Always buy only from a wine investment consultancy firm whom you know to be reliable, never from new or unproven consultants.
Get it on track.
Never buy until you know that the wine has an excellent auction track record in markets such as the UK, US and Asia. If a consultant offers you a wine without a proven track record, he is gambling with your money and your wines.
Invest at the price offered by the wine consultant to its clients; the wholesale prices as it were. The maximum potential for growth (and profit) comes when one is able to buy direct from the consultant and in reasonably substantial quantities.
Typically, an initial investment would be around $50,000 USD to the seller agent, this sum includes procurement shipping, arranging in the clients name storage and insurance. Wines are kept at the temperature-controlled bonded warehouses that are available internationally and chosen in conjunction with clients needs. Investors do not have to pay taxes as long as their bottles don’t leave the warehouse. The client remains at all time in complete control of their purchase.
