U’Winevest for all
“Since June the 15th 2015, thanks to the integration of a sale mandate within our management mandate, any individual, wine amateur or hard investor can benefit from our U’Winevest offer” said Thomas Hébrard, U’Wine founder and President.
“ The principle is simple: anyone can invest from € 1,000 minimum to € 20,000 in the purchase of “rising stars” Grands Crus and decide from day one on the amount they wish to dedicate to their own consumption (i.e. the whole amount, part of it or nothing at all).
U’Wine will then resale on behalf of its customers, between the 5th and 7th year of the investment, the amount initially chosen to be resold. U’Wine has chosen to resale the wines on the B to B market in order to avoid any artificial increase of the prices. U’Wine will then credit its customers with the capital gains. At the end of the 7th year, U’Wine will deliver the bottles that the customers decided to keep for their own consumption to the address of their choice.”
U’Wine customers are also granted access to the U’Wine Club (customers investing more than € 20,000) and can: enter private sales at highly competitive prices, benefit from custom made cellar thanks to our experts’ advices, visit the most prestigious Châteaux of Bordeaux and be invited to prestigious private tasting evenings.
U’Wine, founded by Thomas Hébrard, grand-son of former Château Cheval Blanc owner, finished the 2015 financial year with a € 565,000 capital increase. U’Wine recent impressive media coverage shows that it is most certainly one of the most attractive start-ups promoting a new Bordeaux Grands Crus distribution model.
