If you wish to invest in fine wine or even a winery or vineyard, then there are several options available.
1/ Invest in “wine futures”. Fine wines can give you excellent returns, in the region of 12 to 15% per annum. until now, most investment has been in Bordeaux fine wines, but Burgundy is very much a “niche” investment market; estates such as DRC, Roumier and Armand Rousseau are always safe bets but practically impossible to get hold of. We can help you invest in the right estates, whether as a pure investment or for drinking pleasure too.
Burgundy is fairly new to the wine futures market as it is difficult to understand the set up and the wine industry here suffers from small yields, but this can make it all the more interesting as the wines gain a greater value.
There is also a possibilty to acquire wines from up-and-coming wine makers, who could be tomorrow’s stars?
Burgundy Beyond can advise you on investment possibilities, so please contact us for more information.
2/ Purchasing wine from auction. If you are interested in participating at the famous Hospices de Beaune wine auction, which takes place on the third Sunday of November, with a view to purchasing “en primeur” Burgundy wine from the Hospice de Beaune’s prestigious 60 hectare (150 acre) estate, then we can organize it for you. In partnership with the Albert Bichot wine house – the biggest bidder at the auction – you will be invited for an unforgettable weekend with a pre-tasting of the wine in the barrels and VIP seats at the auction. Contact us for more information.
3/ Invest in a wine estate. There are several estates in the Côtes de Beaune and Côtes de Nuit districts that are looking for investors to help them increase the size of their estates. Investment costs vary according to the winery, whose needs range from help in buying a new vineyard plot to buying a winery! You could be either a single investor or a group of investor.
