foxnil - as you work for Riverside Holdings perhaps you would be good enough to quizz the management for us. I will not be able to attend as not in the country. The fact that planting and production figures are considered as confidential suggests one of the following ... i) a lack of consideration for shareholders ii) those numbers are not what they should be or, iii) EWG is in a very competitive business

Very nice to know that the wine is good ..... BUT, ..... this is a farming business is it not ? I would be grateful if the Company would give us some production figures ... acres planted ... new plantings ... tonnes harvested ... liters produced IMHO - that would give body to the share price The fact that they have increased the price on the bottle or won a quality prize is not much use if production is stagnant which is the impression given by the company reports.

11/12/09 Result of General Meeting The Company is pleased to announce that at the Company's General Meeting held today, all resolutions were duly passed. The Directors of the issuer accept responsibility for this announcement. ... well they got their options approved but where is the incentive ? The BID = 14.50p. Therefore they can pick up £45,000 for just maintaining the share price OR, Is there a danger of the share price falling further ..... poor harvest, rust in the vines, etc. ?

25/11/09 English Wines Group Plc Notice of General Meeting The board of English Wines Group Plc wishes to announce that a General Meeting will be held at the Chapel Down Winery, Small Hythe, Tenterden, Kent TN30 7NG at 10.00 a.m. on Friday 11th December 2009. In July 2009 the Company raised £1.1 million before expenses via the issue of 1.1 million unsecured convertible loan notes at a placing price of £1 per note. Following this fundraising, and as part of the long term incentive plan for the executive team, the board proposes to grant an additional 1 million share options to each of Frazer Thompson (Managing Director) and Richard Woodhouse (Finance Director). The Executive team is key to the long term success of the Company and the board believes it is important that they are appropriately incentivised to deliver this success. The terms are in line with convertible loan notes issued in July. The options will be exercisable at 10 pence per share from July 2013. In addition, the Company will also be granting 1 million share options on the same terms to Guy Tresnan (Sales Director). However, these will be granted under the previously approved Employee Share Option Scheme and do not require further specific shareholder approval. The board believes that these incentive plans are in the best interests of both the Company and its shareholders. The notice of the General Meeting, which includes the business to be considered at the General Meeting along with explanatory notes for the resolution, was sent to shareholders today. ... they got their fund raising at 10p and now must keep the 'Executive team' happy ..... It stinks - IMHO ...'we believe that profits could improve significantly by 2012'... The date keeps getting put back

English wine gets help from space The system can help to optimise harvests, and hopefully wine quality A number of English vineyards have signed up to make use of a satellite imaging service to boost harvests. The satellite measures a vineyard's reflectivity in a number of colours in the visible and infrared. The Oenoview system, first launched in France last year, analyses the images to determine vine leaf density, soil water content and grape bunch sizes. The English Wine Producers trade group said that wines made using the system could be available as early as 2011. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8334688.stm

Company detail on PLUSMarket englishwinesgroup Web Site England remains one of the most tolerant, caring, enterprising, ingenious, creative, stylish, energizing and occasionally eccentric places on Earth. If those values are important to you, then you're English - whether you were born here or not. They are not just English values. They are Chapel Down's values. I think that we have something very special at Chapel Down. Assembled here is a team of highly professional, talented people who share a vision of creating World Class, interesting, distinctive and award-winning wines.

BALANCE SHEET REVIEW The net asset value of the Company as at 30th June was £4,391,749 which includes * Fixed assets of £4,954,640 based on the 2007 valuation of the Tenterden site at £2,500,000. This valuation was prior to the development of the restaurant - "Richard Phillips at Chapel Down"- which is capitalised at cost. * The land and vineyard development at Kit's Coty is also capitalised at cost * £1,676,467 of stock is valued at cost being the lower of cost or net realisable value. * The Company is required to value net assets in accordance with the Company's reporting standard (UK GAAP), which given the nature of the assets (wine stock, land, vineyard), the Directors believe, represents a conservative valuation of realisable value.

