If it can be said that wine tasting is subjective, it probably follows that the monetary value of wine is even more subjective. Whether it’s the price of a single bottle, an auction lot, or an entire collection, the estimated value of that wine becomes one of the most important factors in determining its intrinsic value to a buyer, collector or investor. For most wines, wine enthusiasts usually make their own decisions about a wine’s perceived value. But, when thousands of dollars are on the line, often a professional wine appraiser is consulted.
Wine appraisers are experts who help wine lovers protect their wine collections by inventorying them and giving them value, often an essential need if wine collections are insured. Appraisals are also often necessary for purposes of charity donations, damage claims, divorce settlements, estate planning, and/or liquid investment.
Join us as we speak with Martin Weiner, owner of Vintage Wine Appraisers, as well as founder of the Los Angeles School of Wines, editor and publisher of Martin’s Guide to Wine Bargains, and wine editor of Beverage Industry News. An author, correspondent, and lecturer, Martin has extensive experience in appraising wines. We’ll hear just a few examples of why and how this valuable service can be used to determine a wine’s true market value.
