Training Topic #3

Marketing SIP Certified wines in your tasting room is becoming a breeze, right?  Your team is equipped with the tools to tell your story to folks who purposefully walk in the door!

But what are you doing to draw attention to your sustainable wine in retail?

83% of Americans consider sustainability when buying food. More and more consumers are asking their retailers about wineries that are certified, and what sets a brand apart from competitors on the shelf.

So how can SIP Certified help you entice the aimless shopper in the aisles of wine confusion to buy your brand?  Well, you know the barn owl insert that is available for your club shipments? We are now offering an irresistible, attention-grabbing raptor in retail display formats to perch right on top of your floor stacks!

Kevin Sass, Winemaker at Halter Ranch, shares his recent success in the marketplace with these displays.

Using the SIP Certified brand has opened the door for us at Halter Ranch with amazing independent retail partners like “Bottles” in South Carolina. These retailers need something to differentiate themselves from others, and having a SIP Certified display that supports sustainability is right up their alley. Everyone shops in the organic aisle at grocery stores, but neglects to do the same about their wine choice. Why? The two sit side by side at the dinner table. It’s only a matter of time until customers start to apply the same criteria when purchasing their wine.

Not only did the retailer set up SIP Certified case stack displays; they followed it up with this post to their 10,000 subscribers! Here is Bottles Wine Director, Mike van Beyre's take on SIP Certified,

With literally thousands of conventional wines in the marketplace, more and more customers are seeking out wines that are farmed organically and sustainable. Just like the organic section in the produce department, people are drawn to a better tasting and better for you wine while knowing they are supporting a better planet.

Keep marketing the SIP out of it and please send us your success stories!
