Voli light vodkas are available in original lyte, lemon, orange vanilla, pear vanilla, raspberry cocoa and espresso vanilla flavors, all of which were created by master distiller George Roullet in France. “We at Voli light vodkas are thrilled about the opportunity to partner with the Palm Bay International Spirits team.

The Original Small Batch Bourbon

Basil Hayden’s The recipe for Basil Hayden’s dates all the way back to 1796, right when the brand new United States of America was finding its groove. When Basil Hayden, Sr. first started experimenting with his super-premium small-batch bourbon in Maryland, he solely used rye. Once he got to Kentucky, he took notice of the corn that grows in abundance there and began to incorporate it into the recipe, resulting in a unique bourbon that is a distinct part of The Small Batch Bourbon Collection that also includes well-known Booker’s and Knob Creek. Basil Hayden’s embraces the traditions of both rye and corn with a mash that contains twice the rye of most other bourbons. The spicy rye marries with the sweet, oaky corn for smooth and sophisticated results. Basil Hayden’s spends eight years in new charred American white oak barrels before being both charcoal and then chill-filtered, lending itself to a light body with notes of honey, spice and pepper that makes it approachable for men and women alike. The mild proof and luxurious mouthfeel make Basil Hayden's perfect for classics like Manhattans and Old Fashioneds, as well as todays creations – or for sipping.

NbWa’s 73rd annual Convention Draws Record Numbers Over 1,000 Distributors in attendance by CaRa McIlWaINe

T

he National Beer Wholesalers Association held its 73rd annual convention in Chicago from October 3rd-6th. This year’s event featured over 1,800 attendees—200 more than in 2008, NBWA’s last non-trade show year. Distributor presence also increased 20% over 2008: with 1,100 distributor members present, the Product Demonstration Showcase also made a return appearance after a successful debut at the 2008 convention.

What Does The Consumer Want? NBWA president Craig Purser says one of the most meaningful panel discussions was the “What Does the Consumer Want?” panel moderated by Nick Lake of The Nielsen Company, including Garrett Oliver of The Brooklyn Brewery, Alex Joerger of Best Cellars Inc./A&P, Greg Engert of Neighborhood Restaurant Group and Rick Steckler of Click Wholesale Distributing. These panelists discussed how the recent economic downturn and growth of the power retailer are changing the way consumers shop for beer. The panel also touched on current on- and off-premise trends, and how consumers are demanding more variety.

Commenting on growth in the craft beer segment, Purser says, “Despite 10% unemployment, the craft beer segment is showing slow and steady growth. There is tremendous consumer interest in exploring the exciting and innovative styles and flavors that craft brewers bring to the market.” Attendees also had other opportunities to learn at educational seminars offered throughout the week, including “Hiring 101: Why Talent Will Change Your Business” and “Proactivity: The Way to the Female Beer Buyer.”

The NbWa Faces Industry Issues At the Distributor Member Meeting, attendees had the opportunity to speak freely about current issues affecting the beer industry, including the Washington

State ballot initiatives 1100 and 1105 that sought to deregulate alcohol in that state, and NBWA’s stance on HR 5034, also known as The CARE Act. Regarding privatization, Purser comments, “Today’s system works effectively to balance competition with the public’s interest.” The issue was further addressed in the panel, “The Great Masquerade: Alcohol Deregulation Disguised as Privatization,” which offered varying perspectives on the issue that is still making post-election headlines. Led by Purser, The NBWA strongly endorses The CARE Act. In an effort to clarify the association’s position, Purser outlined a few reasons that The Care Act is needed: the goal of the bill is to assist in maintaining an effective regulatory system for alcohol; since 2005, economic interests have challenged more than half the states in federal courts over their alcohol laws; and the act reaffirms that states are primarily responsible for regulating alcohol. For more information regarding the CARE Act, visit http://nbwa.org/node/2472. ■ 1. Craig Purser, NBWA president 2. Larry Del Papa, NBWA chair 3.

