Winemaker Crowdfunding to Develop Champagne Range

CrowdFunding Beat News Wire, NAPA VALLEY, Calif.Dec. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Jean Philippe “JP” Moulin, a renowned winemaker who has created champagne for some of the world’s most heralded labels, is developing his own range of champagnes with €500,000 in crowdfunding raised from wine aficionados on the platform. A celebrated champagne-maker with decades of experience, Moulin is now launching four champagnes available exclusively to his investors on crowd-funding platform


Over the course of his career in France, Moulin has played a central role in developing several prestigious champagne labels in the industry, including Ruinart Champagne that sells for up to $200 a bottle as well as champagnes for the Mumm and Maison Perrier-Jouët brands. Now he is putting his experience to work developing wines in the Champagne region of France under his own name.

Now available exclusively to Angel investors – just in time for the holidays – Moulin offers a vibrant Blanc de Blanc for just $49.99 a bottle, a non-vintage Brut for $29.99, a robust, food-friendly Rosé for $49.99 and a luxurious vintage champagne for only $39.99. These sharply discounted prices are for Angel investors only; Moulin’s champagne range will be offered to the general public at their full list price after 6 months.

“I’ve always dreamed of creating a range under my own name, so this opportunity has been life-changing,” said Moulin. “To repay the Angels who crowdfunded my brand, I’m offering a chance to experience authentic French champagnes that would normally sell for two, three or four times the price available to Angel investors.”

“JP is a legend in the wine world, so it’s a real coup to bring a winemaker of his stature on board,” said Rowan Gormley, founder of “At, you don’t have to be rich to drink great wines, and with the launch of JP’s fantastic new range, you don’t have to empty your bank account to experience the very best bubbly either.”
