The Importance of Promotional Products To A Winery’s Bottom Line

Imagine this – you’re the owner of a Napa Winery just off of the St. Helena Highway. A couple visiting the Napa Valley comes in – they’re from Louisiana and come once a year to the wine country to taste and bring home some wines. They purchase 6 bottles on their way out and your tasting rooms packages the wine in a nondescript cardboard box. You never see the client again.

Now Imagine this – you package 2 of the bottles in a custom wine tote with your winery logo. The other four bottles are packaged in a logo-branded wood wine crate (the wine is an expensive vintage). Back in Louisiana the couple uses the Wine Crate as a decorative piece in their home and the reusable wine tote is used to bring wine to their friend’s homes and back.

Next year, the couple returns to try more wines. They haven’t forgotten the brand, or how much they enjoyed the wine, even though the wine itself has long been drank.

tote bag

Herein lies the value of promotional products. Promotional products are valuable in numerous ways – they give a brand a certain level of professionalism – imagine a tasting room manager wearing a brand-embroidered North Face Vest vs. a regular Nirvana T-Shirt – but even more so than this, they give a brand long-term client recall. Acquiring clients is hard enough. Once they’ve been acquired, the most important factor is keeping the client loyal and engaged to the brand. When client acquisition cost is high, like it is in the varied Wine Country’s across the US, the importance of keeping a client within a Wine Club ecosystem through brand recall becomes especially poignant.

At wine-n-gear we offer Wine AccessoriesApparel, and Promotional Merchandise to fulfill all aspects of Promotional Product brand management. 

Our custom embroidered and silk-screened apparel keeps staff and employees in professional logoed clothing while doubling as a POS item for a gift shop, tasting room, or Wine Club gift Incentive.

Jacket

The same can be said of our varied wine accessories. We offer French CorkscrewsWine GrowlersSpanish Pulltap’sAh So’sand more. These make great POS items, brand promotional items to give to distributors, or wine club gifts.

We source, manufacture, and bespoke-build everything else. Need custom wine totes, wood wine boxes, wine roller bags, or acrylic wine glasses? Done. Need any other merchandise for your gift shop or as a Holiday giveaway, just reach out to us.

At wine-n-gear we’ve been trusted with managing the wine accessory and merchandise brand-image of wineries since 2007. We’ve grown a lot in that time but our focus has always remained the same: offering high-end promotional items at a cost-effective value that will boost a Winery’s bottom line and end ROI.

3 Reasons Coutale Sommelier Wine Keys Are The Industry's Best
31 October, 2018

1. They’re The Original Spring-Loaded Double Lever Corkscrew.

 See the “Patented” metal embossing on the hinge? That’s because Coutale Sommelier French corkscrews, designed by French Vintner Philippe Bernede, are the original patented spring-loaded double lever corkscrew. But what does that mean? Double-hinge corkscrews came to popularity with Pulltap’s and early Coutale Sommelier models. Unlike the prevailing single-lever waiter’s corkscrews of the time, double-hinge corkscrews allowed for two pulls on the corkscrew rather than one. This results in a smoother cork pull and a smaller chance of breaking a cork, especially an old cork. Pulltap’s and early Coutale Sommelier models feature a manual hinge, meaning after the first pull you have to manually push the hinge so that the second pull lines up on the lip of the wine bottle. With Philippe’s spring-loaded mechanism the spring automatically moves the lever back into place, saving the user time and producing a smoother cork opening process.

Coutale Sommelier Prestige Corkscrew

2. They’re Imported From France, and They Look like It

 The French are incredible craftsmen, especially when it comes to wine or wine accessories. Coutale Sommelier corkscrews are expertly crafted and imported from France. On many models we still imprint customer logos in France. Coutale Sommelier corkscrews come in a range of finishes to appeal to all price points. Although all Coutale corkscrews are based on a stainless steel frame we offer full stainless, wood, and ABS plastic finishes in order to market to every price point and brand image. Our plastic model corkscrews can be pad printed in any color while our stainless steel and wood corkscrews are often laser engraved with custom branding. Aesthetically, no corkscrew compares to Coutale Sommelier corkscrews.

Are Champagne Sippers The Most Cost-Effective Wine Industry Promotional Product Of All Time?
25 September, 2018

You might’ve seen a champagne sipper in action before. It looks something like this:

Moet Champagne Sipper

Champagne Sippers, also called toppers or pourers, are a fun, cost-effective way to make a brand statement at any soirée, event, or gala where champagne is served.

Often paired with mini champagne bottles, but available in both mini and regular bottle sizes, champagne sippers can be made in a variety of metallic colors as well as any custom PMS color. At wine-n-gear we include custom PMS matching and double sided logo print standard on all champagne sipper orders.

Here are a couple of wine-n-gear's recent projects below:

wine-n-gear recent sipper projects

Originally designed as a classier way of drinking out of a mini champagne bottle, champagne sippers have made a splash outside of the wine industry and have been featured on red carpets like the Golden Globe awards this past year.

