Step 1
Revenue  _ Grand Winery
Buy digital vines
Buy digital vines and receive a digital vine ownership certificate.
We divide vineyards using digital vines (NFTs) to make it easy. Each digital vine is unique and represents a real vine.
Your digital vine is not an equity but simply gives you the rights to the real vine during it a 20-year life cycle.

Step 2
Vineyard Experience  _ Grand Winery
Start your vintner’s journey
Experience the vineyard lifestyle. Visit your vines, enjoy the views and master each characteristics of your own wine.
Although our master winemakers will be crafting your wine, you will be invited to participate to exclusive events and fun workshops.
Step 3
Have your name on the vines and bottles
Your digital vines give you the right to have your name on the real vines and on the bottles.

Did you know?

It takes 5 to 7 years to make wine
  • A vine starts producing mature grapes only 3 to 5 years after you plant it.
  • Once you harvest your first grapes you need to age your wine for a minimum of 2 years (often more)
  • It takes at least 5 to 7 years of investment before a vintner gets to enjoy and sell wine.
Dividing vineyards is easy (now).
  • Blockchain allows us to easily digitize and divide any assets.
  • In the case of vineyards, we digitize each vine and create an NFTs easy to share.
  • The ownership period is established for 20 years.
Smart contracts make it easy
  • When you own digital vines, you own more than plants. You own defined rights to the plant (defined by each vineyard).
  • Standard rights include length of ownership, your name on the vines, prime access to unique bottles at a defined price, events…etc.
Your purchase maintains local traditions
  • Your purchase allows vineyards to renew their vines, invest in new vines and equipment and maintain their local activity.
  • Your participation will help maintain the terroir, local winemaking traditions and the ecosystem. And as you become part of a vineyard you also become part of the rich heritage of winemaking.

FAQ

How do I buy vines?
  • Pre-order your vines. Once we reach the defined limit of vine owners set for a vineyard, your 20-year ownership will be activated.
How do I get wine?
  • Each vine you own gives you access to one bottle per year at production cost (vine maintenance + winemaking fees)
  • Each year we will ask you if you want to receive your wine. If you want wine, you will need to contribute to yearly vine maintenance and winemaking fees defined in each vineyard. If you decide not to receive wine, you will not need to pay for maintenance and your vines will still be yours.
How many vines can I buy?
  • Vines are always sold in 6-vine parcels that produce 6 bottles of wine per year.
  • You can buy as many parcels as you wish, although
    each vineyard sets a limit of vine parcels for sale to public.
Who maintains my vines and makes the wine?
Grand winery works in collaboration with small local vineyards that will maintain 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?
Each vineyard has a different date for their new vintage release. Please check on each vineyard's page when the next release is available.
Can I make revenue from my vine parcels?
No. By owning vines, you only have prime access to the corresponding quantity of wine made by your vines (6 bottles per year for each parcel of 6 vines). 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?
No. We want to keep it simple and affordable to buy and sell small parcels of vines. For this reason your digital vine ownership is not an equity. It simply gives you the rights to the vines for 20 years. In the same way a concert ticket gives you the right to a seat for few hours to enjoy a show, your digital vine will give you the right to a real vine for 20 years to enjoy a vineyard lifestyle. You will be able to buy and sell your vines at pre-defined prices to avoid any speculation.
