Direct to Consumer
We have worked for small wineries in distribution and have relationships with distributors and accounts. We can find partners and make sure that the wine goes where it needs to go to maximize brand exposure driving sales back to direct to consumer. We focus on distribution as marketing/advertising and utilise consumer demand to pull-through sales and placements.
Our Napa Valley experience and national network of sommeliers can drive qualified visitors to wineries. We can work with you to create wine club/mailing list programs to drive direct-to-consumer sales and enhance customer loyalty and retention. We can also optimize the mailing list to be sure that your best customers are leading the way to driving more sales.
Our extensive history with all levels of wine sales can help to define clear strategies for distribution, retail and direct sales models. We can also plan release schedules, limited release wines and special events to generate excitement around the winery. We can also supervise branding, press relations and website design to present a clear message and an effective e-comerce presence.
As a sommelier and former director of education at Meadowood Napa Valley, we have developed programs for all levels of wine lovers. We can provide engaging education programs on any beverage topic from blind tasting, food pairing and Napa Valley terroir to staff training and mentoring for Court of Master Sommelier exams. We can also work with private chefs to create incredible on-site wine and dining experiences in wine country.
