Our Blog


marketing consultantThe wine industry has become more competitive than ever before. Since the competition is fierce, winemakers struggle to differentiate themselves. Simply put, making a good wine is not enough anymore. To build awareness, sell more wine, and succeed, you need to rely on marketing. There are some guidelines that can help you in this regard.

Following are the key wine marketing tips that will help you reach new customers and increase your sales:

Know Your Wine Consumers
You cannot make your wine marketing plan effective if you don’t know your target audience. There are many different types of wine consumers and most of them are overwhelmed by the different choices. And sales are often lost because of a lack of communication as most wine marketers target only wine enthusiasts. That’s why it is important to know your wine consumers. When you know the wants and needs of your niche market, you can create an effective marketing plan.

Establish an Online Presence
Digital marketing is crucial for any business nowadays, and this includes winemakers as well. So, it is highly recommended that you establish an online presence. Establish a regularly flowing site blog, optimize it with powerful keywords, and produce quality content to engage and attract your audience. Consult with a digital marketing consultant to develop a variety of creative content so that your audience is always seeing something fresh. Don’t forget to offer personalized experience by using dynamic ads with different wine offerings.

Embrace Social Media
Use social media to reach wider audiences and increase business for your wine warehouse. Create accounts on multiple social media platforms and make regular posts to keep your target audience engaged. If your content is informative or entertaining, your audience will be inclined to share it with their friends. This will help drive more traffic to your wine business.

Cross-Market with Local Businesses
Partner with local wine shops, wineries, and vineyards to open various cross-promotional opportunities. Get to know these business owners and open the door to discounted prices, private labels, and exclusive wines.

wine warehouseOffer Pop-Up Tastings
Wine tastings are a common wine marketing trend but many people rarely do it properly. For every lost gross profit on bottles opened, there is significant goodwill and business generated in its stead by opening up your collection to consumers. You can charge a nominal fee to prevent freeloaders from turning up and keep the event light-hearted to offer a great overall experience.

Create Special Events

Organize a calendar of weekly or monthly special events at your wine warehouse that could include special pairing dinners or live music designed collaboratively with one of your favorite local bands and chefs. Hire the help of a marketing consultant to creatively hold events that work for your style.

You have probably heard the old saying that wine is an acquired taste. In many ways, the same is the case with wine marketing. If you are feeling overwhelmed by marketing, keep at it. Ultimately, it will become second nature and you will be putting your brand’s name out there.

How The CBD Industry Is Revolutionizing The Beverage Sector

cbd wineWith hemp-derived CBD becoming legal in all fifty states, the CBD industry is thriving now more than ever, and for good reason. With only 0.3 percent of THC or less, CBD does not get you high, and the health benefits are endless. CBD has been used to treat anxiety, seizures, pain, and inflammation. There is also research that shows it can help with other conditions, such as respiratory issues, irritable bowel syndrome, and smoking addictions. Recently, the CBD industry has also been expanding and partnering more into the food and beverage industry. CBD can be found in all kinds of drinks, such as water, tea, coffee, soda, and pretty much any other drink you can think of. Infusing CBD into beverages is revolutionizing the industry and attracting an even wider audience. People are overcoming their hesitation about using CBD as they are more interested in trying CBD-infused drinks and the benefits that could receive from CBD.

CBD-infused beverages provide an easy way to administer CBD, and people consider beverages a healthy way to do so as opposed to inhaling or smoking cannabis, which can harm the lungs and cause further health issues over time. There is also evidence that CBD can reduce the effects of caffeine found in many beverages, allowing consumers to feel awake and alert without feeling “on edge.” These beverages also make it easy to control the dosage of CBD. All CBD-infused beverages have a specific dosage per serving. This makes it easy for consumers to choose a beverage based on the amount of CBD that it contains. This information should always be made readily available, and many companies are doing everything they can to help customers decide what dosage will be best for them. They want this to be a personal choice for every consumer so they can get exactly what they need.

