Some of what we've learned on wine marketing

Last month, Paul Wagner, president of Balzac Communications, delivered  our members a masterful webinar on WINE MARKETING. And you do not have to be a winemaker to enjoy it and learn from it!

As always, the video recording of this past webinar is available for members to replay on-demand.

This webinar focused on “What the US wine market really is, what it really wants…”

It was followed by a second webinar,  this time giving solutions to the marketing problems he presented last month!

For those who’ve missed his first presentation, here is a condensed version:

  • There are 60.000 wines in the US Market
  • In many states there are only 2 or 3 major distributors
