Love wine so much that you thought of having your own winery and wine label? So have others and have done it quite successfully. Learn from both big and small wine entrepreneurs on how they were able to get their business of the ground into a prosperous business. And of course, there will be a tasting!
After attending, you’ll have insights on:
● Where to begin
● Working with distributors to market to the masses
● How to approach restaurants, bars, nightclubs, etc to sell your product
● Sponsorship and PR opportunities to get your brand noticed
