English Wines Group plc News English Wines Group plc - Acquisition of land ENGLISH WINES GROUP PLC ("the Company") 4th October 2007 English Wines Group Plc are delighted to announce the purchase, subject to completion, of over 100 acres of freehold land on the North Downs. The land is gently sloping, well drained, south-facing chalk farmland which we believe will provide perfect terroir for the fruit to make world class sparkling wine. The selling agents were Humberts Challock office in Kent. Some 70 acres of the land will be planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in April 2008. This will make it the biggest vineyard in Kent. The company continues to secure more high quality acreage under long term supply agreements. Commenting on the land purchase, Frazer Thompson CEO said: "This land is perfect for the growing of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from which we know we can produce and sell world class premium sparkling wine. Demand for Chapel Down continues to exceed our ability to supply, and this land will help to satisfy some of that demand. We expect the first crop to be at Tenterden in October 2010. By 2010,our aim is to be sourcing from over 500 acres of vineyards with 20-30% owned by the Company and up to 45% managed by the Company." For further information please contact: Frazer Thompson English Wines Group plc e-mail:frazer@englishwinesgroup.com Tel: 01580 763 033 Brett Miller Ruegg & Co Limited Tel: 020 7584 3663

English Wine Group is a little gem, Market Cap £8 Million, now into profit, additional vineyards coming to fruition, cannot maintain supply for demand, prices for bottles of wine increasing strongly. Nigel Wray has a significant stake in EWG.

Continue to achieve new brand building premium listings Increase in future supply as new premium vineyards start to produce and we attract new growers The site at Tenterden has been re-valued at GBP2.5m from a valuation of GBP1.23m INTERIM STATEMENT I am pleased to announce the results for the half year ended 30th June 2007. The Group made a pre-tax profit of GBP13,057 for the six months compared with a loss of GBP253,290 in the same period in the previous year.* Overall Turnover has gone up by 11% due to a 25% increase in average selling price (excluding duty). As anticipated, first half volumes were 5% lower than the prior year. However, the mix of sparkling wine sold has increased from 18% to 29% by volume. Cost of sales are down 3% due to lower volume sold and lower delivery costs. Administration and marketing expenses were down 27% reflecting the one-off reduction in marketing and staff expenditure in the first 6 months of 2007. We will concentrate more of our marketing energy into the second half of the year to capitalise on the summer and Christmas seasons. We continue to generate new listings in quality and prestige accounts as a result of our high media profile and wine awards. Discussions are continuing successfully with existing and new growers to increase their acreage of quality vines to ensure more growth in future sales of high quality high margin wines, and your Board remains confident that we will be able to increase both volume and profit substantially in the medium term. REVIEW OF OPERATIONS We continue to make good progress with our key targets:- - Pricing continues to move forward resulting in a 25% increase in average selling price (excluding duty) - Volumes are in line with expectations and supply - Overheads continue to be well controlled - Press coverage continues to stimulate demand ahead of our ability to supply - We continue to seek and attract new growers to improve supply - We recently won Tourism South East Taste of England Excellence award and were runners-up Nationally - Strong support from Conran restaurants, Gordon Ramsay, Gary Rhodes, Selfridges, Fortnum and Mason, Konstam, Roast and other well known premium accounts is driving improved awareness and attitudes. - Distribution in Waitrose, Sainsbury and Thresher shows good rates of sale and excellent margins.

No, It was on several times over the Bank holiday weekend, English wines will be a big story at some point and the price here will spike I am sure, will add later on this week. Nigel Wray is not around for 'small beer' projects, a buyout from a continental enterprise is on the cards soonish IMO.

Took a small nibble today, quite difficult to get in size, will add later this week perhaps, too cheap at < £9M, can't believe the price has not moved after the recent coverage by Sky News at the weekend.

The bit about the 125 new acres seems to be the same old story..... That is that despite....."We continue to be approached by existing and new growers seeking to plant more vines for us".......no new acres have been planted since late 2004/early 2005. Or have I got it wrong? At least the share price has risen to 15p.

05/04/2007 FINAL RESULTS English Wines Group plc announces its final audited results for the year ending 31st December 2006. RESULTS FOR THE YEAR The Group made a pre-tax loss of GBP89,579 compared with a loss of GBP123,497 in the previous year.* Overall turnover on a like for like basis has gone up 26% at GBP2,257,327 due to a 12% increase in the average selling price of premium wines along with the 11% increase in volume of wine sold. Overall cost of sales on a like for like basis are up 18%. The increase is principally due to the volume increase in wine sold combined with the higher level of duty paid sales. Underlying average cost per bottle is down 3% despite the impact of fuel price increases on raw materials costs. Underlying administration and marketing expenses are up 5% on a like for like basis at GBP910,631 due to higher marketing costs. Other operating income of GBP79,174 relates to amounts received from insurers, following the fire in August 2004, for the business income interruption element of the claim being recompense for stock that would have been sold in 2006. OPERATIONS We continue to make good progress on our key targets:- - Pricing continues to move forward resulting in a 12% increase in average selling price of premium wines - Volumes are in line with expectations and supply - Overheads continue to be well controlled - Our winemaker, Owen Elias, won UK Winemaker of the Year 2006 - Press coverage continues to stimulate demand ahead of our ability to supply - We continue to attract new growers - We were runners-up to Green and Blacks in the SME category for Marketing Excellence at the recent Marketing Society awards - Strong support from Conran restaurants, Gordon Ramsay, Gary Rhodes, Selfridges, Fortnum and Mason, Konstam, Roast and other well known premium accounts is driving improved awareness and attitudes. RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES Harvest failure; The risk of harvest failure is partially mitigated by the spread of contracted vineyards across the South East of England. Credit risk ; The group's credit risk is primarily attributable to its trade debtors. Credit risk is managed by running credit checks on new customers and by monitoring payments against contractual terms. OUTLOOK The 2006 harvest was our highest ever and was again of high quality, with very good white and sparkling wine to come. New acreage added since 2005 of 125 acres will become productive in 2008, enabling us to sell more premium wines from 2010 onwards, and adding significantly to profitability. We continue to be approached by existing and new growers seeking to plant more vines for us and it is your Board's view that the medium to long term prospects of the company remain excellent. Paul Brett, CHAIRMAN NOTE * FRS 20 accounting standard requires us to restate our profit to attribute a notional cost of non-cash share option agreements to the business. After adopting FRS 20, the accounts show a reduction in profit of GBP76,024 (2005 restated: GBP12,061) resulting in a Group pre-tax loss of GBP165,603 (2005 restated: GBP135,558). http://www.plusmarketsgroup.com/story.shtml?ISIN=GB0032706284&NewsID=24682
