Capabilties

Sourcing: Only the best will do.

A great looking label and memorable name gets people to buy. But the wine inside must deliver. That’s why we work with only the best producers in the area. We are California-centric, sourcing primarily from the Napa Valley - where we are proud to call home. But depending on what you want to create, we also source from California’s other premier viticultural areas like Sonoma County & Paso Robles.

  • GRAPES: Access to almost every primary varietal in California
    • Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir Merlot, Petite Verdot, Malbec, Syrah
    • Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Muscat Canelli, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sémillon, Viognier
  • NATURAL: All our growers practice sustainable viticultural and winemaking methods. Organics are available upon request
  • SHINERS: All our wines are available in shiner format to help you fill out your own programs
  • BULK: We can source additional wine for your project upon request

Creative: The package is the product.

  • In the wine industry that is especially true. The label on the outside of the bottle must represent or exceed the wine within. To the customer who has yet to sip your wine, the decision to buy happens first through the eyes. From the name, to the choice of fonts, to the colors used, and the feel of the paper, it all must be thoughtfully considered and catered around your goals
  • NAMING: #1 A ‘brand’ name is its identify and differentiator. It is an integral part of the communications, marketing and brand strategy
  • BRAND STORY: ‘branding’ is the single most important part of a brand. It is how a wine brand gets recognition and intimately connects to the consumers
  • IMAGE & IDENTITY: A strong wine brand name / logo keeps your wine in the mind of your customers or potential customers. It builds customer loyalty and its growth potential
  • LABEL DESIGN: As important as Name, Story, Identity but possibly the most important. It is the visual marketing that connects with the emotional side of your wine brand

Production.

  • BLENDING: Our goal is to nail the perfect wine, with the right winemaker
  • BOTTLING: State of the art, capable of 1500 cases per day
  • PRINTING: We work with over a dozen wine label printing companies across the US to acquire the best possible price, the finest quality in the shortest time frame
  • CLOSURE: Cork (Natural, composite, alternative), Capsule, the choice is yours
  • BOX: We can print the box, or not, we can package in wood, or not

Sales Enablement.

  • WEB: We can do it, we really can but less is more, deep content heavy sites are from yesteryear
  • POS: Print, eCommerce, Brochures, Cards, ‘the whole kit and caboodle’
  • PHOTOGRAPHY: We do it ourselves or out source to industry experts / cost effective or expensive
