INVESTMENT GRADE WINE
In 2018, two bottles of 1945 Romanée Conti sold at auction for US$558,000 and $496,000 respectively, smashing all previous records as well as the expected sale prices. Headline-grabbing events like this push fine wine collecting into the spotlight, and often prompt questions about how to seek growth by knowing how to accurately put a price – particularly such a high one – on a bottle of wine.
