Collectible wine is a unique asset in that it is perishable. Technically, it is a wasting asset. But valuing it incorrectly can cost your client thousands of dollars. How can you recognize the value of collectible wine and appraise it correctly?

This webinar will discuss how you recognize and evaluate collectible wine. It will give you historical background and an up-to-the-minute view of the market today, including hot-topic issues such as authenticity and recent litigation.

In this webinar, Master of Wine and certified appraiser Charles Curtis, MW, AAA will discuss his proprietary system using leading indicators to parse the markets movements and will reveal how issues of condition, storage and provenance weigh on the valuation of what is otherwise a market for multiples. He will discuss finding the appropriate market and evaluating salability. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Understand valuation issues specific to collectible wine
  • Recognize when a wine collection constitutes a significant asset
  • Develop appraisal strategies based on valuation of wine collection
  • Deal with a wine collection as part of estate planning or disposition
