Germany’s leading business newspaper „Handelsblatt“ published a list of the 20 best German wine estates to invest in, established by the Swiss Wine-Stocks company.

Germany’s wine producers were not ranked according to the quality of their wines, but according to wine investment points. “On the basis of these data, we get an overall wine investment points total. The larger the total, the larger is the likelihood that this winery would be a good investment” says Wine-Stocks CEO Freund.

7 indicators were used: Performance of the most traded wines of a winery over a longer period, the average price of all traded wines of a winery, performance of all traded wines over the last twelve months, performance of all traded wines over a longer period, the volume of traded wines, number of wines of a winery with significant commercial quantities and the maximum price of the most expensive wine of the winery. All data used come from auctions worldwide.

For more information, see here (in German).

Here is the listing, with the Wine Investment Points in paranthesis.

A couple of months ago, a press release indicated that Christoph Tyrell, who has no children and who is on his mid-60s, has arranged the succession of the Karthaeuserhof with his cousin Albert Behler. Albert Behler lives in New York City, where he is President and CEO of the Paramount Group, one of the largest privately-owned real estate companies in New York City.
