It is simple and easy to use, constructed of a forum that allows you to post the wine name, quantity, condition and location followed by a price. People can then reply with questions and comments about the wine before deciding whether to purchase.

What are the advantages of wine over other investments?
Finite Product: You are investing in a tangible, improving asset that has a limited production but a huge global demand base. The supply of this already limited asset then declines over the years as the wines are consumed.
Tangible Asset: Shares that fall in value are good for nothing save for selling at a loss. Wines that do not perform financially as well as expected can be enjoyed.
Tax: Your investment is exempt from duty and VAT and, in theory; profits are exempt from Capital Gains Tax. Please note that we advise you to consult a financial institution or an IFA for clarification.
