A sparkling year of gains for the fine wine market’s broadest index

  • The Liv-ex 1000 has now recorded a full year of gains. 
  • The Champagne 50 leads regional performance over the same period. 
  • The Rest of the World was the best performing sub-index in August.  

The Liv-ex 1000 index has now recorded a full year of gains. The index rose 1.3% in August to close at 385.8.  

Year-to-date, it is up 8.3%. This month marks another all-time high for the broadest measure of the fine wine market.  

Regional performance

Before the start of the autumn La Place campaign, the Rest of the World and Italy led price performance. Thanks to a rise of 2.5% in August, the Rest of the World 50 is now the best-performing sub-index year-to-date. 

The Italy 100, which has had a more sluggish 2021, was the second-biggest riser last month, up 1.6%. 

The Bordeaux 500 followed suit, up 1.5%. Another month of gains helped the Champagne 50, which also rose 1.5% in August, to maintain its position as the best-performing sub-index over one year.
