wine investment outperforms gold and crude oil

On the last day of 2010, Liv-ex published the results of the Liv-ex Fine Wine 50 Index. This indicator tracks the performance of 10 vintages of the 5 Bordeaux First Growths (Lafite, Latour, Mouton, Margaux and Haut Brion). For the first time in its history, it broke the 400 barrier, having been based at 100 in January 2004.

Fine wine as measured by this index in 2010 outperformed all other investment classes including gold and crude oil and made the S&P 500 and FTSE 100 pale in comparison. Even measured over 5 years time, wine easily shows the highest returns.

About Us

Ditton Wine Traders buy and sell fine wine.

The finest wine, at the very lowest prices. For drinking & investment; for both Private and Trade customers.

Ditton Wine Traders are exactly that, wine traders. Since 2004, we have bought & sold fine wine on a daily basis, at fair and competitive prices.

The prices you see on the website are the prices you pay – with no hidden extras. The advice is free here too. We do everything possible to make sure we keep our costs down. There is no shop – we use the phone and email. We don’t employ a lot of staff and we don’t have a swanky London office.

As a result, we are able to operate on a much lower margin than many of our competitors. Our ever increasing network of negociants, distributors, wholesalers, retailers and private stock-holders means we will frequently bring you ‘impossible to match’ deals. We specialize in the best wine from Bordeaux, as well as a fast growing list of the most sought after wines from Burgundy, Champagne and Italy.
