For many wineries, DtC shipments spiked notably during the second half of March 2020 as wine lovers rushed to stock their pantries with their favorite beverage in an uncertain time of hunkering down at home. The rate of change may have slowed slightly, but what’s ahead remains in flux. We do know that at some point in the coming months, life — and along with it, consumer mindsets and behaviors — will begin to shift toward a new normal. Now is the time to plan for how your winery can remain top of mind and a preferred choice for those clients who found you, perhaps even for the first time, during the upheaval of this Spring. As they ease into life after shelter in place, will that include continued patronage of your winery?
Watch Enolytics, WineDirect and Sovos ShipCompliant for a look at how to engage (and re-engage) new, new-again, and loyal DtC fans alike on their customer journey. Our speakers will discuss:
