80% of the shares are owned by the current Delta Wines management, the other 20% by the company’s founders Pim Nolen and Teun Los. In 2002 the first employees started participating as shareholders, this year (2015) the number of participating employees grew to 16 in total. This makes Delta Wines the first Dutch ‘wine-cooperation’, ensuring that the future of the company’s development is in the hands of those who make the difference.
“After 25 years in the wine business, it has become quite clear to me that investing in wine needs a long-term perspective. Delivering quality takes time and that is why sustainable partnerships with winegrowers/producers, with our employees and with our customers are crucial. That has been the basis of our work from the start and that’s how we choose to keep on working.”