PRODUCTS OF CONCERN Use Caution When Stocking Up BY PHILIP A. CRAIG

N

ew and existing products containing a caffeine and alcohol mixture are of growing concern. A recent media teleconference on November 17, 2010 involving FDA and FTC representatives confirmed that they have sent warning letters to the New Century Brewing Co. regarding Moonshot; Charge Beverage Corporation regarding Core High Gravity, Core Spiked and El Jefe; United Brands regarding Joose and Max; and Phusion Products LLC regarding Four Loko and Four Maxed. The alcohol beverage manufacturers received the warning letter because the listed products contain caffeine directly added as a separate ingredient. The warning letters contained footnotes with reference to studies which led the FDA and FTC to conclude that the products do not meet the legal standard for consumer health and safety and, therefore, are not generally recognized as safe (GRAS). Other alcoholic beverages containing added caffeine may be subject to agency action in the future if the available scientific data and information indicate that the use of caffeine in those products is not GRAS. The manufacturers were given 15 days to respond in writing to the FDA and FTC addressing specific steps they have taken to correct the violation and prevent similar violations from occurring in the future. If there is not a satisfactory resolution, then the federal agencies may go to court to enforce the findings set forth in the warning letters. This will be done through an injunction to prohibit the distribution and sale of the product and court authorization to seize the

products. During the teleconference, the TTB representative explained that the TTB is responsible for the promulgation and enforcement of regulations with respect to the labeling of distilled spirits, wines, and malt beverages pursuant to the FAA Act. Because caffeine is not an approved food additive for use in alcohol beverage products, all products listed in the warning letters are adulterated. The TTB, therefore, will consider the products “mislabeled” and not approved for distribution or sale.

response period expired, the FDA official stated they would “go from there.” For permit holders, this information is very unsettling. Obviously, permit holders don’t want to invest in a product that they might be stuck with! The OLBA will continue to monitor these developments and inform you accordingly.

The Ohio Division of Liquor Control sent a letter to all retailers requesting them to immediately cease the sale of such beverages and the Federal Government has respectfully requested that wholesaler and retailers cease with the sale and distribution of these products. The FDA and FTC representatives made clear that the manufacturers were given 15 days to respond to the warning letters. After the 15 day

all liquor permit premises are subject to inspection by law enforcement officers. all permit holders must fully cooperate with a lawful inspection conducted by law enforcement officers. The department of Public

dave raber, OLBa Legal Co-Counsel

safety employs liquor agents to make certain the daily operations of a liquor permit holder’s business are in compliance with Ohio’s regulatory scheme. Liquor agents usually inspect permit premises on a complaint-based system which means complaints received by the agency will be investigated. The Liquor Control act prohibits any person from hindering or obstructing “any officer of the law” from making inspection or search of a permit premises. inspections may be conducted by compliance officers from the division of Liquor Control and Liquor (enforcement) agents from the Ohio department of Public safety and peace officers. Upon presentation of credentials, the law enforcement officer must be immediately permitted on the permit premises “for any lawful purpose.” The hindering statute prohibits any person from hindering or obstructing to allow any peace officer “from making inspection or search of any place, other than a bona fide private residence, where beer or intoxicating liquor

10 OhiO Beverage MONThLY January 2011

is possessed, kept, sold, or given away.” a Liquor Commission regulation commands in pertinent part: “immediately admit such compliance officer or enforcement agent to the permit premises for any lawful purpose.” generally, if the permit premises is open for business, then liquor agents or police officers may lawfully enter your permit business and conduct a warrantless inspection to determine if the operation is in compliance with Ohio law. as quoted in the two laws above, as a permit holder, you have an affirmative duty to cooperate with the inspection. it is unquestionable that the Liquor Commissioners take great interest in knowing whether a permit holder was cooperative with the investigating agent. Many agents will inform the Commissioners if a permit holder was cooperative and include that information in the investigative report. however, every agent will let the Commissioners know if a permit holder or his employees were uncooperative. even if the premises is not cited for hindering, the Commissioners may ask if the permit holder cooperated with the investigation. it is hard to imagine more damaging testimony than where a permit holder or her employee interfered or allowed others to interfere with a lawful investigation. The Commissioners routinely reminded permit holders to cooperate with liquor agents and compliance officers, at all times, so they can do their jobs. it is certain that a permit holder that does not heed the Commission’s admonishment places his liquor permit in jeopardy. The liquor agents have a job to do and the Liquor Control Commission demands that permit holders allow the agents to do their jobs. a permit holder that does not cooperate with an agent's lawful commands or allows others on his permit premises to hinder agents is in jeopardy of having his liquor permit revoked.

