Vintage Point Launches
National Sales, Marketing Teams
September 5, 2006, Sonoma, Calif. - Sonoma-based Vintage Point - "Partners in Wine," the company which offers sales, marketing and general management services to small, luxury wineries, today announced that it has completed hiring a number of veteran sales and marketing managers and held its first national sales and marketing meeting. Formed in March 2006 by two experienced wine industry professionals, David Biggar and Tom Peterson, Vintage Point has closed its initial financing and is entering an exciting new period of growth and development.
"Vintage Point is up and running with sales coverage in all regions of the U.S. and a dynamic new marketing team," commented Managing Director David Biggar. "Our focus on the luxury side of the wine business, be it domestic or international, is proving very attractive to wineries looking for assistance with distribution and greater sales presence throughout the country."
"Because luxury wine distribution is best accomplished by establishing personal and professional relationships throughout the industry, it was very important for us to find individuals who had long-term experience in fine wine and who came to Vintage Point with relationships already in place," commented Tom Peterson, Vintage Point's Director of Operations. "We couldn't be more pleased with the team we have assembled. The depth and breadth of experience, the diversity of channel experience, and each individual's passion for wine will be a tremendous asset as we work with our clients to sustain and grow their businesses."
Vintage Point serves the business needs of its small winery customers through a national sales network designed to help them navigate through the complex and consolidating U.S. distribution system, increase or improve sales, and stand out from competitors. Vintage Point specializes in channel management, employing luxury wine industry veterans that have strong, personal relationships with distributors, master sommeliers, restaurateurs and key retail accounts. The company also offers marketing and general management services to its domestic and import wine clients. The two partners, David Biggar, Managing Director and Tom Peterson, Director of Operations, emphasize that "Partners in Wine" signifies not only their own partnership, but the many partnerships they have formed with the luxury wine trade.
