Jun 20th 2009 8:22PM Thanks for the post on the Vinfolio Marketplace. I'm the VInfolio CEO (and founder). Anthony DeMello is a customer. For a few clarifications on the Bloomberg story regarding the Marketplace, see my blog post at The Wine Collector: http://www.vinfolio.com/thewinecollector/2009/06/bloomberg-profiles-vinfolios-m.jsp
Jul 24th 2007 10:50AM I write a blog called The Wine Collector (www.vinfolio.com/thewinecollector) and have addressed the topic of wine as an investment in numerous posts, including one on July 22 called "Wine investing: who's doing it?" http://www.vinfolio.com/thewinecollector/2007/07/wine-investing-whos-doing-it-1.jsp. The bottom line is that I'm not sure many people are doing it as a primary motivation behind a wine purchase but there's no question that hedge fund managers are among a growing group of heavy spenders on top wines. As we all know, high demand relative to fixed supply of top labels will drive up prices.
Nov 16th 2006 5:15PM The "big ticket" item is truly an expected auction record breaker. I wrote a post in my blog, The Wine Collector, a few days ago about the 50-case 1982 Mouton Rothschild lot called "The most expensive wine auction lot ever." Here's the link: http://www.vinfolio.com/thewinecollector/2006/11/most-expensive-wine-auction-lot-ever.jsp
