HOW VFA WORKS:

 

 

We work together with vineyard owners, wineries and others to set financial goals, outline a roadmap to get there and implement data-driven methods for tracking progress, re-assessing direction and revealing new ways to improve operations.

 

 

We work with their financial institutions to develop and secure sensible loan packages.

 

We work with soil scientists and viticulturists to identify the most profitable way to develop or re-develop your vineyard for the long-term.

 

We work together with investors to time market entry and exit and manage business profitably during operations.

 

We work with CPAs and appraisers to provide AVA appraisals.
