Wine is no longer just a drink, albeit an expensive onew
at times. Increasingly, wine has become a serious
commodity that is part of a robust secondary market
and can constitute a significant asset. Moreover, wine
is not a static asset and has the capacity to appreciate
significantly in value. In addition, without accessing the
wine in the bottle, which would destroy its value, assessing
the condition of a bottle of wine presents unique challenges.

When presented with a wine collection, an appraiser must
employ varied tools to determine the condition and value
of a collection. This webinar will help an appraiser better
understand the nature of the wine market, the methods
for examining wine, and the practical issues and
concerns surrounding the assessment and valuation
of wine collections.

This is a recording of a previously held live webinar.
