GROWTH PERIOD

Wines from some ‘Old World’ regions (Bordeaux, Burgundy etc) can last for 100+ years and are usually ready to drink 5-10 years after production.

A wine from the ‘New World’ (USA, Australia, South Africa etc) can last 20-30 years and can be drunk at a young age. Fine wines from these regions are smaller in choice and lack the reputation of their Old World counterparts. Whilst some wines from USA and Australia are considered to carry investment merit, they are without doubt more speculative and are generally not considered ‘investment-grade’.

The low life expectancy and short maturity means that the market for these wines works very differently and doesn’t contain the ‘waiting factor’ of the Old World investment wines.

When wine is ready to drink the supply of stock can drop off rapidly and this can result in a short-term spike in price. Whilst strong short-term profit is possible, investment in fine wine ultimately requires patience and investors who understand this will benefit the most.
