News from our suppliers: WineChap presents ‘Investing in pleasure is the new investing’

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013


By Tom Harrow of WineChap, AWAD’s favourite wine expert

Dream of starting your own cellar? Here’s how to do it

The City folk I meet at tastings often ask how wine consultancy works. If it’s as nebulous as other forms of consultancy. 

They are predictably interested in the investment side of wine too, an interest piqued by the graphs sharp wine brokers are wont to wave around that show ‘82 Bordeaux rocketing skywards against gold’s more leisurely ascent and the FTSE’s flat line.

How it begins…

Over a long lunch at The Ivy we devise a cellar plan for the next 5-10 years. Realistically, a starting commitment of £10,000 per annum is advisable, £5000 minimum but the more the merrier.

Nothing is ever bought in single cases: speculative cases x2; things you really like x3 or more, thus enabling you to sell stock that performs particularly well back on to the market to fund more purchases without feeling ashamed that you hocked your one case of Pontet Canet 09 without even trying a bottle.
