Wine production is returning to Los Pandos. Our specific goal is to construct a bodega on this established vineyard. When completed this high investment return , project evaluate the information collected by the University Complutense’s (Madrid), this information will be used to formulate a “performance map”. This scientific evidence will be deployed ensuring optimum yields.
This specialist vineyard investment started in December 2008 leading to the initiation of the Founding Syndicate Fund 1. This became a massive success due to its simplicity and its guaranteed fixed term yields. This first fund raised a €1,000,000 in five months.The first slice of funding was used to start the initial phases of development.
There is now a second fund looking to raise another €1,000,000 to facilitate the building of a bodega, a vineyard for experimenting with various techniques. This will also assist in the trialing of several different procedures in order to improve quality and yields.
We believe this high investment return fund to be on its own within the current investment market. With guaranteed returns of between 17% and 25% over a fixed 2 year term this gives the investor clear exit strategy.
Funds raised via Syndicate Fund Two will go to further refining the progress of the vineyard:-
Phase Two - testing of soil
Organisation and implementation of weather stations
A 2 year study into specific plantation locations allowing us to determine which grape types are best suited.
We will analyise the need for machinery on the 2nd phase of the bodega which will produce wine from several varieties. The above processes are necessary to establish the best use of the the vineyard and its yield. This further refining will have a positive impact on the overall profitabilty of this vineyard.
Wine producing has changed from a technological standpoint and this has made it easier to produce a better quality wine. Not every industry expert agrees with this, as many of the most respected names favour a more authentic way of wine making. Nicolas Joly, consultant for biodynamic wine-growing, said: "the wine-grower must decide whether he wants histurn into a commercial drink.The task is to satisfy the market without losing the characteristics of each wine.
This vineyard investment will allow optimum levels in terms of quality and production.
A vineyard investment in the Alamnsa region will have new scientific fermentation capabilities. The wine made will mature on site and will be kept under the careful supervision of trained experts. This business falls under the Castilla la Mancha government grant scheme, and when the business is operational, the scheme will get up to 50% of the build cost returned.
