Ever dreamed of owning a winery but couldn’t afford it? Well, you can. It’s called a virtual winery. You strike a deal renting space and equipment in an existing winery, and fund grape growing and winemaking instead. This way cash flow focuses on what really matters…the product. Legalities and government regulations are fewer as you operate under an existing winery’s licence and are viewed as another label under the winery’s umbrella. You market and sell the wines yourself, via the Internet, phone or word of mouth. Far less risky and expensive, your product could have a pretty good reputation by the time you’re ready to go big time. Certainly something to think about over a glass of vino!
