What will wine investment look like post-pandemic?
The future of Hotels and F & B reported by hospitality.net has been very bleak. But the wellness dining market will keep rising as we can see an increased awareness of eating and living healthy.
If the pandemic has taught us one thing, it is eating healthy and wholesome food is key to a better life. With most people working from home, more time is spent preparing better meals.
Many producers of the best fine and rare wines in the world use biodynamic and organic winemaking techniques. They had the capital to start early. The techniques to organic winemaking always produce better quality wine. Many use a horse and cart to plow a field which is very popular among the top Bordeaux estates.
When visiting the famous Bordeaux Chateau Pontet Canet, I was amazed at how their herbalist would scour the region for special herbs to make a tea, that they would spray across the vines to nourish and protect them. The lengths they go to produce one of the most amazing wines in the world.
It is healthier to drink the more expensive wines which we also invest in. Have you ever bought a cheap bottle of wine and wondered why it gave you a headache? It could be the level of sulfites that didn’t agree with you.
Over the next 24 months, as we reach a peak in the financial markets, fine wine is likely to continue to grow more and more aggressively.
Cash always moves into hard assets, when investors look to protect the gains they’ve made. Especially over a three-year bull run.
The next 12 months have a positive outlook for fine wine investments. Try to build 40% of your portfolio in wine going into the next 18 months. You will not regret it.
How our service has changed the return on investment
Wine Investing with Sure Holdings has become a passive investment.
When we lowered our margins by 40% at the end of 2019, we took a big risk with what could of been a 40% decline in revenue.
15 months later and it was the best decision we made.
Revenues have actually increased and we are now pivoting client portfolios into better wines quicker than before while creating more diversity. This increases your return on investment whilst maintaining good balance in your portfolio.
Wine investing with Sure Holdings now looks like this.
Review client portfolios bi-weekly to asses:
Initial purchase price – Current market price – Purchase date – length of time invested.
Current market conditions overall and market outlook specific to the wine.
Initial target price achieved?
If under-performing, analyze if should be sold.
If the timing is right, the wine is placed for sale and an automated email is sent to the client.
Regularly negotiate and buy new wines, based on market price, quantity in the market, historical performance, quality of wine and classification.
Look at current market performance overall and market condition of specific classifications. Further drill into the wine and its current performance/demand in the market.
As a new wine is negotiated, logistics will monitor clients who are in credit to re-invest.
Check if a client has completed a portfolio liquidation form. Allocate the funds accordingly, any balance reinvest for the client.
Client will receive a credit note and a bank transfer confirmation when the funds have been remitted.
Client will receive an invoice for the new wines followed by an email from the clients associate advising what has been re-invested.
Clients now see their portfolio grow much faster because there is no delay in deciding whether to buy or checking if theres free capital to invest, plus bigger and better deals can be negotiated and applied quicker. Allowing more focus on the pick of the investment than the distribution.
These procedures of investing are proving to be very rewarding indeed for investors.

New Year of the Bull
Will the bull live up to its name in 2021. the stock market bulls have been in charge mode for a while already. But does the year of the bull in Chinese mean bullish for stocks or hard assets like wine? Or both? The year of the Bull does signify wealth.
Crypto Currency is also a hot market right now. With returns in the 1000% and what seems like a long way further to go. New millionaires and billionaires are being made from crypto currency as the technology is adopted in business and transactions over the next 5 years. Bitcoin hit its high of $58000 before crashing down to $48,000 overnight. If you’re not a billionaire’ in 10 years ‘it’s your own fault,’ said 20-year-old bitcoin tycoon. Volatility is crypto currencies strength when it comes to trading.
Another hot area is green energy, the race for a battery powered car is on. Not only green energy but self driving is also on its way to becoming the norm in the near future. Most of the worlds car makers are now producing excellent electric cars and this is an exciting space with the growth of Tesla share price rising reaching over $800 recently. Elon musk commented, “in 10-15 years owning a petrol car will be like owning a horse”.
We recently visited the Tesla Gigafactory in Austin, Texas. They built one in Nevada in 2 years, see the middle image below, the one at top and bottom of the image is construction in Austin, Texas expected to complete within 6 months, The $1 billion, 5 million-square-foot plant, referred to by Musk as Giga Texas, should finish construction by the fourth quarter of this year. Every constructed factory, they try to build faster and with less energy.