Many of the big beverage companies are getting on board with this trend quickly. In the last five years, beer consumption has gradually been decreasing since people are using CBD more than they are drinking alcohol. To solve this problem, many beer brands have developed CBD-infused beer to reach more consumers. They are investing in cannabis producers and partnering with companies to expand their reach. Constellation Brands, a leader in the alcohol industry, increased their stakes from ten percent to thirty-eight percent in Canopy Growth by introducing CBD-infused drinks. CBD wine is also becoming more popular. Many brands have produced their own CBD-infused wines. One particular winery in California has even started selling a CBD-infused wine that contains no alcohol. CBD wineries are showing up in many places, including California and Ontario, and the number of CBD wine products will likely continue to grow as CBD becomes more popular over time.

cbd ediblesWhile CBD-infused products are becoming more popular, there are certain problems that the industries are facing while partnering together. Cannabinoids are fat-soluble, meaning they do not mix well with water. Because they are fat-soluble, they need to be metabolized in the liver in order for the effects to kick in, which means it takes longer to feel the effects. This is not an effective way of taking CBD for anyone who is looking for fast results. There are companies working to come up with a solution to this problem, but it may not happen any time soon. Many of them use nano-emulsion to infuse CBD because of the small size of the particles. While this solves the problem of figuring out how to mix fat and water, it is not a perfect solution. These nano-particles can build up in organs and cause serious health concerns. However, there will not be a perfect solution unless researchers can figure out how to create CBD that is water-soluble and does not reduce its benefits.

Taste is another problem the industry is facing. Many people do not like full-spectrum CBD because of the taste. While some can handle flavored products, this still is not enough for some. Companies working to create CBD edibles, including beverages, are partnering with research companies to come up with CBD-infused drinks that have a great flavor without losing the effects of the CBD. One aspect that researchers need to focus on more for CBD-infused drinks is the purity of CBD being used. The CBD industry is not regulated, so there are no rules saying what CBD companies should or should not do to sell their products. The industry needs more companies that are transparent in everything dealing with their products, including accurate dosage level, ingredients used, packaging, and proper labeling on products so that customers know what they are buying. In Indiana, for example, companies have to include QR codes on their labels so that customers can see all necessary information, such as CBD and THC levels, ingredients, and any other compounds that are used in a particular product.

cbd wineCBD-infused beverages are likely to be a huge deal in the near future and bring about significant economic growth. It is estimated that this market could grow to almost $4,500 million in the next five years. The CEO of Tilray, one of the largest medical cannabis producers in the world, believes that it will not be too long before the CBD industry consists of mostly CBD beverages. In fact, he estimates that CBD beverage consumption could potentially make up about ninety percent of all CBD use in the future. With all the mental and physical benefits people are learning about CBD, it is no wonder the industry is growing as quickly as it is or that people are looking for new ways of consuming CBD. People are no longer limited to CBD edibles, oil tinctures, and topical products. CBD-infused beverage consumption is growing quickly. With more CBD research coming out all the time, it may eventually become the largest CBD market. Companies are working hard to create CBD drinks for everyone, so they can be enjoyed anytime and anywhere.

The Darker History of Wine

wine jewelryIf you are an individual that pairs a wine with every meal, you may appreciate that there are plenty of options to buy wine jewelry. Sites like Etsy offer wine-themed charms, bracelets, necklaces, and more that can advertise your love for wine. Wine jewelry is also a great gift for wine lovers. If you like the darker side of history, you may also enjoy poison rings and their link to wine. Wearing a poison ring adds a dark twist if you combine the ring with wine jewelry.

Wine’s Direct Link to Poison
Stories make it seem like wine was often poisoned in order to get rid of adversaries. In fact, royals were extremely afraid of being poisoned at meal time. They took special precautions to be safe. For example, royals often had their food and drinks taste tested before eating to ensure that the food was safe. Some courts actually had their servants lick and kiss the silverware and plates that the royals were about to use in order to test for poison.

