The U’WINE GRANDS CRUS 2 model

U’Wine Grands Crus 2 (UWGC 2) is a Bordeaux-based wine negociant and distributor of Grands Crus. As a wine intermediary, its activity consists of selecting the “best wines” and offering them to end consumers. UWGC 2’s business model is based on “staggered sales”, which consists of buying wine en-primeurs and marketing it when it is close to its peak consumption (i.e. approximately 3/6 years after the purchase of the wines en-primeurs). UWGC 2 wishes to raise funds until 30 September 2022 to finance the purchase of the wines that will constitute its stock. UWGC 2’s stock will essentially include the 2021 en-primeurs vintage for Bordeaux wines and domain wine allocations (2018 to 2020 vintages) for wines from Burgundy, Rhône Valley, Italy, and other great terroirs.
