Investing in Chapel Down
Be a part of England's wine revolution
17 years ago we embarked on a journey to transform people's opinions about English wine. It's been a long, tough and sometimes frustrating mission. Some thought we were mad. Fortunately some didn’t.
All agreed that there was a lot to do, but we never lost faith, and now much of the work has been done. A secure growing supply of high quality fruit, a winery capable of making world-class wines, hatful's of international awards, a respected and recognised brand, blue-chip customers, a great team of outstanding people and a business that is already profitable are already in place.
Consumers want Chapel Down wines and they want Curious beers and cider. What we need to do is to make a great deal more of them to satisfy their demand. That's where you can help by investing with us.
