Team of Wine Industry Experts

At OK Wine Guys we specialize in the acquisition and sale of vineyards and wineries. Our team is unique in that we have detailed wine industry knowledge derived from winery ownership, negotiation skills, specific wine industry valuation software and engage expert resources, such as lawyers, viticulturists, accountants and exit planners to assist in the process of buying and selling.

What differentiate us from any other Realtors is that we have expertise of the wine industry, have a large wine industry specific sphere of influence and we can do a comprehensive and realistic valuation of your winery using special software, assess your real estate and wine business components. Your listing, whether on the MLS or not, will have a value that can be justified by any potential buyer and therefore facilitate a quicker sale of your winery.

Paul Graydon WSET3

As a winery owner for eleven years I have experience in the complexities of liquor board licensing, land zoning and the day to day business management of a winery.

Coming from a marketing background I believe in a bottom up philosophy whereby the value of a single bottle of wine right up to the valuation of a business depends on the market rate for a similar offering.
In that way I can help businesses present an accurate EBITDA and COGS to demonstrate true value alongside inherent value in land, buildings and assets.
