In October 2008, Bacchus Capital provided financing to Cameron Hughes Wine, a wine négociant sourcing super and ultra-premium finished wines worldwide. The wines are bottled under the Cameron Hughes brand, which is sold primarily through large retailers such as Costco. Cameron Hughes was founded on the concept that excellent wine should be available at a value price. The company was listed as the #1 hot small brand of 2010 by Wine Business Monthly, February 2011 issue.
Cameron Hughes repaid its loan to Bacchus in November 2010.