Celebrities using and enjoying champagne sipper

In closing, Champagne Sippers are an extremely effective promotional item for the following reasons:

  1. They are cost effective @$2.95 a unit with wine-n-gear.
  2. They are a unique product and retain the attention of a target audience
  3. They are impossible to buy retail, and thus consumers keep them long-term.
  4. They are a part of an event experience. Not just a hand out.
  5. They are extremely customizable and lightweight for shipping. 

So there you have it. Check out our Champagne Sippers on our wine-n-gear wholesale e-commerce store here.

The 3 Best Custom Branded Promotional Products for Wineries
17 August, 2018

When it comes to selecting promotional products for wineries and tasting rooms it can feel like there’s an infinite number of promotional items to choose from. The benefits of logo customized and brand-personalized items and the impressions they rake in are well-known and oft-repeated. An impression study done by the Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI) found that promotional products remained less expensive per impression than all other forms of traditional advertising.

Further, the study found that “The investment in [promotional products] is modest, more targeted and allows for much greater levels of interaction with consumers than other forms of advertising.” More targeted advertising is important in the context of a winery or tasting room’s marketing or retail budget. Unlike a national ad campaign run by a beer or liquor conglomerate with the intent of reaching millions of consumers, wineries on the whole have a smaller marketing budget and smaller, more targeted audience.

With this context established wineries and tasting rooms should ask themselves three questions before selecting a promotional product:

  1. Will my audience retain and use this product over time?
  2. Does the marketing impression generated by this product re-emphasize my brand and industry?
  3. Does this product reflect the quality of my brand?

A promotional item’s ROI increases exponentially with time and usage and its impression is more meaningful when the item correlates to the brand’s industry. For example, a promotional pen with a winery’s brand on it does not re-emphasize wine or wine drinking. With that said let’s examine the three best Promotional Products for Wineries and the Wine Industry:

#1: The Corkscrew

 Custom Branded Corkscrew

The Corkscrew is a winery’s most important promotional tool. It checks off all three requirements of a wine industry promotional product. An impression generated by a high-end corkscrew re-emphasizes a winery brand on every impression due to its association with the opening of wine and the purchase of more wine. A winery’s target audience will retain a high-end corkscrew for years due to the utility and durability of the tool. The winery’s brand impression will occur at every occurrence of wine being opened over that multi-year period. Two of the best corkscrew brands for price to quality ratio are Coutale Sommelier from France and Pulltap’s from Spain. Both corkscrew brands produce high-end, cost-effective corkscrews available at wholesale pricing with custom logo imprints.

#2: The 750mL “One Bottle” Wine Growler

Custom Branded Wine Growler 

The 750mL Wine Growler is a unique promotional tool for any winery or tasting room. A winery’s target audience is usually willing to purchase a Wine Growler due to its utility and novelty. If used as a free promotional product giveaway or purchase incentive clients are sure to retain a favorable view of the brand as a Wine Growler is considered a high-end, lucrative promotional product. A “One Bottle” Wine Growler fits and keeps chilled one full bottle of Rosé, White, or Red Wine. Like the corkscrew, a custom logoed Wine Growler re-emphasizes a winery’s brand on every use. Plus, customers often like to fill their Wine Growlers with the same wine as the branding on the Growler. Wine Growlers often get re-used as water bottles or coffee thermoses and thus create additional impressions.

#3: The “Ah So” Two-Prong Corkpuller

Custom Branded Corkpuller

The “Ah So” Two-Prong Corkpuller, like the corkscrew and the wine growler, emphasizes a wine brand at the perfect time, when a wine bottle is being opened. Like the corkscrew, the “Ah So” is a product a wine consumer loves and retains over time due to its utility and quality. More so than a corkscrew, an “Ah So” retains an “in the know” cache due its uniqueness and relative rarity of use in comparison to a corkscrew. A wholesale “Ah So” is the perfect promotional item for a winery with a very dedicated audience made up of oenophiles and wine collectors. The “Ah So” Two-Prong Corkpuller is the perfect promotional product for the discerning wine collector who already has the basics, like a corkscrew, at home. Two-Prong “Ah So” Corkpullers with a custom printed logo are available wholesale and in a variety of finishes from wine-n-gear.

" I wanted a luxury branded corkscrew to gift our members at the holidays and was referred to Wine-n-gear through a friend. Wine-n-gear checked all the boxes of great customer experience. The entire process was seamless; from deciding which corkscrew would serve our brand best, to laying out the design, expedite delivery and finally - the quality of the product. Arthur was tremendously helpful and responsive every step of the way. We will be using them in the future and would refer them confidently to any winery looking to have a professional, well made corkscrew that plays to luxury & quality. "
- DD Porush, Westwood Estate Wines
" We have been working with Wine-n-gear for our branded corkscrews for over three years and will continue to do so. Wine-n-gear has gone above and beyond to make sure we are extremely satisfied with the finished product and we couldn’t be more grateful. The entire process from product selection, creation, production and shipping and delivery is quick and efficient. Arthur is great to work with and always accessible. We now work with Wine-n-gear to produce other promotional items other than corkscrews and we love the unique pieces we have been able to create. There is nothing more important than being able to stand out from our competitors and Wine-n-gear helps us achieve this. "