30th September 2009 UNAUDITED INTERIM RESULTS FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED 30th JUNE 2009 SUMMARY * Pre-tax loss of £29,092 compared with a profit of £14,408 in the comparative period excluding the effect of the FRS20 share option provisions(note 2) * Turnover down 8% at £1,015,664 due to poor volume harvests in 2007 and 2008 * Gross profit margin has increased to 49% compared to 45% in the prior period * Average selling price (excluding duty) up 8% * The development of our land at Kit's Coty, Aylesford has been successful * Increases in supply of quality fruit as new vineyards start to produce grapes * We have obtained further listings of our wines at upmarket restaurants including The Mercer and Rules * Recent awards and favourable media coverage for our wines have helped us build awareness and position our brand further upmarket. * Although the 2009 crop has not been harvested, initial signs suggest that there will be an improvement over previous years. CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT In the half year ended 30th June 2009, the Group made a pre-tax loss of £29,092 for the six months compared with a profit of £14,408 in the same period in the previous year (excludes the effect of the FRS20 share option accounting adjustment - refer to note 2). This loss was due to the poor harvests in 2007 and 2008 which resulted in lower quantities of stock. There has been a 19% decline in volume of wine sold, but this was substantially offset by the 8% increase in the average selling price (excluding duty) of wine sold. The planting of our new vines at our recently acquired land at Kit's Coty has been successful, with 72 acres of our total 116 acres now planted. We anticipate a small crop from these next year. Discussions are continuing successfully with existing and new growers to increase their acreage of vines to fuel the growth in future sales of high quality, high margin wines. Demand for our wines continues to exceed our ability to supply, with little impact from the "credit crunch" on the demand from our customers. This has enabled us to improve pricing against market trends. Further wine awards and extensive and very positive press coverage, continue to help us move towards our goal as market leader in English Wines, in both volume and quality. Strong support from D & D (formerly Conran) restaurants, Ramsay Holdings, Gary Rhodes, Selfridges, Fortnum and Mason, Konstam, Roast and other well known premium accounts, is driving improved awareness and attitudes, as is the continuous success of our restaurant development Richard Phillips at Chapel Down, which goes from strength to strength. Enhancing our position as one of the leading wine brands in the UK is the most important driver of value in the future. We will therefore continue to invest in our brand to further develop its premium appeal. This `intangible' position is of course supported by net assets. Excluded from these results is the impact of the £1.1m raised on 1st July 2009 via a shareholders loan. If this were included and assuming full conversion of the shareholders loan to equity, then the net assets of the Company, following conversion, would be £5.5m. This is in excess of 10p per share.. Net Debt on conversion of the shareholder loans would be £0.7m or 13% of Net Assets. We continue to generate new listings in quality and prestige accounts including The Mercer (Threadneedle St) and Rules (Covent Garden) as a result of our high media profile, our customer relationship management and further wine awards. We are also delighted to have been awarded the Kent Small and Medium Enterprise of the Year in the Kent Excellence in Business Awards (KEiBA). Although the 2009 crop has not been harvested, initial signs suggest that there will be an improvement over previous years. Your Board remains confident that the medium to long term prospects for the company are excellent.

Tidy little deal ... For every £1 of Convertible Loan they get 10 shares, ( £1.60 - today's value), plus an 8% interest. There is the subscription of 460,923 loan notes to be accounted for. And the third Director is not mentioned in the above announcement. Also, Worship Street Investments Limited and English Wines Group are corporate clients of Rivington Street Corporate Finance. Rivington Street Holdings the owner of Rivington Street Corporate Finance, holds 82,500 Ordinary Shares in the English Wines. Rivington Street Holdings is also the owner of T1ps Investment Management, the Investment Advisers for Worship Street Investments. http://www.prnewswire.co.uk/cgi/news/release_disclose?id=28455 I would like to believe that the Directors are working for our best interests, but have yet to be convinced.

Are there any other wine stocks or even a wine fund? Samuel Samuel, why take the risk? With careful choice this is one commodity that can be stockpiled at home and improve significantly with age. If you actually like the stuff, how could you lose? In a hyper inflationary environment the price of quality wine should increase, demand is virtually guaranteed, middlemen can be avoided and there is little currency risk. 'Funds' rarely do what they 'say on the tin', in addition to the risks associated with the markets in general. I've owned this stock (ewg) for so long I can't even remember what I paid, 'progress' has been pedestrian at best without counting the 'real' losses this has suffered from sterling weakness.
