As a real asset, fine wine can provide diversification to protect your portfolio against the volatile effects of inflation and recession.

As of right now, the S&P 500 is up 19.74% over the last year. Meanwhile, the Liv-ex Fine Wine 1000 has gone up 22.28%.

It offers plenty of growth, too. Since 2005, Sotheby’s Fine Wine Index has gone up 339%. Wine outperformed the Global Equity Index by 1.88% annually over the last 15 years.

Investing in fine wine used to be an option only for the ultra-rich.

But with wine investing platform Vinovest* you can buy into investment-grade wine too, just like Bill Koch and LeBron James.

Getting started with Vinovest is simple. Just answer a few questions about your investment goals and risk tolerance, fund your account with at least $1,000 and Vinovest's master sommeliers will use proprietary algorithms to set up your portfolio.

From there, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy steady yield on this alternative investment.
