It all started with the pun in the title. Here is the timeline of how my tweeps responded to it.

Paul Lewis @paullewismoney  Wine investment - Bordeauxing on the ridiculous.

Michael Ware  @HorusConsulting

Paul Lewis @paullewismoney 
“@HorusConsulting: @paullewismoney good pun” >>> it's not a pun, it's financial advice!!!

Sadly the web has yet to find a way to succinctly express a sigh, shake of the head and roll of the eyes after a poor joke.

Stuart Walker @WalkerSah 
Investors end up in Hock?

Odysseus @headedforhades

De Bere Yendor @debere71 “@paullewismoney: Wine investment - Bordeauxing on the ridiculous.” A "corking" joke Sir !

Major concern is that of liquidity...

Sauvignon pennies for rainy day.
Look after the Pinots and the pounds will look after themselves. 

Robin Hames @robinhames 
bit late on this one! But presumably you'd have to be off your Rioja to invest.
Still any port in a storm for some.

So, it’s up to you. But remember…
