24/07/08 English Wines Group announces new restaurant development at it's Chapel Down Winery in Tenterden. EWG has teamed up with Celebrity TV Chef, Richard Phillips to launch a restaurant with a style, service and menu that fits with its award winning Chapel Down English wines. Richard started his career working under the Roux brothers as the youngest Commis Chef at Le Gavroche in London. He worked his way up the ranks, with an 8 month stint in France. He then moved on to work for the Marco Pierre White empire of restaurants, then as Executive Chef of the Schrager hotel group chains in London. Richard is now the chef/patron of 'Thackeray's' in Tunbridge Wells, one of the best restaurants in Kent which gained a Michelin star in its first year. He is also a partner in the fine dining restaurant 'Hengist' in Aylesford and The Plough Gastro Pub in Amersham. Richard, seen regularly on 'Ready Steady Cook' and ITV's Daily Cooks, commented, "The opening of the restaurant at Chapel Down is an opportunity to further develop the trend towards great British cooking, using local products and premium English Wines." The restaurant will be operated by Kentish Dining Rooms, under a commercial lease agreement with EWG which will be the sole supplier of wines and beers. The restaurant seats up to 106, and has a private chef's table dining room to accommodate up to 18 people. Frazer Thompson, CEO of English Wines, commented, "We sell our wines to the very best restaurants in London. We have found that really good restaurants outside London still remain few and far between. Kent, however, is going through a significant transformation. What we have created with Richard Phillips at Chapel Down will be a catalyst for an acceleration of the trend towards great local food, imaginatively prepared and served and complimented by our own Chapel Down wines. It's a restaurant for the whole of Kent to feel proud about and for us to reflect the brand values of Chapel Down." NOTES TO EDITOR Richard Phillips @ Chapel Down will open in July and is now taking reservations on 01580 761616 or visit (site fully operative from end July). The restaurant, on the site of Chapel Down's famous vineyard in Tenterden, Kent, will see the introduction of state of the art kitchen facilities along with the very best in dining comfort in a spectacularly beautiful setting. The food and wine will aim to bring a new dimension to eating out in Kent with customers encouraged to experiment and enjoy a completely original Kentish experience, and will delight and surprise the 50,000 visitors that English Wines Group estimate visit the site each year. Up to 18 diners will also have the opportunity to eat and drink at the new `Chef's table'. The Chef's table is unique experience for patrons to enjoy a personal service from the chef and his team. ..... now why does that bring Fishworks, (FSH), to mind ??..

May 16, 2008 English Wines Group Intends To Compete Head On With The Grand Crus Of Champagne And Chablis, But Not Quite Yet By Charles Wyatt .......................... Take a look at a map and it becomes clear why both the French and the English are taking such an interest in wine grown in the south east of England. Reims is only 150 kilometres south of Dover and the temperature over an average year is only one degree centigrade lower across the Channel in England. The big attraction, however is the price differential for land. Agreed the price of good land has gone up in this country from £4,000 an acre to over £6,000 in recent times, due to the farce over biofuels, but that is as nothing compared with the price of an acre within the champagne Appellation D'Origine ControlĂ©e (AOC) around Reims. Just to the south of the champagne area is Chablis, another famous AOC, which covers an area to the north of Burgundy. Chardonnay is the grape for Chablis and Champage, with pinot noir as a back up. This insight into the grapes grown in this region of northern France is essential for gaining an understanding of the future strategy of English Wines. The soil is Kimmeridge Clay, with outcrops of chalk, and it extends from Sancerre to the west of Chablis up to the White Cliffs of Dover. Terroir, the quality imparted to the grape from being grown in a specific region, is crucial, and in France there is an endless debate on terroir, with particular reference to the grand crus, which are the best wines in the region. Clearly English Wines has been aware that this chalky soil does not stop at Dover, but continues up onto the North Downs. It is therefore possible to grow chardonnay and pinot noir, the noble grapes of France, in south east England and this means that the company can compete with the more expensive wines from the regions at the southern end of this chalky belt. Just as an idea of price, a Chablis 1er Cru 'Fourchaume' 2005 Boudin sells for £12.99 in this country after paying duty. ...............[tt_news]=45739&tx_ttnews[backPid]=761&cHash=6eb8bac2f8
Frazer Thompson, CEO of English Wines Group, talks about his company in this video, filmed at the recent Master Investor 2008 show.
I'm still looking for a chart to put in the header - that of Plus Markets does not work.....
Good work mate, why the change of tact ? Will look to add again this week,
Another large buy today, no-one is watching this baby as it slowly rises. good luck.
Piedro, Now a profitable business with a strong growth factor, more land/vineyards and this will help meet demand in the next year or two, settle down.
As usual - a very sloppy set of accounts....... they hide more than they say....and badly presented... AIMHO Basically, I find it difficult to trust the directors.... (of the t1ps clan I believe).....they could make a bit more effort with their presentation and more detail. IMO - over the years they have not been completely honest with us over the quantity of land planted...... that's my opinion. The accounts seem to say all the right things so will accept them till see otherwise..........
25th April 2008 English Wines Group plc EPIC: EWGP Final Results to 31st December 2007 English Wines Group Plc (`The Company' or `English Wines') is pleased to announce its final audited results for the year ending 31st December 2007. Results for the year The Group made a pre-tax profit of £157,543 compared with a loss of (£89,579) in the previous year.* Gross profit is up 28% at £1,048,240. Overall turnover has gone up 10% at £2,476,026 due in part to an 18% increase in the average selling price (excluding duty) of premium wines along with a 5% increase in overall volume of wine sold. Costs have been well maintained in a year of increasing raw material and fuel prices. Overall, cost of sales are down 1% and the underlying average cost per bottle is down 5%. Administration and marketing expenses are down 10% on a like for like basis at £820,029 mainly due to the efficient use of PR and the internet. Other operating income of £15,629 relates to amounts received from insurers for the business income interruption element of our claim following the fire in August 2004, being recompense for stock that would have been sold in 2007. All income relating to the business income interruption claim has now been fully recognised. Operations We continue to make good progress on our key targets:- - Pricing continues to move forward resulting in an 18% increase in average selling price (excluding duty) of premium wines without impacting demand growth - Volumes are in line with expectations. - Customer relationships are well managed and demand remains very strong. - 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 - Strong support and interest from key National accounts including Waitrose, Sainsbury and Marks and Spencer - Export opportunities are growing - Overheads continue to be well controlled - Media coverage and marketing continues to stimulate demand ahead of our ability to supply - We continue to attract new growers to supply premium grapes - We are in the process of acquiring 116 acres of freehold land on the North Downs, of which 72 acres will be planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in May 2008. STRONG BUY.
Final results due out end of April, quote " will move into profit and share price is a no-brainer from here, alot of upside." All the best.
chutes01 - Thank you for waking me up. Still not found a chart to put in the header.......
Finals out in around 3 weeks, excellent value here, although someone was mugged today for 5000 shares @ 17p. Could see profitability and re-rating.
Up again today, a director taking up warrants at 15p, who wouldn't !!
The aquisition of additional land is very significant here Piedro, and at the moment they cannot keep up with the demand for their wines, fabulous story developing here IMO. And they are now profitable.
Moving at last. The new vines coming into production in 2008 should give the cash for planting.
