The Australian wine index is a story of passion for wine and business acuity. Founded by two lovers of fine wine, the business partners have over 30 years of experience in the marketing between them.
Witnessing the consumption of Australian Wines increasing each year in the USA and the Asia Pacific region, the farsighted partners recognised a demand for fine wines in the emerging markets in Asia especially in China. Hong Kong and Singapore. The Australian Wine Index was thus born as an answer to the needs of a new generation of wine drinkers and investors.
AWI quickly flourished into a dynamic team of consultants and brokers who were soon serving clients from all over the region, not just in China and Singapore but even in the UK and USA. Before long, AWI relocated its operation from Australia to Singapore, where AWI has been growing from strength to strength with each passing year.
The recognition that each wine vintage is a commodity which cannot be replicated underpins the philosophy at AWI. As every cork is popped and as the appreciation for fine Australian Wines increases, each wine will only grow more valuable. A tangible jewel as such represents a superb investment opportunity because its intrinsic value is not swayed along with the fluctuations in the global economy.
The consultants at AWI only consider wines that would suit the taste of their clients best, carefully choosing from amongst blue chip, cult and pre-cult wines.
Wines that are recommended by AWI have all received international reviews and ratings, providing an external endorsement to AWI's recommendations and attesting to its higher degree of integrity towards its wine selections.
With thousands of wine labels to choose from but no accredited quarterly earnings reports, analysts estimates or real-time prices to ascertain true quality and value, one needs more than a class in wine tasting to sieve out the wines that have investment legs from those that don't.
To help hone your acumen, brokers at the Australian Wine Index provide the inroads into capital returns from Australian fine wine speculation by undertaking extensive research and analysis into wines that bear good ageing potential and tracking down collections of promising wines that are selling below their market value.
Buy or sell recommendations on wines are given to clients based on their growing sales figures, the performance of their pas vintages and international reviews and ratings given by influential wine experts, such as Rober Parker Jr.
