Hello! :) Introduce yourself

I think there tends to be a general misconception that wine in general is a good investment . As @Brocklehurstj says it simply isn’t true unless you’re dealing with very high end, limited production and sought after bottlings.
If you intend then to invest in your drinking future and then decide to sell on at a later point of the wines you own then ensure you either keep them in bond and/or stored offsite with a reputable merchant. It’s difficult to resell wine without proving it has been stored properly :+1:.

This is actually a relief. I don’t need to factor this in and can just buy wine I know I’ll enjoy drinking. Thank you.

Yup! it’s pretty universal for many dodgy schemes. Caveat Emptor!

I will add to that impeccable and traceable provenance.

I love Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir. Also enjoyed the PNs from Oregon - what do you think of them?
