There is a global wine shortage according to analysts at Morgan Stanley, and 2013 has been as poor a harvest as in living memory.
It seems it is long time since the heyday for investors in this most liquid of assets.
Back in 2011, buoyed by huge interest in fine-wine investing in China and hot on the heels of two of the best vintages of the past century, prices surged. The release prices of the 2009 and 2010 vintages broke all records as growers restricted supply and cashed-in
Then the market went pop as interest cooled in the far east and the harvests and wine quality turned for the worse. Prices of key investment wines tumbled by around a quarter.
Although fine wines can sell for tens of thousands of pounds a bottle, there are plenty of affordable options available.
Recommendations for investors from the fine wine merchant EFWines include Chateau Pontet-Canet 2005, which costs £95 per bottle, Taittinger Comtes de Champagne 2004, at £65 and the Masseto 2010 from Tuscany, costing £300.
Jon Barr of EFWines said: “We would expect these wines to rise between 5% and 8% over the next few years.”
