Wine investment

 

Wine Cellar offers an alternative investment in which the public can capture the most investable and desirable wines from South Africa. The 2018 AIP basket holds a portion of blue chip 2015 reds, but features a majority of rising stars and includes investable white wines. Offered with almost 20 years of fine wine trading experience, we believe this investment vehicle attracts the least administration and cost, along with the highest possible return. We further wish to assist in providing future mature stock to the market.

About the 2018 AIP:

  • An alternative, diversified basket of 20 of the finest and most investable South African wines, unitised into forty R40,000 parcels, comprising of 75 bottles each.
  • 5 years of professional cellaring included in the purchase price with no further costs for the first 5 years. This constitutes cellaring costs of R5,168 per unit, at today’s value, and an effective 12,9% discount on the purchase price.
  • Flexibility is provided in the ability to trade single wines or AIP units.
  • Perfect provenance guaranteed for 5 years.
  • Access to Wine Cellar’s brokerage platform.
  • Free investment advice offered to all investors.
  • Bi-annual wine market reports. View our latest Q4 interim market report.
  • An AIP unit of the same wines from the 2009 vintage would have seen a return of 16,3% CAGR.
