Investing in Wine: Here are Three Ways to Profit

Enjoy wine? Want to diversify away from stocks? Here’s how to start investing in wine.

Wine investing can be profitable. That may surprise many people.

But here’s an example of a drinkable multi-bagger.

Someone bought 1982 Chateau Petrus wine futures when they presold for about $40 a bottle in 1983.

Today, they’d have a fat profit. That same bottle now sells for about $1,500 a bottle.

Does that whet your appetite?

Well, here are three ways that wine is a terrific alternative asset.

Investing in Wine stocks or ETFs

According to available data, millennials are drinking more wine than previous generations. This demographic change in preference could create upside for wine stocks. It also could drive up the number of Americans investing in wine.

One can buy shares in listed or private wine companies, mutual funds, and ETFs.

Listed companies include Diageo, Constellation Brands, and Truett-Hurst.

Investing in Wine Futures

Wine futures are an interesting investment. It starts by reserving wine that is in wine barrels and not bottled as yet.

This is one-way wine enthusiasts build up a collection of quality yearly wines. Sometimes the wine appreciates due to demographic or cultural changes.

Buy Wine Bottles Directly

The third way to invest in wine: Buy choice bottles and store them in a wine cellar.

Finally, it is important to protect the value of your investment. Do so by maintaining the right conditions of temperature, humidity, ventilation, and darkness. With the right amount of time and proper storage, you can sell these bottles later for a fine profit.
