Most people would hardly ever think of wine as an investment. They would think of consuming it, and tasting it, and if it were a spectacularly good wine, showing it off to their friends and letting their friends take an envious sip.
In England, there is a vintner (to be differentiated from winemaker, by the way) who specializes in wines for investment purposes. The difference between a winemaker and a vintner in the United States is not the same as the UK. In the UK, a winemaker makes wine, and a vintner sells it. UKV PLC Wines are vintners; they sell wine for investment purposes.
They are especially capable and knowledgeable about the possibility of investments when it comes to the markets that have been slightly overlooked: the BRIC companies. That would be Brazil, Russia, India, and China. These countries are just emerging as producing a class of investors who would like to purchase investment wines.
There is a very interesting thing about investment wines. Some wines are extremely expensive. It is based on the weather at the vineyard when the grape was grown, in the way that the wine was fermented, and where the chateaux are that produced the grapes. When the wine is tasted, or that bottle is opened, it has lost its value. It has been consumed. It is a shrinking commodity that can not be replaced. Gold, as an investment, is never consumed. Nor is art, or coins, or things of that nature. However, wine disappears completely. Once consumed, the remaining bottles of that vintage have now gone up in price. What better investment can one find than one that will indubitably go up in value, if it is used as it is supposed to be used? Do not forget, some of the investors will drink their bottles of the world’s best wines. That is what they are for.
There is no wonder that so many investors are looking toward UKV PLC Wines. Ask them about investing in wines today!
