The tactic to be used for wines for investment changes according to how much can be spent. If there is a lot of money and the intention is that of financial speculation then the web sites to be consulted are Liv-EX with its quotations of the 100 strongest and most expensive in the world, and Wine-searcher to buy them at the best price anywhere in the world. My advice is to bet on stable values maybe choosing some Italian brands, as the French chateaux recently have not received the same remuneration as ours. I would like to point out Le Macchiole, in Bolgheri with an extraordinary quality level and Ornellaia, the Frescobaldi cellar which has seen its quotations double from 2007 to today bettering everyone else even in the auctions. Such an extraordinary success that the bottles of Ornellaia are considered an investment even better than gold, as Luciano Ferraro has underlined in his blog Di vini.

The source is the most trustworthy, because Wine Searcher works with 38.000 distributors all over the world and has 10 million pages visited every month. So if it indicates an average sales price for a bottle that really is the average price around the world.

Lets see which are the wineries producing these bottles for millionaires.
First of all Ornellaia from the Tuscan winery bearing the same name Vendemmia d’Artista Special Edition Bolgheri Superiore.

This is a small selection of bottles in larger sizes creates by prestigious artists such as Rebecca Horn, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Ghada Amer and Reza Farkhondeh. These are practically works of art which take on different shapes in the double Magnum, Imperial and Salmanazar forms – 3 – 6 and 9 litres. A very successful wine making mechanism especially in auctions and which Wine Searcher quotes at 975$ up to nearly 7,000 $.
