While fine wines may not be to everyone's taste, one expert told CNBC that it's still an industry worth investing in – and you don't have to be super-rich to do so.
Tom Gearing, director of wine investment company Cult Wines, told CNBC Wednesday that there were still opportunities in the market, and now was a "great time" for buyers to get in on some "undervalued stocks."
His comments come as Sotheby's auction house appealed to fine wine fans with expensive taste buds Wednesday. It sold over £600,000 ($901,131) worth of wine Wednesday – including six bottles of Chateau Petrus 1982 for a whopping £19,975 ($30,000).
It comes after the auction house sold 114 bottles of Romanee-Conti for around $1.6 million in Hong Kong in 2014. While a Christie's auction in 2010 saw a private collector splash a record-breaking $304,375 on an imperial-size bottle of Chateau Cheval Blanc.
