Investment Grade Wines

Best Investment Wines

Most wines are purchased for consumption, even though a lot of them get stored in a cellar for much later. Almost every quality wine develops precious character and extra nuances over time, and wine enthusiasts are typically a patient sort, perfectly willing to allow that time to pass. However, sometimes the vintage is so good, you want to wait until demand increases, and you can turn a hefty profit, usually keeping a bottle or two for personal satisfaction. There is an inherent risk when it comes to seeking out these potentially profitable wines, as there are factors that can make it less desirable later on. However, that risk adds a lot of thrill to the procedure, and you’re not a true wine geek if you don’t relish that thrill and take some chances. Even if you don’t end up being able to resell the wine, you will usually be left with a very solid choice for drinking, and you can use it as a staple choice for social events and romantic evenings.

We’re thrilled to introduce you to some fine, reliable investment-grade wines. They’re as solid as gold when it comes to value, and you can sit on them for ages, increasing their overall worth. From the prestigious bottles of chateaux Latour, Haut-Brion, and Margaux to the powerful Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon from California, there are many options to choose from. We have been keeping an eye on recent vintages in order to identify really good investment-grade wines with the highest degree of accuracy. Let’s examine some candidates.

    Conterno’s 1943 Barolo Monfortino is quite good, but this is not the best bottle I have run across. In my experience, once past the 1970s, older Monfortinos are highly variab..." Learn More
