Investing in wine

Investing in fine wine is great because of a few factors.

Wineries produce investment-grade products in small quantities, usually a few hundred bottles. That means there’s a scarcity of valuable products in circulation, and availability only goes down as people consume it.

Even better? This alternative investment is inflation-resistant.

As of right now, the S&P 500 is down 24% year to date and down 18% in the past year.

Meanwhile, the Liv-ex Fine Wine 1000 has gone up 14.1% and 22%, respectively.

It offers plenty of growth, too. Since 2005, Sotheby’s Fine Wine Index has gone up 316%. Wine outperformed the Global Equity Index by 1.88% annually over the last 15 years.

It’s a more stable investment than stocks, but everyday investors have largely been locked out of the game by the constraints of specialized knowledge and logistical factors like proper storage.

Vinovest helps you skip the difficult parts of investing in wine so you can jump straight to the benefits.

An option for everyday investors

Fine wine investing has long been a common practice for wealth generation and preservation — but it's only been available to the ultra-wealthy and accredited investors.

Vinovest is a platform that changes that. With their easy-to-use platform and team of portfolio advisors, you can have your own selection of exclusive, blue-chip wines below retail cost.

Vinovest’s short-, medium- and long-term portfolios are designed to be transparent and easy to understand regardless of your market knowledge, and each is based on the time it takes for the wines to mature.

Every wine from Vinovest goes through a multi-step authentication process with their in-house experts. Their real-time trading platform gives you accurate, transparent pricing with industry-leading security to make sure your money is protected.

You have 100% control over your portfolio and are able to trade wines much like you would stocks.

How Vinovest works

Getting started with Vinovest is simple.

When you create your account, they'll ask you a few questions about your investment goals and risk tolerance to determine which wines will best fill out your portfolio.

Next, fund your account with at least $1,000 and Vinovest's master sommeliers will use proprietary algorithms to set up your portfolio — their direct connections ensure the lowest prices with the highest returns.

From there, you can sit back and relax. They'll alert you of any unique buying opportunities to grow your portfolio and let you know the best times to sell what you've got.

If you decide to sell outside of Vinovest’s recommended selling window, their marketplace will connect you to a global network of buyers.

And because you actually own the bottles, you can always have the wine shipped to you to enjoy if you so desire. Did we mention they take care of storage and insurance, so you don't have to worry about maintaining a secure, temperature-controlled environment?

If you’re still not sure where to start, or need some guidance, you can speak with a portfolio advisor in your region to help you make the most informed decisions for your collection.

Wine collecting without the work

Vinovest gives you the option to safely diversify your portfolio with assets that won’t be affected by the volatile stock market. And starting in 2023, Vinovest’s fees will be permanently reduced, with their starter rate as low as 2.50%.

The platform is trusted by over 130,000 registered clients, and has been featured in publications like Forbes and The Wall Street Journal.
