Bordeaux is the global fine wine capital, home to one of the world’s biggest and most prestigious wine fair – the Vinexpo. Not at all surprising, given that the wine economy in the metro area moves over 14.5 billion Euros each year.
The underlying supply and demand metrics in this Bordeaux market reinforce the attractive proposition of wine as an investment. In recent years, the global wine market has witnessed a sharp rise in demand; the interest originating mainly from the emerging economies of China, Russia, India and the Middle East, and a huge increase in the number of individual investors and collectors.
On the other hand, supply for such luxury fine wines has been constrained by the ‘Appellation d’Origine Controlee’ – (AOC), which is the French term for long-standing geographical restrictions imposed by the governing French authorities. The rules and regulations state that the local vineyards may not expand or increase the production volume of their Chateaux; as a consequence, the quantity of a specific wine from a specific vintage can only decrease over time, driving up its rarity factor. As the demand for fine wine is ever-present and always increasing, the supply remains strictly controlled and limited resulting in a consistent growth in value and market price.
