Some Background on Ferovinum

Ferovinum is a world-first working capital platform that enables wine & spirits producers and wholesalers to release capital against their inventory.
This allows our clients to re-invest capital (which would otherwise be tied up in stock unproductively), into growth and efficiency projects. For UK producers in particular this tends to be initiatives like brand building, winery expansion, tasting/tourism facilities and, critically, enabling stock to remain on the lees for longer periods of time. The latter is one of the key quality parameters for producing high-quality traditional method sparkling wine (15 months+ ageing before release). This allows producers to compete with the likes of Champagne, and pursue quality over needing to release wine early to release cash.
Since launching our wine producer product in 2020, we’ve already released capital for over 200,000 bottles in the UK and use of the service is growing rapidly as clients begin to take advantage of this new and more efficient way to access additional capital to support the exciting growth taking place in the UK wine sector.
Ferovinum’s technology provides an efficient, innovative alternative to more traditional lending and is suitable for clients large and small.
