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.

Custom Wine Totes

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.
