Adam Dakin

Adam has worked for more than 20 years in the wine industry and brings with him a wealth of experience earned through a rich if unconventional career, having worked as Export Director with wine “négociant” Louis Vialard after several years in wine production working for different Bordeaux, Languedoc and Australian companies.

Since 1999, Adam has specialized in vineyard transactions in Provence, Languedoc and the Rhône valley. WINE Objectives was founded through a desire to offer a larger range of services to its customers and a wish to guarantee a level of service which corresponds to the expectations of a well informed, professional and international clientele.

Adam graduated with Honours in Business Studies and Languages from Strathclyde University, which included a third year of study at the ECSI de Fontainebleau in France. In 1996 he was awarded a post-graduate diploma in viticulture and wine-making at Carcassonne. Adam is perfectly bilingual (French-English).

Through a network developed over the last 20 years working in the Mediterranean wine industry and, thanks to carefully chosen tax experts and accountants, WINE Objectives will guide you through every step of the process which leads to the sale or acquisition of a vineyard or company within the wine industry:

  • Valuation of vineyards and wine industry companies (“négoce”, bottling companies…..).
  • Preparation for company transmission.
  • Fund-raising / financing.
  • Business plan preparation.
