How to Collect?
The Elite Wine & Whisky process
This video outlines the process of collecting with Elite Wine & Whisky. We walk you through each stage ensuring you have the relevant education before exploring our services further.
Why Collect With Us?
As fine wine is defined as an asset class its primary objective is to safeguard collectors capital in the event of market downturns.
After a consultation with our qualified traders, a bespoke portfolio is constructed around your criteria. We then provide the acquisition, maintenance and exit strategy.
Fine wine has outperformed every other major financial index over the past two decades. Historically it has shown little correlation to mainstream assets, making it a prime candidate for diversification in uncertain economic climates.
With increasing demand from China and other BRIC nations and the confidence coming from collectors looking for safe havens, the growth rate of global demand is set to increase dramatically over the next 12 months.
