The Other Bordeaux: Find Great Wines Before Great Wines Find Fame
In the 1950s you could buy Penfolds Grange for $1.50...
... because it was new and unknown even though it was an extraordinary wine. It wasn't until the 1980s that the reputation and price of Grange began to rise sharply and a bottle of the 1951 is now worth $65,000.
But fast forward to 2018 and apps like Vivino allow us to identify the new wines that taste exceptionally good and share this knowledge with everyone who might want to know, instantly. As a result, unknown but delicious wines - like Grange was unknown and delicious throughout the 1950s, 60s, and 70s - can now become famous very fast, so if you want to get them while they are still undervalued, you also have to move quickly.
This therefore is the job I do for my clients: I identify the very best and most undervalued wines by using data from Vivino.