SOCIAL MEDIA FOR BARS

Why Social Media For Bars Is No longer An Option. It’s a Must

I

By Barry CHandler t’s difficult to turn on the TV, listen to the radio or read a newspaper without seeing more and more references to and mentions of social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, Yelp and others. What started in many of these cases as small college projects, these sites

have quickly grown to become the cornerstones of a new revolution. A new way that we communicate with friends and family but more importantly for bars, a new way to attract, engage and keep loyal customers. Over the coming months, I hope to share with you the specific uses these networks have for Bars, share examples of how other bars are leveraging them to increase sales and keep you up to date on the latest ways that you can take advantage of these amazing new channels to grow your bar business. I won’t go into too much detail as to what each site is as I believe this information is freely available in many places online, but to give you a brief overview, Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare & Yelp are the four most important social networks for bars. I’ve heard many bar owners say that they “don’t get” Twitter, don’t have time

12 Ohio Beverage MONTHLY January 2011

for Facebook and don’t have a clue what Foursquare is. The reality today is that deciding whether to get involved with social media or not is no longer an option. The question is “How WELL do you do it?”

A new way that we communicate with friends and family but more importantly for bars, a new way to attract, engage and keep loyal customers. Why? Because your customers get it, your customers use these sites to communicate more then they would with email or text messaging, they take note of reviews their peers leave about bars and restaurants and make their purchasing decisions based on peer recommendations 78% of the time. They take to the web to complain about bad service, shout about great service and perform extensive social research before committing to a product or brand. So how can you get started and how do you start to reap the rewards of participating on these networks? Well, the first thing that you have to understand is that these platforms are not advertising platforms; they’re not a new outlet for you to paste your happy hour prices 20 times a day. These new tools are “engagement channels” where you talk and engage WITH your customers rather than AT them. What this does is that it allows you to continue the conversation after a customer leaves the bar or even before they ever get there!

Your customers don’t use these networks to be advertised to. They use them for the community aspect, for the recommendations and for socializing. Once you remember that this is the reason these networks have become so popular and useful, then your messages and interactions will reflect this. The basic requirements for your bar to begin with are: • A Twitter.com account for your bar • A Facebook.com Fan Page • A Foursquare.com account Many of my clients use these platforms to share photos of their promotions with their followers, ask their friends to help name menu items, invite them to the tapping of a new keg, create special offers only available to their social media friends, listen to what is being said about their bar online, handle customer service queries and many more great ways that improve customer retention, allowing customers to share your info and expand your reach and reduce the expensive reliance on unmeasurable traditional media. Over the next few issues, I’ll go through the uses of each of these networks in detail and give you actionable ideas to take advantage of the social media revolution we’re all now part of.

them. This is a fun and important topic! Many operators get very passionate about what promotions to do and what works. how effective they are is determined by many factors. Not only is it critical to promote your bar, it’s important to measure your efforts. You need to assess if the money and time you invested in your promotions increased your sales and exposure of your business. Just like knowing what your cost percentages are with your inventory and sales, you need to know and understand what your advertising and promotion expenses are to your sales. at a minimum, you want the promotion to be successful enough to pay for the promotion and any other additional expenses the promotion caused, along with at least a little extra for the effort you provided. in the long run, by bringing additional people into the bar, you are increasing the exposure of your bar and the hope is that they will come back again without the need for additional advertising; which increases your payback on the advertising expense. There are several ways to promote to your customers. There is advertising designed to bring in more business and there are promotions to increase your business once the customers are at your business. To measure your efforts for advertising designed to bring in additional guests, you want to be able to know your sales history for the time before you started an external marketing effort to get more people into your place. it’s also a generally good idea to know your product mix between the different types of products you sell and the general range on your cost percentages. even though they do fluctuate as we have discussed in previous columns, it’s still good to know the ranges. Your new promotion might increase your costs if its price oriented and you want to know that’s what the cause might be for your costs increasing. You should also know your basic head count as well. By establishing these baselines you will be in a better position to effectively

measure the change to your business with the new marketing efforts. different types of advertising and promotions are more effective with different types of bars. This is where you have to know your business and what is likely to work with the type of customer your establishment is likely to draw.

