The Australian wine industry has a long history. Cut a long story short is a brief perusal of a narration of the industry at a certain era. The first fleet of wine in the broad Australia was made in 1788 after which vines were cut down. Through the year a major breakthrough was seen in the 1830’s & 1840’s with the establishment of wine industries that exported significant amount to England.

I would be lying if I said past wine investors have not seen a boom in sales especially the Bordeaux wine products. To prove me wrong further is evidence by the fact that, a 1982 Lafite-Rothschild bottle was sold at 490USD at auction. The same bottle was sold at a whopping price of 2, 586 USD in 1988. Using simple mathematics brings a 70% annual return yield to the investors who took part in keeping the bottle for six years. You may now be thinking that the wine must have been sold at that price because it is a Bordeaux product. Other wine product also had lucrative impact.
