Wine Indexes

Methodology

Alti Wine Exchange (MWE) Indexes are a family of equal weighted indexes which trace price performance of fine and rare wines and shows equal weighted average returns on them. The indexes are subdivided by most important wine countries.

Monthly average wine prices in US dollars were collected from https://www.wine-searcher.com/ database and converted to euro.

The main features of an equal weighted index include:

  • Cumulatives of the arithmetic average of the percentage changes in price for all wines in index

  • Equivalent to investing the same € amount in each wine

  • Price performance of all wines regardless of the price is equally important

Index Computation Example

If Index was 100 on month 0, it would also be 104,4 on month 1: I 0 (1 + %D) = I 1

Wine Price 0, € Price 0, € € % change
A 100 110 10%
B 200 210 5%
C 300 295 -1,67%
Sum: 13,33%
Divided by 3 4.4%
