The art of enjoying and investing in fine wine is not reserved for just the aficionado. Whether sharing a dinner with some of your most discerning clients, attending a special fine dining event, or simply dining with good friends, the art of sharing wine is a pleasure that is part hedonistic and part cerebral. While certain collectors of fine wine invest with the sole intention of selling their wines to achieve “liquid” financial returns in the future, many invest with the intention of never selling their assets, but rather to enjoy their wines later, when they hold a far greater market value and deliver greater pleasure upon being consumed. Simply knowing that you paid $50 for a bottle of wine several years earlier that is now offered on the restaurant menu for $500, certainly delivers the satisfaction of a good investment as you pay your $25 corkage fee and enjoy your meal.

The Wharton Club of South Florida is proud and honored to feature Mr. Karl Elderkin, Founder and Managing Partner of Athenian Venture Partners and Wharton MBA Alum, where Karl will select ten wines of Bordeaux that he considers to have been superior investments over the past decade or longer. We will all enjoy a fine 3 course dinner, prepared especially by the chef at Café Vienna for this event. As we enjoy how the variety of wines enhances each course, we will also discuss the more cerebral aspects of the wines that we will be enjoying. Karl is well known among his peers for his oenophile knowledge of the industry, and is happy to share some insights with fellow Wharton Alumni. The evening will be a unique and engaging experience and we hope you can join us.
