We’re taking Cracka Wines to ASIA
We’d like you to join us on that journey
Australia produces some amazing wines.
It’s estimated that the major supermarkets sell 9 out of every 12 bottles made
Many of these are private labels or fake brands invented by the supermarkets
At a time when the supermarkets are generating record profits, Less than 15% of grape growers operate profitably
I started Cracka with the mission to try and help small, medium and family owned wineries by building an alternative route to market
My vision was to create an independent marketplace where wine lovers could:
- Discover great wines simply not available in their local bottle shop
- Save money by avoiding middlemen and supermarkets
- Keep it real buying real wines made by real wineries with real stories
In 2010 we launched with just a handful of wineries
Since then we’ve grown a bit and have presented over 1,000 brands to an audience of over 1,000,000 visitors a year!
From an original staff of 3 people we now employ 40 people
More importantly, we’ve helped many small family owned wineries from going under, protecting hundreds if not thousands of Australian jobs
However, there’s still so much more that we could do
So far, we’ve only helped wineries reach 10 million Australian wine lovers.
However, we believe that our model has even greater potential in other markets, especially ASIA where demand for premium wine is soaring amongst a population of over 4 billion
Traditionally the high costs of wholesaling, distribution agents and logistics make it prohibitive for small and medium sized wineries to enter other regions
Our model removes those barriers and goes one step further by providing them access to a powerful sales channel

to help spread our wings, taking advantage of new crowd-sourced funding (CSF) legislation that will allow everyday Australians to invest up to $10,000 in start-ups like Cracka
The new legislation is schedule to commence on 29 September 2017. Cracka hopes to be among the first companies in Australia to raise funding in this way
So how can you participate?
Cracka intends to make a CSF offer in accordance with the legislation, and will release a CSF offer document later in the year. Before deciding whether to make an application to participate in the CSF offer, you should review and consider the CSF offer document carefully (including the general risk warning that will be set out in the CSF offer document).
If you would like to receive updates in relation to Cracka’s proposed CSF offer, you’ll need to be an Active Cracka Customer who’s made at least one purchase in the 3-month period leading up to 30 September 2017.
