Much like any other luxury item, itís brand, quality, difficulty to acquire and scarcity that drive the prices.
I have always been into enjoying these fine wine instead of considering them as investment, just like watches to some people.

As in any investment, it takes a lot of learning, luck, and timing to be successful and it is just not for me when it comes to wine. I would rather buy and enjoy them.

Cheers to 2020.
