What is the Market Price?

The Market Price is the best listed price for a wine in the secondary market. Unless otherwise stated, it is standardised to 12x75cl. To find out more about the Market Price, click here.

Why is transactional data most reliable?

Other sources of fine wine price information and indices base their calculations on list prices. These are advertised prices, often collected from sellers who may be advertising wine that they don’t even have in stock. There is no firm commitment to buy or sell at an advertised price. The real value of the wine may be higher or lower than listed. 

Liv-ex can uniquely provide you with prices from real merchant transactions. These are historic trade prices, as well as firm commitments to buy or sell on the market at a given price. All transactions are standardised by condition and tax status, allowing you to make like-for-like comparisons. Our members value this because this because it is real, proven price information. 

How can I value my wine portfolio?

Liv-ex members have various tools available to them to create fast, accurate valuations. Wine Matcher and Automation both enable this.

If you are a private collector or professional outside of the fine wine trade, we can offer a quote for a one-off valuation. Click here to request information. Many reputable merchants also offer this service as complimentary.  

Our guide, How to Value Fine Wine, provides more detailed information on this topic. 

What is a fine wine Index?

Where can I find the Liv-ex Indices?

Liv-ex has created several indices to track the price of fine wine, including the industry benchmark Liv-ex 100. You can find them on our indices page, which is part of our Market Data & Insights section.
