After a lacklustre EP 14 campaign, attentions are returning to normality with bid positions increasing by 1.5% throughout the week. However it is noticeable that bid prices are a little softer than pre campaign, no doubt a result of the strengthening pound and weakening euro particularly against the HK dollar over recent weeks.
The total offer value has fallen by 3.6% to £1.6 million as trades are matched although 165 new cases have been made live for sale during the past seven days. Overall market value remains at £4.5 million with the bid to offer ratio rising from recent weeks to 1.85:1.
We are therefore on the look-out for members who are seeking to refresh a portfolio, perhaps free up some capital or maybe looking to reduce storage costs as we hit the summer months. If you wish Cavex to load up your cellar holdings free of charge or provide a no obligation cellar valuation then please do send through your cellar lists to email@example.com. The team will be very happy to help where we can.

CaveX Cru is our newly launched service offering members of CaveX the opportunity to buy exclusive parcels of affordable fine wines for everyday drinking.

The Portfolio Management Partnership
More than ever, keeping a handle on what’s in your portfolio, its provenance, and its value is crucial to maintaining the integrity of your investment wines in-bond. Easy if you have a handful of cases and time on your hands. Not so easy if your collection is significant or you aim to invest more.

Working with a trusted partner with over 30 years of experience in the fine wine business, this service will help you manage your portfolio, guide you on future investments, allow you to trade in only topflight investment wines and most importantly offer you access to one of the most secure wine storage services available to date.