aT a MiNiMUM, YOU waNT The PrOMOTiON TO Be sUCCessFUL eNOUgh TO PaY FOr The PrOMOTiON aNd aNY OTher addiTiONaL eXPeNses The PrOMOTiON CaUsed an example of an in-house promotion once the customers are in your business is up-selling. Or it could be promoting a particular brand. (This effort could also be part of an external marketing campaign) For example, you might be promoting up-selling your customers to a particular vodka or up-selling in general. depending on the up-selling campaign you can either compare your menu item sales for that particular brand to previous times before the promotion or if it’s a general up-selling strategy across the board you can measure the change in your Net Profit per Ounce of product sold. This can be a particularly complicated formula in which a software program would be needed to be used. if you Net Profit Per Ounce is increasing that means the staff is following through and their efforts of up-selling are paying off. i have heard many operators believe it’s better to sell products with a better/ lower margin. But in reality that is only the better situation if the alternative would result in selling less drinks. it’s almost always better to up sell to a higher costing premium brand. Just look at the numbers. selling a 1.25 ounce of well vodka provides a cost percentage of 7.4%. The cost of the portion is 26 cents and the selling price is $3.50. The same size shot of grey goose costs $1.27 and sells for

Chuck deibel

$6.00, thus yielding a higher percentage of 21.2%, but also a much higher Net Profit margin of $4.73 vs. the $3.24 for the shot of well vodka. if the bar can sell basically the same number of grey goose shots as the shots of well vodka, the bar will make more money. The bars cost percentages will increase, but so will the amount of money that’s deposited in the bank! You pay your bills with more money, not necessarily a lower percentage with your costs. Thanks for taking time to spend with us and we will see you next month when we provide some specific sure fire ways to promote your bar.

Politically Speaking Brent kroll, sommelier, the oval room, washington, D.C. By alia akkam

He may be young, but Brent Kroll, of The Oval Room, a favorite among the politician set, knows his way around a restaurant. He mastered the art of customer service waiting tables for Michael Mina, and he’s been putting together wine lists for years. He’s also humble: Even though he challenges his guests to order beyond their comfort zone, he confesses that every night he “meets someone new in the dining room who can teach me something about wine I didn’t know before.” the Beverage Network: It’s winter in D.C. What are your guests drinking? BreNt kroll: People just can’t get enough of Pinot Noir. There’s a real sense of place behind the grape —whether from Burgundy or the Willamette Valley—and guests are noticing that. We’ve got some interesting Pinots, too: a white one from the Rheingau (Robert Weil, Spatburgunder), a dessert one from Adelsheim Vineyard in Oregon. tBN: You are known for keeping your guests engaged by serving unusual wines. What do you currently have on the list that you’re excited about? Bk: A Greek Chardonnay, the ‘Almira,’ (Skouras from Peloponnese) and

the wines; if the whole staff isn’t, it’s not going to be successful. tBN: How does that get accomplished?

tBN: Do cocktails have the same clout at The Oval Room? Bk: We’re definitely more of a wine destination, but we take the same pride in our cocktail list with fresh citrus juices and made-to-order crushed ice for each Hemingway Daiquri. tBN: The main draw of The Oval Room, of course, is Chef Tony Conte’s food. Do the two of you work together to make sure there is fluidity between the two realms? Bk: Yes, the way to wow people is really through contrast pairings. When you get into more aggressive pairings, the food pops and plays off wine. It’s also a great way for guests to try unique wines they normally don’t. tBN: How do you convince guests to branch out and experience new wines? Is it about hand selling? Bk: The pairing and tasting menu is a good place to start because they know the selections will be worth their weight. Guests like to know they are drinking something exclusive. But most importantly, you have to get the staff behind

Bk: We have to establish trust. The first thing we ask a guest is what kind of wine they enjoy. Once they tell us what they normally drink, the wheels start turning and we’re able to recommend wines from different countries and price points with similar qualities. You have to understand why they like a certain wine. If they say they typically drink California Chardonnay, then you have to really know the grape—its body, its acidity—and how it breaks down on the palate. tBN: What do you expect to see more of in the new year? Bk: We’ve already seen Grüner Veltliner and Sauvignon Blanc become huge, but now it’s Greek wine. The category has been intimidating in the past, probably because of the unfamiliar grape names. Now we’re just discovering its aging potential. You can pull a bottle out 10 or 20 years later, and we didn’t know that before. But I’m also rooting for Cabernet Franc—there are great examples from New York and the Loire Valley. I’m really enjoying a Super Tuscan made with this grape.

