Also in attendance will be TwentyFour By Charles Woodson Wines, with the brand owner and NFL great attending the event in person.
“The 10th San Francisco Vintners Market Presented By Leese-Fitch is a great place for wineries to discover new customers and sell wine. Wineries using our retail sales partner Square to power their sales at the April 2014 event sold over $250,000 in direct sales the weekend of the event. We expect to exceed those numbers at this upcoming event. Those wineries and the others at the event were able to build their wine club memberships and market directly to upwardly mobile wine consumers,” said event founder Cornelius Geary. “Contemporary brands such as Leese-Fitch are able to gain valuable exposure to a demographic with tremendous spending power for their age.”
