NEW YORK – OCTOBER 22, 2020 Acker, the world’s destination for fine and rare wine and America’s oldest wine shop and leading wine auction house, has launched Acker Wine Markets, a data-backed and insight-driven digital platform that will provide invaluable information to wine collectors and investors on the fine wine market. The new tool, available to Acker Wines account holders, stands as the most comprehensive wine indexing tool and investment database currently available to collectors and investors, bringing nearly twenty years of wine auction data to assist in shaping one’s overall investment portfolio.
With over 200 proprietary, fine wine indices, the Markets tool represents the most sophisticated and in-depth look at wine trends that exists in the market. The platform is designed to enable users to follow year-over-year changes to regional, vintage, and producer-specific trends within the wine auction space, and even brackets significant vintages for wines and their overall performance, such as the 1993 Red Burgundy vintage as a whole, the 1982 Bordeaux vintage, and many other significant vintages. Additionally, Acker Markets allows users to compare historical wine pricing and trends to commonly used equities indices like the Dow Jones, S&P 500, gold, silver, and more.
Acker Markets amplifies Acker’s commitment to offering personalized, polished, and expert service in all areas of fine and rare wine and investment. By creating an account on the Acker website, users will have access to Acker Wine Markets and its analytical tools and indices. The firm’s new website is also host to a “My Account” section, personalized to each user, giving them the power to manage every aspect of their wine buying and shopping experience, and utilize the Acker Wine Markets tool to view an in-depth account of sales trends throughout time.
“After years of perfecting this uniquely robust innovation, we are thrilled to share our new Acker Wine Markets tool with wine lovers and collectors,” said Acker CEO, Irvin Goldman. “There is no other platform in the industry like it, and Acker is proud to provide wine collectors with this indispensable information to further guide them on their wine investment journey. Whether well-versed in wine collecting, or satisfying the curiosities of a burgeoning collector, Acker Wine Markets allows all wine lovers to immerse themselves into the world of fine and rare wine and stay on top of trends.”