I have also tried movie rentals and a Deli. You never know what will work, so keep trying new and different options. Some of them will work and some will not. You’ll never know till your try. In the future, I want to get into consulting other liquor business owners in helping them grow their business. Having owned other liquor stores in different areas, I feel that I have come up with a strong business model that is successful wherever the location will be.

social media

As the Digital Age cranks up, wine & spirit industry players aim to keep pace. The operative question has become not whether to use social media, but how. By W. R. Tish


L

ike so many adages that survive from generation to generation, “The more things change, the more they stay the same” is built on truth. The sun still rises in the east. Wine is still fermented grape juice and people like to drink it. Yet, when it comes to media, even if some stay-the-same things are not truly changing, they sure seem to be evolving faster than a bottling line. In short, media will always be based on the sharing of information, but fundamental shifts in how people give and get information about wine and spirits are too profound to ignore. After spending several weeks discussing the sprawling if nascent beast that is social media with members of both the wine/spirits trade and various media, here are some thumbnails that may help get a handle on how SM might be put to work for your business.

A LITTLE DEFINITION, PLEASE? Social media as a concept means more than one thing. If forced to capture it in one sentence, I would say it is the tools and channels by which people publish, share and discuss content online. The tools include blogs, wikis, podcasts and sites to share photos, text and links to websites. Twitter and Facebook are considered the SM frontrunners in terms of scope and activity; however, SM reaches further still. Blogs are key; while they represent individual viewpoints, blog posts are quickly and easily cross-pollinated. YouTube counts as SM, as it is a platform by which videos are posted and shared. Ditto Eventbrite—the ticketing service which also enables sharing. Social communities devoted specifically to wine—namely Cork’d, Snooth and CellarTracker— are also very much part of the social landscape, with an emphasis on peerto-peer communication.

Wines of Chile USA’s new SM campaign is all about Twitter

PREPARE TO JOIN THE “CONVERSATION” Unique to SM, as compared with previous technology-fueled leaps, is that the delivery of a company’s message is no longer a oneway street. Advertising, PR, POS materials—all are tried and true, but all are “push” methods. Marketing social media is richer and more complicated, as messages are delivered in channels that allow and encourage feedback. At the U.S. Drinks Conference 2010 in October, Wine Library’s Gary Vaynerchuk (now better known as a social media guru than as a wine merchant) told a rapt audience: “Businesses are now allowed into the conversation. This is the biggest shift ever.” Future success, he said, will come to those who focus on customer relationships. “Consumers care about their online world,” said Vaynerchuk. “When you get involved in that world with your brand, you are ahead.”

KNOW YOUR MARKET One of the pitfalls of approaching social media too generally is to lose sight of how certain types of businesses need to use SM differently. While SM is global in its scope, a vast majority of wine shops and restaurants are keyed to local clientele. Blue

Streak Wines, a small shop in Long Island City, New York, that opened in 2007, has managed to grow its business 50% annually during the Recession in part by gearing its online efforts to a frequently updated website and timely, judicious email blasts to its locally focused list. “We try to remind people that there is always something new going on in the store,” says Rob Bralow, events & promotions manager. By contrast, specialty shops and large stores that ship a good deal of wine should look to SM channels such as Twitter and Facebook to reach out for new customers. Suppliers (importers, wineries, national markeing agencies) will naturally take a broad-market approach, aiming to reinforce and create relationships wherever their products are sold. Even distributors can and should embrace social media. The Charmer Sunbelt Group in the NYC metro area has taken a progressive twopronged tack, according to Efren Puente, vice president, marketing. CSG’s Empire Merchants division has hosted two intensive symposia for retail accounts. CSG has also developed market-specific Facebook pages that provide a forum for the sharing of product information and local market promotions with consumers.


social media Wines of Rioja integrated a variety of SM elements into promoting Rioja Restaurant Week

LEVELING THE PLAYING FIELD Social media’s combination of low cost and flexible reach has proven to be a real boon for the wine and spirits industry’s smaller players. This development bears relevance for individual suppliers and brands, to be sure, but perhaps even more so for wine regions where coordinated efforts can have an even greater effect because both the supplier base and consumer interest are broader. Consider, for instance, Croatia. “Facebook and Twitter are fabulous tools for start-ups and underdogs to create a presence,” says Cliff Rames, who founded Wines of Croatia as a nonprofit in October 2009. “The best part is that these sites are free and just require you to be smart, creative and persistent.” Rames compares Facebook to “a nicely developed business brochure,” meaning it allows richer content, whereas Twitter is “a roadside billboard.” Tapping both, he has been able to draw more attention to the core of the business, the Wines of Croatia blog. The blog attracted nearly 15,000 views in its first six months; it also helped Rames develop enough industry support to merit the creation of a trade tasting in New York one year after launch, and has set the stage for a wine-tourism side business in 2011. Wines of Chile USA (3,652 Facebook fans, 8,663 Twitter followers as of October 2010) has used SM “to bring the full Chilean experience to life, not just wines,” says executive director Lori Tieszen. SM efforts embraced the Chilean miners’ rescue (Americans literally tweeted toasts with Chilean wine) and the February 2010 earthquake ($130,000 was raised for charity partner Levantando Chile). The group also conducted a series of themed tastings linking 50 bloggers and winemakers, moderated by Fred Dexheimer, MS, resulting in 32 blog posts and 275,000+ impressions.