An article written in 1951 talked about a peculiar method that royals would use to ensure that their food and drink were poison free. It was a strange misconception that unicorn horns could both detect poison and nullify the effects of poison. Unicorn horns were said to react to nearby poison by trembling and/or sweating. Royals believed that dipping unicorn horns into their wine and other drinks would also cure any poison that may be in the drink.

So where did these royals find the unicorn horns? Most people would think of forests or meadows as the ideal habitat for unicorns. However, Europeans were shocked when they kept finding unicorn horns just laying around northern beaches. We now know that these “unicorn horns”, that were said to cure poison, were just narwhal tusks. Narwhals were not discovered until 1684. People also used to mistakenly use the fossilized tooth of a fish to protect them from poison. The fish was called a Lepidote. Just like how the narwhal tusks were called “unicorn horns”, people had mistaken the fossilized fish as a part of a toad.


The fish were used to create rings that were called toad rings. The rings were supposed to heat up when they were near poison. They were also said to cure kidney disease and protect against venom. You may have also noticed that goblets were commonly bejeweled. Most people assume that the drinkware had jewels merely as a show of wealth. The true story isn’t quite as normal. People began to believe that gemstones had unique abilities that could help the holder. Some people still believe in the natural abilities of gemstones and crystals. Gemstones used to be used as a way to dispel poisons that were poured into drink ware. While this doesn’t actually work in real life, it is one of the reasons that jewels were so popular.

Poison Rings and Their Connection to Wine Poisonings

poison ringWhat Are Poison Rings?
Poison rings are rings with secret compartments that were rumored to hold poison. The rings were said to be a discrete way to hide poison. Individuals could potentially release a poison into a drink, like wine, at an opportune time. The use of poison rings to poison royalty was a huge fear in the 16th century when they gained popularity. The term “poison ring” also gained popularity around this time.

The secret compartment of these rings was commonly used to hold small items of importance to the wearer. It may seem morbid to us now that body parts would ever be considered good luck charms. However, carrying around the body parts of a saint was said to bring good luck to the wearer. The small compartments of the rings would often contain the teeth, hair, and bones of saints. Around the Rennaissance time period, these secret compartments were also used to hold things like portraits or hair of loved ones.

Were Poison Rings Ever Actually Used to Hide Poison?
There are not many historically recorded moments where poison rings were actually used to kill someone. It has been historically noted that the Romans used the rings in order to commit suicide before being arrested by their enemies. The idea was to kill themselves before the enemy could torture them and more than likely kill them in a harsher way. Any secret information that the Roman may have had would also have been lost with their death. While poison rings were occasionally used as a last resort suicide method, murders using poison rings were much rarer.

What Are Some Notable Poison Ring Suicides?
A famous suicide victim that used a poison ring to end their life was Hannibal Barca. Hannibal Barca was a noteworthy Carthage general who fought against the Romans in the Second Punic War. He had been victorious at Cannae. However, he never managed to capture Rome. He lost a battle at Zama and had to flee. He sought refuge with Prusias of Bithynia but he was betrayed. Instead of keeping Hannibal safe, Prusias had decided to turn Hannibal over to the Romans. Hannibal decided that dying was better than being arrested by the Romans. He drank poison from a vial hidden underneath a gem in his ring and passed away.Another example of a possible suicide due to a poison ring may have been Demosthenes.

wine jewelryThe circumstances surrounding his death are not entirely clear. It has been noted that he died by ingesting poison hidden in an item. However, historians are not completely certain as to what the item was. Some individuals claim that Demosthenes used a poison ring to kill himself. However, Plutarch wrote in the “Life ofDemosthenes” that Demosthenes died from poison that he hid in a pen reed. Plutarch claimed that Demosthenes asked to write a farewell letter. The story goes that Demosthenes began to write a letter under the close watch of guards. He nibbled on the pen reed while he was writing and the guards thought nothing unusual of this action. It seemed like Demosthenes was merely thinking about what to write next. However, Demosthenes had actually hidden poison in the pen reed, in the case of an emergency. He used poison hidden in the pen reed in order to kill himself. He had decided that death was better than prison.

