While the amount and timing of an investor’s return will vary depending on their selected fund and the investments within their portfolio, generally speaking VCM investments are meant to be long-term and illiquid in nature. Any potential returns are expected to be paid out in two ways (i) via quarterly distributions and (ii) via appreciation in asset value at the end of the asset’s investment term. While most investors can expect to receive a quarterly distribution, distributions may be more or less frequent depending on an investor’s overall portfolio allocation, market conditions, and other factors. All distributions will be deposited into your primary bank account on file. Note that actual results may be different for each investor and there can be no guarantee of enhanced returns due to investing on Vinito Capital Management or the use of VCM recommendations.

VCM high yield wine funds are a good mix of high return with lower risk. Think of wine as an asset like real estate. Through our extensive network we can source and buy investment grade French wines for 20-30% of wholesale market value.
We have 3rd party escrow agents verify all wines before we buy them. Once bought we ship the wines to Freeport warehouse around the world to freeze any tax consequences.
VCM then packages these wines into investment funds and offers them as alternative investment. We have a large network of wholesale buyers specifically in Russia and China that are always looking to buy investment grade French wines.
A VCM Vineyard High Yield eFund (short for electronic Fund) is a type of online alternative investment available exclusively through Vinito Capital Management. An eFund is a professionally managed, diversified portfolio of commercial vineyard real estate assets, located in USA, France, Italy, Portugal, Georgia and India. Unlike publicly traded residential and commercial real estate, eFunds are structured as partnerships, not corporations, and therefore are not subject to the same double taxation. VCM eFunds are offered directly to investors via the VCM website, without any brokers or selling commissions.
You can earn money through wine sales, vineyard income, as well as potential appreciation in value of the properties and wines themselves. As a shareholder, you are entitled to your pro-rata portion of any income earned and distributed. You may receive periodic distributions as certain underlying wines and vineyards are sold. However, actual results may be different for each investor and there can be no guarantee of enhanced returns due to investing on VCM or the use of VCM recommendations.
VCM investments are intended to be long-term investments and are inherently illiquid in nature. Each vineyard eREIT and wine fund plans to look for opportunities to provide liquidity to its investors after approximately one to five years of operations. While each vineyard and wine fund expects to seek a liquidity transaction in this time frame, there can be no assurance that a suitable transaction will be available or that market conditions for a transaction will be favorable during that time frame.
We also offer quarterly yield payments so investors can have incoming return from their investments if they choose.