Blogger outreach has also been a focus for the Austrian Wine Marketing Board, which has teamed up with Connecticutbased Brand Action Team for its social media agenda. “For Austrian wine, our ultimate focus is on Millennials. We work with a variety of social media platforms that are all integrated—our aim is to bring the content to where the consumers are, rather than asking consumers to come to us, i.e., our website,” says Constance Chamberlain, public relations manager at Brand Action. She notes that over the course of 2010 the number of articles per month at least tripled over 2009. Team Austria expects heightened exposure to continue in 2011, thanks in part to AWMB having hosted the European Wine Bloggers Conference in Vienna in October.

ZERO TO 60 VIA SM Applying both digital-based and traditional marketing efforts in a coordinated effort also has demonstrated huge potential for individual brands. Aperol, the best-selling spirit brand in Italy, is primed for major growth in the U.S. this year via a multichannel plan coordinated by Palm Bay International Spirits with help from London-based creative agency Archibald, Ingall, Stretton. According to Palm Bay senior director of marketing, Stephanie Kubacki, through March 1st, Aperol’s “Start a Better Party” campaign is going to combine the power of Facebook, Twit-

ter, Foursquare and YouTube with strong online advertising and both on and off-premise elements. “We are asking people to submit videos of their best party moment, which can be funny, inspiring or amazing,” says Kubacki. Consumers can enter at facebook.com/aperolusa or startabetterparty. com. The grand prize is a long-weekend, all-expenses paid party in Milan for eight people during Design Week. There will be a voting mechanism and ranking scoreboard for entries, so these will be passed on as entrants look to their friends and contacts to vote for them. Of course, not every major import portfolio is investing extensively in every single brand. But many are taking deliberate steps. For example, Pasternak Imports has set up a Facebook page that covers its range of brands, and is testing Twitter support for the Argentine label Trumpeter, enlisting the aid of an outside agency to do the actual tweeting.

NEW FRONTIER? GOING MOBILE. Just when you think you have a handle on the SM thing, technology has a way of opening new channels of engagement. The next major shift, according to many experts, will be driven by smart phones. Pia Mara Finkell, associate vice president at CRT/Tanaka specializing in social media and communications for the Vibrant Rioja campaign, notes: “With 82.8 million people expected to be using in 2011, mobile digital marketing is very much on our

radar and we are currently developing a mobile app for use in various parts of the Vibrant Rioja campaign. We’ve also participated in fun social media wine events, such as the City Winery and Wired magazine Spit ’n’ Twit event, and are integrating Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare elements into our annual Rioja Restaurant Week (May 13th-27th).”

BRAVE NEW OPTIONS Smart phones did not exist 10 years ago, so perhaps it can be argued that some aspects of social media are truly novel. Some other opportunities that are essentially uncharted territory:

Locater Apps

Groupons

It almost sounds crazy to think that a click of a button or snapshot from a phone could help consumers zero in on any wine in their immediate area, but that is where technology is heading. From the supplier side, Grappos.com is apparently the leader. From a retailer standpoint, Hub. Snooth.com enables individual stores to upload dynamic inventory data that in

This Digital Age wrinkle is based on the old-fashioned notion that everyone loves a deal. Groupons.com, with 15 million subscribers in the U.S., specializes in 24hour deep discount offers (one per day, 5090% off) at specific businesses in markets across the nation. Think of it as “loss leader” offers via the Web; it’s not designed to make the merchant profit so much as it is to drive fresh traffic. Discounts involving alcohol can be problematic based on state laws, but the potential is clear. Last October, for example, a “$40 worth of wine, beer, spirits and gourmet items for $20” offer by Schaefer’s in Skokie, IL, was snapped up by 2,997 Groupon groupies in 24 hours.

