How to Drink the World's Greatest Wines For Free

You may think this is a pie in the sky and too good to be true. How so you may ask?

You must have a long-term horizon and enjoy the wine more than money. The two types of wine investors are those that invest in the liquid asset itself for the capital gains or those that simply drink it for the love of it. If you are like the bulk of us, you would like to enjoy drinking the best wines in the world guilt free.

The first step is to choose and purchase an investment-grade wine from the great producers and vintages of wine.

The second step is the real hard and tantalizing part, the waiting. This part of the process is possibly the most important of all for your wine investment. It is paramount that your investment is stored in the best environment for your wine to evolve in the bottle in order to fetch the highest auction prices. Professional wine storage facilities like Carl’s Wine Vault control the temperature, humidity, security, and other crucial services needed in this instrumental process. Sotheby’s Wine Index has consistently outperformed the S&P 500 since 2005. The more the wine ages the more it appreciates in value.

Third, sell half and reap the financial rewards or to drink and enjoy with Family and Friends!

We have always been told great things come to those who wait but they were wrong… it tastes even better.
