TURNOVER: circa £500,000 p.a.

Business Overview

Vexus is exclusively retained to find a buyer for this award winning British vineyard. Over the last 40+ years, our client has created a well known brand offering customers a range of award winning still and sparkling English wines.

Market Leading Business with 40+ years of Goodwill

After a period of selling their product through major retailers and supermarkets, the current business model is a ‘direct sale’ process where all products are sold directly to customers via their website and visitors to the vineyard. The visitor programme is promoted via a selection of carefully chosen sales promotion activities. The business is located in a busy South East location popular with tourists; the vineyard currently attracts around 30,000+ visitors every year who travel from far and wide for vineyard tours and wine tasting.

A new owner has the opportunity to invest in the business in order to further develop it. Investment could be used to increase capacity and range of products. Investment could also help re develop the site and facilities as well as increasing the onsite visitor revenues.

30,000+ Visitors Every Year

Within the business is a highly experienced and regarded team who assist the vendors in the day to day running of the business. The vendor is happy to facilitate a mutually agreeable handover period.

Reason for Sale

Our client has built a solid business which is highly scalable and ready for the next phase of business growth. They believe the business would benefit from becoming part of a larger organization with the expertise and resources to take the opportunity to the next level and drive business growth.

The Opportunity

Ideally, we seek an acquirer with the requisite experience and resources to take this business to the next level. Consideration will also be given to other buyers with strong market or client synergies looking for a scalable ’bolt-on’ business opportunity.

  • Fully Proven, Successful Business Model
  • Significant Intellectual Property Rights
  • 40+ years of Goodwill & Reputation