Digital Dos & Don’ts

Communal Days A calendar day devoted to a specific wine is nothing new to those who peddle Beaujolais Nouveau, but social media has made cyber-celebrations a fertile new arena for group wine love. Among the wines getting special 24-hour treatment in 2010: Grenache, Champagne, Chardonnay, Cabernet and Zinfandel. Spearheaded by consultant Rick Bakas during his stint as in-house SM guru at St. Supéry in Napa, the most successful to date has been Cabernet Day, which featured 700 registered participants, 75 meetups in six countries, nearly 9,000 tweets and 4,000+ Facebook posts. Designed to be generic, such days nonetheless offer opportunities for members of the wine trade at all levels to draw attention to their offerings within the designated wine focus. Looking ahead, the Thursday before Memorial Day is slated as the next Chardonnay Day, and the Thursday before Labor Day will be the next Cabernet Day.

Tweetups More focused than communal days, tweetups are basically tastings where participants are encouraged to post their impressions of brand- or region-specific wines live on Twitter. The idea is to create digital ripples that start with but extend beyond the actual tasters. Last year, [Yellow Tail] teamed up with WineTwits.com to stage a multi-city tweetup based on a

Big or small, wine and spirits businesses need to think of social media as a means of transmitting their particular identity and strengths. In other words, try to expose who you are and what you do well to new customers. Some important caveats in the process: Don’t over-sell. “Companies just can’t show up and start pushing propaganda and/or widgets,” advises Melissa Sutherland, brand strategist at The Spoonful consulting firm. Be authentic. In short, consumers who look to the Internet for information are keen BS detectors. Engage. SM is no place for sporadic use. Look to monitor and utilize your SM channels of choice consistently, frequently and responsively. Show your stripes. If you’re in the game, tell people. Facebook, Twitter and other web coordinates should be treated as being as important as your phone number and address. Display them clearly in printed collateral and online communication, including business cards, ads, in-store signage, emails and especially your website home page. Be patient. SM is built on relationships. Just like relationships in real life, don’t expect to measure success or failure quickly.

JUST RELAX AND RELATE Personally, I don’t get Foursquare, the app that lets people “check in” using the GPS function of their smartphones. The app builds in gaming challenges that connect users to businesses—especially restaurants and bars—that essentially create rewards for patronizing businesses and sharing their experiences. With social media being about as nebulous a practice as one can find in the business world, it is no surprise that it confuses many people. Paige Granback, manager of e-commerce and marketing at JJ Buckley, based in Oakland, CA, would tell anyone who is SM-shy that this seemingly scary stuff is really all about relationships. “I’ve used Twitter and Facebook for both brickand-mortar wine retail and now in the online world at JJ Buckley, both with different target audiences and different results,” she says. “But the one constant between them has been the way social media creates and solidifies relationships within the industry. I could name endless examples from all aspects of the business—from production to distribution, retail to journalism, marketing to bloggers. Social Media doesn’t replace ‘real’ relationships, it creates them.” ■

A 2010 Recap And Why We’re Excited About The New Year BY ALIA AKKAM

year ago at this time the industry celebrated an improved economy. As 2010 draws to a close we’re even more confident, and why wouldn’t we be? Hot new products launched, customers spent more time on bar stools, brands exponentially expanded their reach by mastering tweets. Here is a recap of the key events, trends and launches that defined a very progressive year. Plus some industry tastemakers give us their 2011 predictions to boot.

TO SHIP OR NOT TO SHIP?

HR 5034, better known as the CARE Act, has haunted—and divided—the industry all year long. Since the Supreme Court’s ruling in Granholm vs. Heald, direct-to-consumer wine shipping has become commonplace, yet states continue to face challenges in federal courts regarding their authority to regulate alcohol. HR 5034 would reaffirm and protect the state’s primary authority to regulate beverage alcohol, a decision backed by wholesalers. Yet trade groups like the Distilled Spirits Council, the Wine Institute and Beer Institute deem HR 5034 discriminatory and anti-competitive. How will HR 5034 evolve in 2011?

“PRIVATE” MATTERS For years, the government has held court over control states. But this year saw some states, including Virginia, North Carolina, Washington and Mississippi, considering serious alternative proposals that would shift spirits and wine sales over to the private sector. Those for the move say it could be a state revenue booster. So far the arguments in support of the current systems have held sway, but the dialog continues.

