Since 1995, LearnAboutWine.com has grown to become a trusted source for quality trade and consumer events in Southern California.  The STARS concept was built to be an efficient; quality oriented marketing focus for top quality brands. We use the best locations, invite only wine buyers and key press, and host an intimate consumer event that is oriented towards wine sales.   In 2013 (for our 10th) we will return to Orange County, but 2012 will only focus on  the critical and established LA market.  

We invite relevant press and trade accounts to attend an effective trade tasting, and market and promote a successful consumer event with a charity benefactor (not a charity tasting – but a wine marketing event that benefits a charity).   The events will benefit T.J. Martell Foundation - Leukemia, Cancer and AIDS Research.


STARS FACTS:

    • This is not a charity event that attracts random consumers.

    • This is a quality wine marketing showcase with a charity benefactor.

    • We have worked for 16 years to build relationships with over 40,000 consumers.

    • We invite and discuss our tastings with over 3,000 trade accounts – one at a time.

A limited set of approximately 40 selected vintners will share and benefit from this marketing effort. We invite winery executive, owner, and/or winemaker to be present and encourage you to have your area broker, distributor or representatives in attendance as well.

12 noon - PRESS and VIP SOMMELIER PANEL LUNCH – limited to 4 wineries – we invite a select group of PRESS and VIP ACCOUNTS/Sommelier to enjoy a sit down tasting experience and information session.  THE PRESS PANEL has delivered amazing results for its participants, and press alike – top names in journalism are invited to learn about your wine brand and to meet your brands winemaker or owner.   The additional fee of $300 covers lunch and all the coordination activities.  This is optional but limited to the first 6 respondents. (send an e-mail to ian@learnaboutwine.com for a request to attend to the lunch.)  Each winery will showcase one wine with lunch.

Trade Event from 2:00-5:00pm: LearnAboutWine will produce a highly effective trade event. Invitations will go to the top profiled restaurants, key hand-selling retailers, and invite only press. Our trade/media invite process is highly organized. Our efforts include the use of various media resources; including an extensive list of established contacts and the hard work of staying current with new accounts, buyers, and important cutting-edge points of distribution. A dedicated public relations firm invites only targeted accounts and works to expose this quality event to the world of magazines, TV, radio and blogosphere.

Consumer Event from 7:00-9:30pm: We are thrilled to once again fully produce a high-end, educationally focused consumer event, reaching out with marketing and PR to our 40,000 consumer database. This will be a significant effort and offers the consumers a great value, selling tickets for approximately $100 per person.
