General Details

Strong Wholesale Accounts including Safeway, Whole Foods, and Cost Plus

This business is a successful multiple decade old family-owned winery located in Western Washington on the I-5 corridor. The winery is a locally cherished and nationally recognized producer and distributor of competitively priced, regionally sourced, high quality niche wines including multiple port style dessert wines.

The continued success of the business and year over year revenue growth are attributable to authentic brand recognition, steadily increasing market share, and a highly diversified revenue stream. Retail sales and customer engagement are facilitated by a cozy tasting room known for being a gathering place for the locals. Internet sales have taken a jump during Covid and are anticipated to continue on.
Approximately 85% of the overall annual sales are generated by the company’s wholesale division. The business enjoys stable recurring revenue and long-time standing relationships with industry’s top, multi-location distributors including Safeway, Cost Plus and Whole Foods. The business does no marketing at all to grow and has great upside to expand wholesale sales. Local customer engagement could also be improved with a focus on social media and SEO.
