Why Invest in Wine
The fine wine market has outperformed the S&P 500 for the past 20 years. Since Liv-ex launched the Fine Wine 100 Index, an index that tracks the price movement of 100 of the most sought-after wines in the world, the index has risen 270.7%.
PAST PERFORMANCE MAY NOT BE INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS.
The wine market is currently valued at $434.9B and is expected to grow at 6.4% CAGR through 2028 ( source). And in a turbulent year, wine has been a more stable investment than equities.

StartEngine Collectibles lets you diversify your portfolio with an asset that can increase in value as it increases in scarcity. Instead of company quarterly earnings changing the value of your investment, wine can increase in value as it is consumed, leaving fewer bottles on the market.
StartEngine Collectibles lets you invest in one of the world’s rarest wines for as little as $500, and we handle all the logistics:
We anticipate holding our wine assets for a minimum of one year, and a maximum of six years. We intend to pay distributions to the extent we sell some or all of our assets. Otherwise, liquidity for investors would be obtained by transferring or selling their interests in a series.
Invest in a Prestigious Wine
Vieux Château Certan is located on the right bank of the Bordeaux wine region, in the commune of Pomerol. As all wine produced in this appellation, Vieux Château Certan is unclassified, but the estate is long recognized as among the great growths of the region, and by some reckoned comparable to neighboring estate Château Pétrus.
If we reach the maximum funding goal in this series, we plan to purchase en primeur 30 bottles worth of Vieux Chateau Certan 2020 Pomerol.
“En primeur” is a method of purchasing wines while the wine is still in the barrel – i.e. before the wine is bottled. A potential advantage of buying wines en primeur is that the wines may be acquired cheaper than if acquiring the same wine once bottled and released to the market. However, this is not guaranteed – and some wines may even lose value over time. We estimate that our wine assets will be bottled and eligible to be sold between 12 to 18 months after the date we acquire the wine en primeur.
The maximum investment by an individual investor is for shares representing 5% of the total shares in this particular series.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
