Jonathan White, Chief Executive Officer, said:

“2023 saw significant financial, operational and strategic progress for Gusbourne resulting in another year of double digit revenue growth. Good performances were achieved across all three of the Group’s distribution channels as we continue to expand our customer base both in the UK and overseas, reinforcing the Gusbourne brand as a leading light in the dynamic and fast growing English fine wine market.

“Trading in 2024 has continued in line with our expectations. Whilst the macro-economic environment remains complex with subdued consumer confidence still causing hesitancy and cautiousness in many markets, consumer interest in Gusbourne and English wine generally continues to grow across the globe, strengthening our confidence in the Group’s future prospects.

“We expect to benefit from increased supply and inventory in the year ahead as our wines produced from mature vineyard holdings have aged in the cellar, and the ongoing expansion of our international presence, with two new markets already opened in 2024. In 2023 we harvested our biggest yield to date with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes showing fine expressiveness and we expect them to produce some outstanding wines, which will be bottled during the summer of 2024, further adding to our inventory levels for sale in future years.

“I was absolutely thrilled to be appointed Chief Executive Officer in January 2024 and am excited to be leading the business at this poignant moment for the industry. I have thoroughly enjoyed my five and half years with Gusbourne and am relishing the prospect of driving this special business forward into the future, implementing our vision and growth strategy.”
