This paper examines calendar anomalies, in particular, the monthly effect in the international wine exchange market. The empirical findings suggest that there is a March effect for the Liv-ex Fine Wine 500 Index, a May effect for the Liv-ex Fine Wine 100 Index and the Liv-ex Claret Chip Index and a June effect for the Liv-ex Fine Wine Investables Index. We find that the market risk is higher in March and June for the Liv-ex 500 Index and the Liv-ex Investables Index, respectively. However, this higher market risk is not the cause of the monthly effect.
