Purchase of Wine
Purchase of wine exclusive of VAT

Purchase Of Wine Exclusive Of VAT

At RareWine Invest, you can buy and store wine without customs duties, taxes, and VAT. You can purchase and own wine without VAT because the wine is stored in bonded warehouses. This is done through Nordic Freeport, a sister company to RareWine Invest, which operates the Nordic region's only bonded warehouse for wine and spirits and also has storage capacity in bonded warehouses abroad.

Professional handling and storage Optimal storage at Nordic Freeport

Professional Handling And Storage

Nordic Freeport ensures that your wines are delivered to a bonded warehouse where they are stored in your name. Specially trained staff receive and handle the wines, ensuring that they are handled and stored correctly. Nordic Freeport has storage capacity at several locations in Europe.

The wine is labelled with your investor ID, which ensures your anonymity while never leaving any doubt as to who owns the wine. The storage itself takes place under optimal conditions, where humidity and temperature are kept stable. It also ensures that the wine is not exposed to sunlight or other harmful light, and that vibrations from heavy traffic, for example, are not a problem.

Nordic Freeport is based in Vester Hassing - 15 minutes drive north of Aalborg - and has the same owners as RareWine Invest but operates as an independent company with the sole purpose of handling and storing wine and spirits for RareWine Group, as well as investors through RareWine Invest.

The storage facilities can be visited by appointment during normal office hours, so as an investor you always have the opportunity to inspect your wine investment, and of course you have the opportunity to have your wines delivered upon payment of duty, tax, and VAT.

Investor portal


As an investor, you get access to the online investor portal, My RareWine Invest, so you can access your portfolio anytime and keep an overview of your investment. At the same time, we keep an eye on developments in the world's wine markets through daily trading, and we will contact you if any development impacts your particular investment. This can be either 'buy' or 'sell' recommendations based on your portfolio or relevant observations about the general market.

On the investor portal, MyRareWineInvest, the estimated value of your wines will be updated continuously. The value is an indication that reflects the current availability based on asking prices and trade data from third-party providers such as the UK wine exchange, Liv-ex, and In other words: We help you always keep a complete overview of your wine investment.

The price indications on MyRareWineInvest are based on trading data from various sources and are, therefore, only indicative. The actual market price may vary from the data-based price indication.

Day-to-day individual transactions can cause fluctuations in the data that do not represent the actual market value. This is why our specialists manually value your wines when you wish to realize a position, allowing us to provide you with the best possible guidance for an efficient sale.

Rare Wine Invest has the lowest costs

RareWine Invest Has The Lowest Costs

Ongoing costs

Every investment involves a cost, and while an asset manager, in addition to trading costs, typically charges between 1% and 3% annually to manage a securities depository, the total running costs associated with wine investment at RareWine Invest are 0.7% annually. This covers handling, storage, and insurance.

RareWine Invest focuses on trading, so running costs are kept as low as possible. Thus, the cost level of wine investment through RareWine Invest can compete with both banks and pension funds, even though it is about handling and storing physical goods.


Trading costs

The positions in your portfolio are offered to you at the same conditions and prices* as international professional wine merchants.

When the return is to be realized, and the wines are sold, this is done in consignment sale with a fixed commission rate of between 5% and 10%, determined based on portfolio size - the larger the sale, the smaller the commission.

*Market price can be higher and lower than RareWine's purchase price. The market price is determined based on our trading data and international price information databases.


Investment Costs

Many have asked us the question over the years: Why not just invest on your own? That is also possible, but a thorough knowledge of wine and investment or even a good investment tip is still insufficient. Many tend to forget that, as an amateur investor, you can expect to buy wine at a price that includes the wine merchants’ profit margin and VAT. The wine merchant’s profit is permanently lost, whereas, in practice, the VAT is lost unless you invest through an operating company that can deduct VAT. If you sell your wine, which typically involves an auction house, you pay a fee to the auction house that is often more than 30% of the total price paid by the buyer. For an investor, the auction house is a price-increasing intermediate link that substantially reduces the value of your investment. With RareWine Invest, you get an investment model that does not dilute your return but maximizes it. RareWine Invest sells wine for investment without adding the wine merchant's profit margin, and when you have the wine delivered to a bonded warehouse, it is done without adding duty, tax, and VAT. You can always sell the wine again and this is always at market price when you sell on commission through RareWine.

Purchase And Sell At Market Price

As an investor with RareWine Invest, you buy wine at the international market price without the addition of trading costs. This means that the price you pay corresponds to what the wine can be sold for on the international wine market.

RareWine's extensive international trading network allows RareWine to efficiently sell your wine at a price that reflects the supply in the global wine market.

Wines traded through RareWine Invest are always traded at the international market price. This is only possible when you buy wine at the same place as the wine merchant, thus skipping a step and avoiding the merchant's margin.

Although wine is a physical asset, a wine investment through RareWine Invest is relatively liquid. The marketability of wine varies from wine to wine, but in practice, it takes between two weeks and three months to sell your wine portfolio.

Initially, I considered buying investment wine privately and being responsible for storage, etc., but I soon realized that it was far easier to have RareWine Invest manage all of this, including purchasing, handling, storage, insurance, sale, and not least investment advice
