Hey everyone,

We’ve already talked about how, as the coronavirus/covid-19 news worsen our anxieties, investors want to look for alternative investments that can protect their portfolios.

(By the way, you can read every post we’ve written on wine as a financial asset right here.)

We’ve noticed a clear increase in traffic in our platform during the past week. That means our subscribers – and many new prospective investors – have been resorting to investing in fine, rare wine as tangible assets that can provide them safe, strong returns in the long term.

So, even though many of you are already familiarized with trading fine wine, our Chief Wine Officer Julien Miquel was kind enough to assemble the basics in a video for those who are curious and want to get started.


The basics of wine investment

In this three-minute trailer, he explains the basic principles behind wine exchange, roams through the innovative features of our site and explains how easy it is the join our free-of-charge Alti Wine Club.

If the video drew your attention, it’s natural that you might have other doubts about how we operate. Don’t forget to check our FAQ (and our whole website as well!), and, in case you might need to speak to us for any matter, fill in the form and we’ll answer as quick as possible!

You can also check the new contents Julien is making with us on our YouTube channel and on his profiles on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Be sure to follow ours as well (on the bottom of the page)!


PS.: During these quarantine days, stay strong: given the many bad news everywhere, try to switch the focus whenever you can: read books, watch some films/series and chat online with friends. And keep exercising: if you lack space in your house or apartments, jumping jacks are a great way of burning calories and lifting the spirits.

And, oh!, a glass of wine may help soften up the mood – but drink responsibly: don’t exaggerate.
