Alternatively, let us know if you’re looking for a specific wine for your dinner table, we can source wines for you in addition to your Investment Portfolio.
