Please download a copy of our shareholder benefits sign up form below then post or email the completed form and a copy of your Contract Note or Share Certificate, along with your postal address and email address.

On receipt of your welcome pack you will be able to claim your benefits at the Winery and to make purchases using your discounts on this website.

I am a Gold/Platinum Shareholder, how do I set up my online account?

New shareholders will be set up with an online account as
part of the welcome process. 

If you are an existing shareholder without a shareholder account on our website or are unable to access your account please email shareholder@chapeldown.com with your details and shareholder number and the team will advise you.


Once logged in to www.chapeldown.com as a shareholder you will view products at your shareholder price (where applicable) and add them to your basket in the usual way.

• Still and Sparkling Wines - 33% discount

As a Silver Shareholder you will hold between 500 and 199 shares. You will have received a single use code as part of your welcome pack which can be applied at the Checkout of our website once logged in to your shareholder account.

How do I claim my shareholder benefits in the Winery shop?

We are no longer issuing physical shareholder privilege cards. Please mention to the staff at the till that you are a Chapel Down Shareholder and, if possible, whether you are a Silver, Gold or Platinum shareholder. A staff member will then ask for your full name, your postcode and your shareholder number and they will locate you on our shareholder database.
You may be asked for proof of ID which displays your name (such as a bank card or driver’s licence). See your welcome pack for more details.

WHAT ARE PLATINUM SHAREHOLDER BENEFITS AND HOW DO I QUALIFY FOR THEM?

The Platinum level of benefits was introduced specifically for our crowdfund investors who invested in 10,000 shares or more during the 2021 campaign with Seedrs. These investors were eligible for 2 one-off benefits in addition to the full set of Gold benefits. These benefits will be delivered to eligible Platinum shareholders in Spring/Summer 2022.

New shareholders investing in 10,000 shares or more via Aquis will be categorised as Platinum shareholders and may be offered future exclusive benefits but do not currently gain any ongoing benefits in addition to the advertised set of Gold benefits in the above table.

How do I book a Guided Tour?

All shareholders are welcome to visit the Winery and join a scheduled guided tour.

Gold and Platinum Shareholders are entitled to a complimentary guided tour and tutored wine tasting for the shareholder and one guest. This is an annual entitlement.

The shareholder should book online using the email address registered with Chapel Down to receive their shareholder benefits and enter the 6 digit unique code towards the end of the checkout process on our Book A Tour page.
