Wine & Spirits Tastings
Flow wine consultants host tastings in indie retail stores and chains, wine bars, restaurants, indoor and outdoor event venues.
Tastings are one of the most critical factors in gaining new converts to a brand. In a recent consumer survey by Nielsen, 75% of wine consumers ranked in-store tastings as the #1 reason for trying new wines.
Tastings are the best investments to promote your wines

You are helping the retailer sell your brand: you are helping yourself get a placement there and a repeat order once you sell your wine
You have an event to market on your Social Network and build a fan base
Consumers taste your wine, you can turn them to your wine
You are helping the distributor by helping the retailer
Flow Wine Group sends a brand ambassador to the venue, often during happy hour

We take pictures of people enjoying
We gather guest feedback
Interested guests order more from their server or bartender
Management confirms sales during the promotion time
Beyond wine, Flow Wine Group consultants showcase cheeses, craft beers and spirits, and other gourmet products that require specialty knowledge. We often showcase cheeses with wines as well, so that consumers get a taste of flavor pairings
