The Wine and Spirits Trade Association - a prominent UK industry body – has published a wine investment guide. Incidences of wine fraud have made the headlines numerous times this year, and the WSTA guide aims to prevent collectors and investors from falling prey to rogue traders.

As well as advising collectors to choose "a reputable merchant", the WSTA encourages buyers to do their own price research and to use Liv-ex.com for independent valuations. The full guide is available here.

Cellar Watch is an invaluable online tool for collectors and investors as it provides professional-level access to Liv-ex price data and Cellar Watch valuations. To find out more about Cellar Watch, or to sign up for a free Price Watch subscription, please click here.
