1. Any investment should be treated as a long term and a minimum of five to ten years is usually recommended.

2. Only buy the finest wines in the finest vintages, remembering that when they appear on the market they must be of a recognised quality and source.

3. While buying from wine merchants, who are certain as to where the wine has been stored and, more importantly, where the wine will be stored in the future.

5. Enjoy wine! This sounds obvious but investments can go wrong and at the very least one will have the pleasure of drinking some of the finest wines in the world.
