Your portfolio looks good in Burgundy.

If you'd popped open a bottle of the 2000 Armand Rousseau Chambertin in 2009, you'd be sipping on a bottle of wine worth $440. As good as $440 tastes, if you held onto it until it reached peak maturity in 2019, you'd get the chance to taste a $3,500 bottle of wine.

Alternatively, you could've purchased a case of it in 2009 for $5,280 and sold it in 2019 for $42,000—a 737% return on investment (ROI). With those kinds of returns, you might as well crack open a couple of bottles and enjoy them yourself. You'd still turn a profit of nearly $30,000.

This is the beauty of investing in fine wine. If you choose the right bottles, you can make more money off of them than you can by investing in stocks. And unlike your shares in Apple, you can drink this asset, too.

Profiting off investment-grade wines used to be a wealth-building tool reserved for wealthy master sommeliers and well-connected collectors with an extra 500 square feet to convert into a wine cellar. Now, anyone with a computer and $50 can start investing in Dionysus' drink of choice.

The hills are alive with the sound of terroir

There are massive barriers to entry when it comes to investing in fine wine. First of all, you need to have sommelier-level knowledge to know which bottles will hold value over time and when to sell. You also need to have access to the most exclusive wineries in the world to get your hands on a case of these sought-after wines—Armand Rousseau, for example, produces less than 10,000 bottles of the Chambertin each year. On top of that, you'll need a temperature-controlled cellar to keep them in pristine condition. Or, for an annual fee of just over 2%, you can let a wine investing platform do all of that for you while you sit back and watch your money grow. Which vineyard trail are you taking?

Chianti wine road vs Wall Street

The fine wine industry has a benchmark index of the 100 top-performing investment-grade wines, called the Liv-ex Fine Wine 100, similar to the stock market's S&P 500. Over the last 20 years, the Liv-ex Fine Wine 100 has outperformed the S&P 500, rising by over 270%. What's more, wine investments are considered both recession-resistant and a good hedge against inflation.
