THE CHÂTEAU CLARISSE PROJECT
A gem of the Puisseguin Saint-Émilion appellation
Olivia and Didier Le Calvez, seasoned luxury hotel managers, dreamt of producing a wine that matched their high standards. In 2009, after several years searching, they created Château Clarisse by choosing some of the best plots on the famous Saint-Émilion limestone plateau.
Immediately, under Stéphane Derenoncourt's expert guidance, they undertook an ambitious restructuring of the vineyard to produce the best grapes.
Château Clarisse, found in the best restaurants around the world
At the same time, they developed an impressive distribution network: Château Clarisse is served in more than 100 restaurants in over 20 countries from New York to Singapore. These restaurants have over 100 Michelin stars between them.

An innovative approach to funding
Today, these restaurants are asking for older vintages of Château Clarisse. Olivia and Didier Le Calvez want to buy and renovate a building and at the same time to finance the expansion and storage of older vintages.
To do this, they want to involve wine lovers by using an innovative form of financing: the “WineBond®”, a bond with interest paid in wine.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED?
The WineFunding concept is simple and innovative:
AND THE INTERESTS IN WINE
- You lend money to Château Clarisse to finance their project
- The Château reimburses you every year in EUROS and pays you interest with bottles delivered straight to your door.
With this innovative approach, the vigneron has immediate access to the capital required for their project. Meanwhile, you have, after four years, recouped your original investment along with your interest in wine. The effect of inflation is neutralized and you avoid the natural price increase of the wine. The total crowdfunded investment is secured against the company’s assets. The interest paid in wine are offered to WineFunders at preferential rate as they are ambassadors for the Chateau. Your investment is progressively reimbursed at the end of each 12-month period (beginning in November 2018), but your interest in wine is sent at the beginning of each 12-month period (at the beginning of 2018) this is so you can start enjoying your investment sooner!
