Opportunities are Infinite
Investment in wine has been rediscovered as some forgotten varieties are coming back in the markets. Some latest varieties are added with cannabis infusions. Bordeaux remains to be the main brand for investment due to higher liquidity and Burgundy provides better growth in rates. Italian parallel to these are Tuscany and Piedmont. Higher liquidity can be seen in European markets and a few cult wines from US, Australia or New Zealand can give better rates.
In the last 15 years, wine as alternative investment has outperformed stock markets and it provides stability during volatility. Fine wine is expected to become mainstream investment. The demand for Bordeaux was driven by the growing demand in China and Hong Kong, during the post recession phase. Now its value has surpassed peaks.
A wine farm can be a great acquisition where, according to Viva Business, investment can grow exceptionally in 20 years, and a number of wealth managers and financial advisors are endorsing the idea of investment in such farms. In the last year, over 770 million gallons consumption was reported by the wine industry and most such businesses are owned by families.
Investing in Wine Farms
The investors should be familiar with essentials of productions, regions, types of grapes as well as the impact of climate change on growing conditions. One should try to gain knowledge, look up for specific wine types, history, brand, liquidity, and brand strength and relative values. Previous performance suggests the farms provide lucrative investment opportunities where those who are new to it should get expert advice and avoid buying in wrong regions or overpaying for the farms.
Such farms can support multiple generations, especially, if these are supported by newer visions and ideas. This provides diversification with long-term view where active involvement of the buyer and expert advice on farms is needed.
How to Invest and what are the Risk Factors?
Collectors are seeking top-end prestigious wines. There are investment driven wine clubs, vending machines-based systems, and other places where these are in high demand. The investor should try to identify the amount he/ she want to invest and how much one can get involved. Trusted portfolio manager or companies should be contacted to start as there are many incidences of scams in such investments.
A Global Wine Investment company was started by Michael Wilson in London, which attracted investment of £360,716 and he spent only £60,000 towards the project. The investors never got the product they ordered and many complained that they were given low quality bottles. Most investors had contacted the company on seeing the newspaper ads and the clients grew suspicious when the London City Bond said there was no account on the client’s name. The company spent a good amount of the money towards lifestyle payments, and claimed the cash was spent on personal medical bills in Jamaica. The court ordered Wilson to pay back £22,131.00 in three months, or serve in jail for 12 months.
Investors should be careful and invest through reliable firms to prevent such scams.
