Investing in wine is an investment that can be profitable. Indeed, wine is a product that improves with time and can be stored for years.
It is important to know that bottles of wine have an average shelf life of 10 years. However, it is possible to keep your wine longer by storing it in a cellar. But for that, you have to respect some simple rules. We'll take a closer look in this article.
What does it cost to invest in wine?
Wine is a luxury product. It is expensive to buy a bottle of wine and it can also be difficult to resell. But it is better to have common sense if you want to invest in wine.
Here are some tips for buying, storing and selling wine: Buy wine you like! It's not just about finding the best price, it's also about buying bottles that you like. To do this, check reviews on the Internet or ask your wine shop what kind of products they have in store. If the producer is not very well known, don't hesitate to ask for more information about their operation (e.g. their soils). In general, small producers tend to sell for less because they don't have the same inventory as the big producers. Never buy on price alone! Tastings in the store often give a precise idea of the potential of a wine and therefore of the price at which you can buy it without taking too much risk. Once the bottle has been chosen, store it correctly to avoid any risk of oxidation or breakage due to thermal variations (cold rooms/ambient temperatures) which lead to organoleptic alterations (modified taste). To do this, store your bottle upright so that it does not touch the bottom or the neck and place it carefully in its adapted case (varnished wooden case specially designed to protect against dust and UV).

How do I go about investing in wine?
The wine is one of the best selling investments. However, it is necessary to know that to succeed in an investment in wine, it is necessary to be well informed on this market. Indeed, if wine is considered as a luxury product as well as a collector's item, the prices are very variable and can vary from simple to tenfold in a very short time. However, investing in wine should not be done lightly: there are several rules to respect and knowledge is necessary to make a good deal.
The wine market is complex and requires special expertise in order to invest successfully. To begin with, it is necessary to determine the type of bottles you wish to purchase (red or white wine) as well as the category (classic grand cru, rare grand cru). Once this step is completed, it will be possible to identify producers who are well known and generally considered as reliable "values". Then comes the research phase, since this will allow you to find the bottles that correspond to the criteria previously established while respecting the budget allocated to your investment project.
The choice of the place where to store the cylinders will also have to be carefully thought out in order to have access to an appropriate room to store them safely.
Are there any tax advantages to investing in wine?
You have certainly heard about the tax advantages of real estate investment.
You probably know that real estate investments are taxable and subject to capital gains tax, but this is not the case for all forms of real estate investments. In fact, according to the current law, some real estate investments are not subject to capital gains tax. Among these investments are exempt from capital gains tax, in particular the acquisition of a property for renovation or improvement, the acquisition of a property for furnished rental (Censi Bouvard Law), or the acquisition of a property for rental (Duflot Law). In addition, there is a specific regime that allows landlords to deduct the expenses related to the rented property from the rental income they receive.
The expenses can be deducted in full if they correspond to work carried out to rent out the property (in this case, we speak of "deficit foncier"). In all cases, it is important to remember that this type of operation is not without risk and that it is always advisable for individuals interested in this solution to discuss it with a seasoned professional.
