The Top 10 Wines to Invest In Today

by Nov 10, 2021News0 comments

Imagine that back in the day you invested in a case of 1992 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon wine. When released, mailing list members had the chance to snag a bottle of this “cult wine” for a mere US$75.00. Fast forward to now, and one bottle alone goes for US$13k-$21k, so let’s say around US$180k for the case!

In less than 30 years, the wine’s value skyrocketed by at least 17,300 percent—173 fold!! Granted, this is an extreme case, but as financebuzz.com points out, “Over the last 15 years, wine has offered annualized returns of 13.6% and wine investing often beats global equities and is considered less volatile than real estate investing.”

So if you invest smart and for the long-term, your wine investment portfolio has a lot of potential! And that’s precisely why we at Alti Wine Exchange created the world’s first blockchain-based platform to trade wine and offer an alternative asset investment.

Of course, not all wines are worthy. In fact, more than 95% of wine is meant to enjoy in the here and now. Plus some grapes simply lack the longevity needed to be a wise investment.

Investment-worthy wines translate to superior-quality, age-worthy wines. Think quality Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux Grand Cru Classé, and Brunello wines, for example. Wines with enough acidity and fruit concentration to stand the test of time.

Right now we have a slew of wines for you, ranging from minor to major to investments. Our wines are preforming quite well and we’re confident that any mix among the list below will lead to a successful return in the years to come.
