It is definitely possible to make money through investing in top wines; however, it is certainly not as easy as is often suggested. Well known financial market-rules and risks do apply to wines also, sometimes even more so. You might have heard that the wine market is generally moving up? Not true at all!

Therefore, as with other investments, caution and knowledge is everything, if you want to avoid expensive mistakes.
This guide gives you a first taste on which possible choices you face while making wine investments, how to identify valuable wines and avoid potential pitfalls.
