Wine, Whiskey, and Spirits

Depending on how you look at it, wine is either the newest old alternative assets, or the oldest new one.

Wine has performed spectacularly well during the 2022 downturn, and thanks to platforms like Vinovest, Cult Wines, Vint, and BrightCellars, you can now own full bottles & fractional shares of the world’s finest wines.

Spirits like whiskey and tequila have a place in our bellies, and increasingly, a place in our portfolios.

I read your emails pretty religiously. Your issue on investing in tax liens is one of my absolute favorites. Great coverage for an otherwise totally grey area that seems to have little mindshare within the broader REI community.

Alts is the only email newsletter I've read from start to finish from day one. The effort that Stefan & Wyatt provide is the next-level analysis you've been waiting for. They break down each asset in detail, metric by metric, and serve it up in a brief email with graphics and links.

I've recently discovered the Alts newsletter, and am enjoying it. They don't strictly focus on digital assets, which actually helps it keep it more unique in my opinion.

Alts brings me unique investment opportunities and insights that I wouldn’t have known about otherwise. For me, it’s a simple and enjoyable way to stay informed on financial topics that are way outside of the mainstream news sources.
