Wine investment news – 2022-11-24 – Burgundy slightly in the red – Port wine back on trend

Wine investment news – 2022-11-24 – Burgundy slightly in the red – Port wine back on trend

By analysing the worldwide wine auctions, we at "The Wine.network" are in a position to be able to depict the value development of all important wine regions through wine indices.


As you can see from the charts of the wine indices, Burgundy and Champagne are the regions with the best performance last year

But as is so often the case in the world of wine investment, when the top wine regions "run out of steam", the other wine regions follow suit. Port wine has almost only developed sideways due to the pandemic and now that Burgundy and Champagne, but also Bordeaux, are losing performance again in the last 3 months, the "smaller wine regions" are coming and catching up mightily.

Port wines and the USA are the winners of the last 3 months, but Italy is also doing quite well again with an annual performance of 11.75%.


If one or the other may complain a bit, but if we look at the performance of the last 2 years, we simply have to say: This is complaining on a very high level, because with value increases of more than 20 per cent per year, we should first look for an investment that is in the area of cultural assets, that gives most wine connoisseurs absolute pleasure and that, coupled with indescribable enjoyment, is so low-risk