What Are Some Notable Poison Ring Murders?
This is where things get tricky. There probably were many more murders than were recorded. However, proving a murder using a poison ring was hard during this time. Doctors did not give accurate autopsies. Poison rings were also extremely discrete. You could easily pour a drink and release the poison without anyone noticing. Accusing a noble or royal of murder could also be a punishable offense if there was no proof.

Therefore, there are individuals that we believe may have used poisoning as a means to eliminate their enemies. However, it was extremely hard to prove in the past. Lucrezia Borgia, who became Governor of Spoleto, was said to poison the drinks of her enemies with a poison ring. She is famous for the act but it is unclear as to if she actually committed murder.

Methods to enjoy cannabis

cannabis infused wineCannabis users have become increasingly interested in finding ways to consume cannabis that are convenient, discreet, and work more quickly than vaping. There are now a number of ways to enjoy cannabis more responsibly and without the risks involved with other, old practices of cannabis consumption.

The best method for consuming cannabis is a matter of personal preferences and some individuals use more than one method as a part of their regular cannabis consumption regimen. Following are some of the best methods to enjoy cannabis:


Sublingual consumption of cannabis oil is one of the most widely used methods because it offers the fastest way of absorption. When you use a dropper to consume cannabis sublingually, cannabis oil is absorbed directly into the bloodstream via mucous membranes. Since the oil does not need to pass through the gastrointestinal system, the effects happen within just 15-30 minutes. As a result, higher number of cannabinoids enter the bloodstream.


Cannabis capsules are a portable, discreet, convenient, and safe method to enjoy cannabis. Available at most dispensaries, these capsules are one of the easiest ways to make sure that the product is carefully measured out. Cannabis consumed via this method take about 30-90 minutes to pass through the stomach to the liver depending on your metabolism, what you have eaten, and other factors.

all natural nasal sprayNasal Spray

While there are many methods of using cannabis, through the nose in the form of natural nasal spray is one of the most effective methods to do so. This is because it allows cannabis to absorb into your system in virtually no time. Furthermore, it’s effect is also relatively stronger, which means it is able to last much longer. There are many manufacturers that make cannabis nasal sprays. Nasadol is a popular one. Nasal spray bottles are created in a way that prevents the cannabis from being wasted. Some manufacturers also add flavors e.g. menthol, vanilla, etc. for a better experience.


You can use cannabis oil as a baking ingredient in both sweet and savory recipes. Cooking with cannabis oil requires the use of an oil infused with cannabis e.g. nut oils, vegetable oils, ghee, butter, lard, etc. If one of these fatty ingredients are not needed for a certain recipe, the cannabis concentrate can be diluted in vodka, cognac, rum, or other similar spirit.

cannabis infused wineCannabis-Infused Wine

Cannabis-infused wine is now common in states where cannabis is legalized. The combination of cannabis and alcohol create a more relaxing experience. That’s why cannabis-infused wine is considered one of the best methods to enjoy cannabis. Drinking cannabis-infused wine is like sipping most other drinks. You can either enjoy it solo or pair a bottle of it with some gourmet popcorn or a meal.

As you can see, there are a number of methods to consume cannabis. As mentioned before, the best method depends on your personal preferences and you can always integrate more than one consumption method into your everyday routine.

CBD Oil Wine

The only side-effects you will feel can be generated by the alcohol content of the wine, in case you will have too much of it. Regarding CBD, there are no risks of consuming it in wine, as the amount used is reduced and it has no side-effects on its own.

The manufacturers of such a fine wine promise an outstanding taste, some even promising a peach-like flavor together with a bright color. While some of these wines look regular, having a dark red color, others can look somewhat spectacular, featuring a green, emerald-like hue. So, if you want to try a new variety of wine for dinner, CBD wine could be the alternative you’ve been looking for. Since CBD was discovered and it was noticed its amazing interactions with our bodies, a wide range of products emerged.
