Please help me secure the future of winebound™ until social distancing measures are lifted and we can host in-person events again.

by Fabio Adler in London, England, United Kingdom

Setting the scene...

The global pandemic created a very uncertain landscape for newly-launched small businesses like winebound™, which doesn't qualify for any financial support from the government.

During all three lockdowns, winebound™ has been unable to host any face-to-face events, such as wine experiences at bars & restaurants, and private tastings at our clients' homes, which were at the core of our initial business model.

How has winebound™ navigated through the pandemic?

For the past 4 months, winebound™ has been hosting some really fun and informative virtual tastings, covering a wide range of wine styles, countries and grape varieties. They are a great way to keep our audience engaged and entertained during the lockdowns. But the reality is that the revenue generated from ticket sales is just not enough to keep the business afloat until social distancing is completely lifted and in-person events are resumed.

How can you help?

I'm asking for some financial support to secure the future of winebound. I'm seeking contributions in the value of £10, £25, £35, £50, £75, £100, £125 and £150. Each of these contributions will receive a reward, ranging from a '£10 voucher' to some amazing wines that I have hand-picked myself. And you don't have to wait for them very long, I'll make sure that you receive your rewards as soon as the campaign is closed, or in some cases, even before that.

The Rewards

What does winebound have in store?

Once social distancing restrictions are lifted, we have a full programme of wine events lined up for the summer and autumn months, including our 1st birthday party in September and a pop up Christmas shop in December.

We're also planning to launch our YouTube channel later this year and will continue to host virtual tastings for both private and corporate clients.

In Spring 2022, we'll be launching 'The winebound Show', a one-day wine festival featuring a wide range of wine producers under one roof. So much to look forward to!

Mayor of London's support to Small Businesses

The great thing about this campaign is that if I hit at least half of my target of £1,250, the Mayor of London will match every £ raised, which will then generate a total of £2,500.

I hope you can join me as I secure the future of winebound™ for many years to come!

Thank you in advance and stay well.
