The Amsterdam Wine Investors Club was established to finance the Amsterdam Winery. Before founder Remy Harrewijn could produce his first vintage in 2017, 7 friends raised an initial amount of 55,000 euros. The first steel tanks, wooden barrels and grapes were bought using this amount. Since then, the ambitions of the Amsterdam Winery have grown and the friends decided to open the club to new members. We hope to expand the club to 30 members during 2019, and through doing so, raise a total of 290,000 euros.
The club consists of a group of entrepreneurs and professionals who are familiar with Amsterdam, who live creatively and want to take society to the next level with their talents and energy. Members all have their hearts in the right place, enjoy life, seek inspiration and want to inspire – and we like bringing them together from time to time. This can be with a dinner or a wine trip to Italy, or sometimes in a smaller context when a problem needs to be resolved. Members can naturally use the Winery free of charge.
