Price Data, Critic’s scores & Research Tools
The Wine Owners platform is rich in data and content.
Our proprietary algorithms process millions of rows of incoming pricing data to calculate a Market Level - the price at which a wine is likely to find a ready buyer - based on market supply and spread models. The more liquid the wine the more accurate the price will be. Small production wines from older vintages can be virtually impossible to value and although we try our utmost to find a reference point, sometimes it just isn’t possible. This is hardly a new phenomenon for the wine market.
The Wine Owners average score is the Mean of all scores analysed for a wine that are published by wine writers and critics. For details of the main wine writers' scores that feed into the Wine Owners average mean score, please see the page on wine critics.
The WO average comes in on the conservative side (think Burghound not Parker), so anything above a 95 is a brilliant score.
Research and analysis
If you subscribe to the Collector package (for privates) or the Professional package (for trade) it is possible to research present and historic pricing, produce charts and carry out your own relative value analysis. You will be able to build your own vertical and horizontal analysis using Market Price versus Score and Relative Value Score and/or compare different wines from different vintages on the same chart, some examples here:
The above chart is self-explanatory, the below less so. The Relative Value Score equation is this:
(WO score - 79) * (WO score - 79) * 10 / price
By using this tool, you soon become used to identifying ‘cheap’ opportunities. Any First Growth that registers a double digit score looks good (but will always need further scrutinization), a highly rated super second from a good vintage scoring 20 looks interesting.
Generate your own fully customised graphs. Compare wine against wine(s), against wine indices and financial indices too!
