Dreaming of owning a wine farm and producing vinous stunners? A brand-new wine estate investment opportunity might just be your ticket… The Newton Johnson family has recently confirmed their co-founding of Hemelzicht Vineyards situated in the world-renowned Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. In a first for South Africa, this groundbreaking opportunity allows the public to own shares in a luxury wine business with a unique unitised investment model.
The Hemelzicht Vineyards investment model allows for ownership starting at R1 million and the opportunity to craft wines under the guidance of an experienced winemaking team and professional management. The investment further offers potential capital growth, no servicing costs, as well as liquidity. Dividends are paid out to owners in top-quality wine, luxury accommodation amongst the vines on the estate, and annual cash dividends.
Director of winecellar.co.za, and co-founder and CEO of Hemelzicht Vineyards, Roland Peens, brings almost two decades of fine wine business experience to the venture. “Hemelzicht Vineyards presents a rare opportunity to buy into a wine business in the heart of the Hemel-en-Aarde amongst top Pinot Noir producers such as Newton Johnson, Hamilton Russell, Storm and Crystallum. No other wine category sells out as fast as Hemel-en-Aarde Pinot Noir. There is low supply globally, and this farm is in a prime position to produce world-class wine. With 50% of the shares already spoken for, we are also assured of the demand for this type of unitised investment.”
At 60-hectares, Hemelzicht Vineyards is spearheaded by winemaking duo Nadia and Gordon Newton Johnson and is set to produce 110,000 bottles annually. The prime terroir will be organically and sustainably farmed to produce a majority of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
