This is one of those investments where if you show up and take a tour of the facility and meet the founders and winemaker, then it's a done deal, so beware. Matt and team have taken a considerable amount of risk off the table. They are doing extraordinarily well financially, and this raise is for growth. It's right in the middle of SoMa. The wine is completely excellent. If nothing else, go have a glass of pinot and allow yourself to fall in love. Bluxome for me represents that rare hobby which has the accompanying virtue of being profitable, and non-linearly so.
Bluxome has an amazing brand and great wine pedigree. One of the top winemakers in CA and the best tasting room expierence gives Bluxome an unfair advantage as a new breed of winery. The first downtown SF winery in 100 years!
