iDealwine, a leading player in the online sale of fine and rare wines, was advised by Aurignac Finance in reorganising and reinforcing its capital structure with the contribution of a private equity investor – Capital Croissance.
Established in 2000, iDealwine is a digital platform dedicated to the sale of fine wines throughout the globe, with revenues reaching €33 million in 2020, up by 15% from 2019. A pioneer in the digitalisation of the wine market, the company is the undisputed "Number 1" in France and a worldwide co-leader in its core business of online auctions. In addition to auctions, fixed-price sales represent a growing part of its activity and enable iDealwine to offer a very complete range of fine wines (700 partnering estates) to an international clientele from over 60 countries.
This transaction provides the company with the necessary resources to accelerate its international expansion and develop new innovative and high value-added services (fine spirit auctions, cellar management). iDealwine aims at doubling its revenues within 5 years and becoming the undisputed world leader in online distribution of premium wines and spirits.
