Vintage Investment Portfolio: 2015

Wine Investment

VIP 2015

Overview

The Vintage Investment Portfolio 2015 was launched in 2018 as Wine Cellar's first and long-awaited investment product. It is a unitised basket of SA’s most investable wines, heralding from the greatest modern-day vintage. 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.

Professional cellaring is included in the purchase price with no further costs for the first 5 years. This constitutes a cellaring cost saving of R17,776 per unit on release, an effective 17.8% discount. Flexibility is provided in the ability to trade single wines or entire VIP units. A VIP unit of the same wines from the 2009 vintage would have seen an annual return of 16,5% (as of October 2018). Total stock within the VIP 2015s constitutes approximately 1.5% of total production and is a leap forward in providing a secondary market for fine wine in the future.

The VIP 2015 is fully-subscribed. Please email Johan to sign-up to our investment newsletter.
