How do I buy vines?
How do I get wine?
Each vine you own gives you access to 2 bottles per year at a fraction of the cost (vine maintenance + winemaking fees)
Each year we will ask you if you want to receive your wine. If you want your wine, you will need to contribute to the maintenance of the vineyard or pay the small yearly vine maintenance and winemaking fees defined in each vineyard. If one year you decide not to receive wine, you won't need to pay for maintenance. We will still maintain the vines to keep the vineyard healthy and the vines will still be yours.
How many vines can I buy?
Who maintains my vines and makes the wine?
Grand winery works in collaboration with small local vineyards and winemakers that will help maintaining your vines and make your wine. You will be invited to discover and participate to the main steps of production (vines pruning/shaping, harvest, blending, tasting, bottling)
When do I receive my wine?
Your first vintage will be the first vintage bottled after your vine purchase. Each vineyard has a different date for their new vintage release. Please check on each vineyard's page when the next release is available.
In the case of a newly planted vineyard or a newly acquired vineyard, the first wine available might come only 2 years after the first harvest (typically 2 years after your vine purchase and every year after).
Can I make revenue from my vine parcels?
No. You are not allowed to sell this wine unless you have a valid wine license to do so. If this is your intent, you shall consult a specialized attorney. If you do not have one, we will be happy to assist you in your wine venture!
Do I get equity in the vineyard?
What happens if I do not pay for my vine maintenance?
Each year, to receive your wine, you will be required to contribute to the vines maintenance or pay fees for your vine maintenance and wine production. But these fees are not mandatory. If you want to skip one year and have no time to contribute, no Problem! You will still own your vines and we will maintain them for you (to keep a healthy vineyard). But you will not receive the corresponding amount of wine.
Can I make my own wine?
Absolutely! If you want to maintain your own vines, harvest and make your own wine, you are very welcome to do so. We will be happy to assist you with any home winemaking tips and equipment if needed.
