Cellar Plan

If you are looking to build a wine portfolio, a cellar plan with IG Wines is the ideal solution. We provide a personalised service, offering expert advice and guidance to help tailor your cellar, we provide you with the tools to monitor your investment too. Whether you are building a portfolio for investment, for drinking or for both, we can help you plan and build your ultimate cellar. Either way, you will have access to our full range of services.

How it works

Quite simply, we help you build a portfolio of wine by making monthly payments from as little as £100. You can also choose to make a one off payment to get your cellar off to a good start. Payments can be made by direct debit or by cheque should you prefer. There is no minimum sign up length and you can opt out of the cellar plan at any point.

We assess portfolios holistically and make strategic purchases and recommendations to ensure that your portfolio is balanced, maximising your wines' drinking window and investment horizon. Buying and selling opportunities are identified based on market-timing and - if you prefer to drink your wines - we will recommend wines that you can lay to drink at different intervals in the future.
