Bewaarwijnen: een investering in smaak en waarde
Investing in wine storage is becoming increasingly popular. After all, it is a good way to grow your money. Not every wine is suitable for this, but storage wines are unique, as they increase in both taste and value as they age.

Storage wines: the timeless classics

Storage wines (the name says it all) are wines that have been specially developed to be stored for years, and whose quality and taste improve over time. They are made from grape varieties that are more susceptible to aging and have a higher alcohol content and richer flavour. Keep wines are usually made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz or Pinot Noir and are usually produced in countries such as France, Spain and Italy, which are known for their quality and tradition in wine production.

Which storage wine should I invest in?

There is no specific storage wine that is guaranteed to be a good investment. The value of stored wines depends on various factors, such as the popularity of the grape variety, the production location, the weather and climate, the reputation of the producer and the quality of the wine. It is therefore important to do research and consider what you consider important in an investment.

Some popular cellar wines to invest in are wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Rhône. These wines are made from grape varieties known for their ability to be stored and for their improved flavor as they age.

There are also certain years when the wines have generally been excellent, such as the legendary vintages of Bordeaux. Including 1961, 1982 and 1990. These years are known for the exceptional quality of wine and can be a good investment.
