SELLING WINE - EXIT STRATEGY

The exit strategy is as important as the initial investment as gains from investment in fine wine are only realized once the exit sale of the wine is complete.

When putting together a portfolio of wines, buying wines is very easy, but it is imperative to have an exit strategy or a model for paying returns whilst optimizing performance. Trying to liquidate large volumes of an individual stock in one go could reduce the achievable market value of the wine. Conversely, with the correct routes to market, a well-proportioned collection of wines should be sold with ease. The emphasis should never be on buying large volumes of an individual stock, but to spread the funds evenly across different stocks, based on the pre-agreed composition (based on investment strategy, such as length and level of investment).

For example, a value investment stock overview comprising:
 


 

...is preferable to just having 25 cases of Latour 2002. It is easier to sell stock in these numbers and more likely to achieve the full market value upon liquidation.

Another critical factor in the future sale value of any wine is the condition and provenance of the wine. No wine should be included in the investment portfolio unless itís in the original wooden case (OWC), wine levels into the bottle neck and no damage to the labels/bottles.
