Amid 20,000 attendees including the 4800 brides registered at the Bridal Fashion Debut held January 12th and 13th, 2013 at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona, Vintner’s Circle Scottsdale showcased its wine making packages featuring weddings and related events.
“Attendees were impressed when we told them they could make their own wedding wine with their own personalized wedding wine label,” says Al Pino, VCF Area Developer for Arizona and Scottsdale Vintner’s Circle franchise owner. “It was a big hit. We encouraged the attendees to come and visit our Scottsdale winemaking shop and see the fun for themselves.”
Visitors to the exhibit were exposed to the wide variety of premium wine making kits available at Vintner’s Circle wine making shops. They viewed examples of wine bottles decorated with personalized wedding labels that included the date, photos of the bride and groom, and personalized messages. They also were shown options for bottle sizes, shapes and colors.
“We highlighted the fun and memories that crafting your own wedding wine can create and featured the traditional 750ml bottles as well as the split bottles, which offer a cost-effective, yet equally meaningful, option for wedding, shower and bachelor/bachelorette party favors, as well as rehearsal dinners, or save-the-date announcements,” says Pino.
Vintner’s Circle Scottsdale also raffled off a premium wine making session with custom labels, at a value of $500, and gave away additional Wine and Cheese Events to celebrate wedding wine in Arizona throughout the course of the expo.
“We focused not just on the interesting process of making wine, but on the memories that this experience can create for their big day,” Pino says. “Whether it offers a fun way to bring the bridal party together or a relaxing respite from wedding planning for the bride- and groom-to-be, wine making generates special moments and lasting impressions.”
