Unique Equity for Wine Buffs - Own a Part of an English Vineyard!

Unique Equity for Wine Buffs - Own a Part of an English Vineyard!

Amber Valley Wines, an English Wine vineyard in the East Midlands, are presenting a unique opportunity for members of the public. Launching at the Derbyshire Food & Drink Festival on the 18th and 19th of May 2013 at Elvaston Castle Country Park, this initiative means people will be able to own equity in this ambitious vineyard and winery project in the beautiful Amber Valley region of Derbyshire.

It’s a first for an English vineyard. Amber Valley Wines has created 2000 shares – each one a unique opportunity for people to invest in one of England’s newest and brightest rising viticultural stars. It’s an exciting project with a long-term vision. Over two acres of vines have already planted, and a mosaic of more vineyards throughout the lush and verdant Amber Valley is set to follow in early 2014. Their first commercial crop will be harvested later that year.

The shares at £75 each will earn their owners dividends in wine, with each share yielding up to 18 bottles of English wine in return for the investment made - the perfect opportunity to experience the magnificent splendour of Derbyshire in a glass for themselves. As a shareholder this represents a substantial saving on the Recommended Retail Price of each bottle. Each shareholder will receive numerous special benefits along with invitations to attend exclusive events and meetings throughout the year.

An ideal gift opportunity shares can be bought for that special wine buff in your life and even choose the design of your own label!  A little Amber Valley magic that will give a great return.

Barry Lewis and Duncan Mercer, the partners and directors behind Amber Valley Wines, will carefully re-invest shareholders’ money by using it to increase the area of land into which the vines are planted – ensuring their plans to open a winery bring in an excellent return for investors.

Barry Lewis:
“We want to appeal to the wine buffs out there in opening up this opportunity to invest in our vineyards and our vision of creating a unique English vineyard region here in Derbyshire, with a unique local identity and wider appeal.”

Duncan Mercer:
“This will give our investors an opportunity to help us shape Amber Valley Wines into a successful enterprising organisation into the future.  It is already capturing lots of attention so it will be very much first come first served!“