THE LITTLE GUYS DO WIN The Last Store on Main Street Coalition, an alliance of New York-based small retailers, wineries and union members, beat the big box stores this August. Governor Paterson’s idea of allowing wine sales in every supermarket and bodega across the state was successfully rejected by the state legislature. This legislation threatened to put thousands of New Yorkers out of work, and shut down indie wine stores big on product diversity and knowledgeable customer service just to fill a budget gap. Another

triumphant example: when Massachusetts residents voted yes on the Question 1 referendum this November, to repeal the 6.25% alcohol tax introduced last year that had shoppers fleeing to New Hampshire to buy in bulk.

WARREN BUFFETT This spring, billionaire investor Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway announced that subsidiary McLane Company—a behemoth supply chain services leader—acquired Kahn Ventures, Inc., parent company of Empire Distributors, Inc. and Empire Distributors of North Carolina, Inc. What did this mean for Empire? More resources and opportunities for the company, and for Buffett, it laid a foundation for acquiring other wholesalers in the future.

MEET BILL ACKMAN Fortune Brands Inc., the Deerfield, IL-based company whose large home and security division includes Master Locks and Moen faucets, found itself in the limelight again


Year in Review this year after Bill Ackman, founder and CEO of Pershing Square Capital Management LP, acquired 11% of the company. Fortune Brands’ beverage alcohol group— Beam Global Spirits & Wine—has always been considered a prize among rival drinks groups, but the most recent report suggested that the spirits business will be staying inside Fortune. Only 2011 will tell.

CAFFEINE CRACKDOWN

College students loved drinking cans of Four Loko, the caffeinated malt liquor drink

that comes in a variety of fruit flavors. But, after it was linked to a string of deaths—the caffeine was purported to mask the effects of alcohol, convincing users to imbibe way more than they needed—the Food and Drug Administration intervened.

MORE CONSOLIDATION? Discussions around a Diageo and Moët Hennessy combination continued to hover in the air now that LVMH took a stake in Hermès. Some anticipate that CEO Bernard Arnault’s next move might be to divest his drinks division. At the wholesale tier in 2010, RNDC announced its expansion into the Hoosier State as it entered into an agreement with National Wine & Spirits, LLC, Indiana. Also, Southern Wine & Spirits formed joint ventures with F.P. Winner of Maryland and Washington D.C. as well J.J. Taylor Companies, Inc. of Minnesota. Associated Distributors,

LLC, a member of The Charmer Sunbelt Group, acquired Virginia Distributing Company of Richmond in October.

IN SEARCH OF SPIRITS W.J. Deutsch & Sons is known for its portfolio of fine wines. But something interesting happened along the way: they launched a spirits division in 2009, and upped its game by importing Luksosowa Polish vodka this year. It’s a trend we saw more of in 2010. Consider Frederick Wildman & Sons, which further rounded out its indie spirits offerings by breaking into mezcal territory with Ilegal. Palm Bay International also saw the benefits of expanding beyond wine with its new spirits division—it has already seen large gains with a portfolio of winning products like Aperol and Skinnygirl Margarita.

THE TRENDS WE SAW

SEEING GREEN

NEW WORLD WINES

A surge of interest in green wine & spirits has proven that an affinity of good-for-the planet products isn’t a passing trend but a lifestyle change. France-based Fair Trade Spirits Company debuted this year, flaunting vodka made from Fair Trade-certified Bolivian quinoa, and goji berry and coffee liqueur. We also noticed wine bars like biodynamic Anfora in New York City opening up, and wines served on tap at haunts like Russell House Tavern in Cambridge, MA.

Wine from Maryland? Yes, and sparkling varieties from Georgia (the country, not the state), too. This year, a spiked interest in unconventional wine regions from Greece to Portugal (for more than its coveted Port), underscores customer excitement to tackle the new.

Liquore di Milano or Cocchi Americano, which Eric Seed’s Haus Alpenz introduced to the U.S. market. Fernet Branca became an obsession in the mixology capital of San Francisco and Adam Seger, the Chicago mixologist behind Nacional 27, debuted Hum, a blend of rum, herbs and spices.

WINES MADE EASY

FEELING BITTER

Wine is not as intimidating as it once was, but it’s become even less of a mystery with Facebook pages revealing playful personalities behind brands; Wine Library's Gary Vaynerchuk dispensing no-nonsense advice; and books like Mark Oldman’s Brave New World of Wine hitting bookshelves.

Never mind the shortage of Angostura that had the industry in panic mode: Bartenders have long loved adding bitters to their concoctions for richer, deeper flavors, and this year we really took notice of their presence in multi-layered cocktails. Undoubtedly, the hottest newcomer is The Bitter Truth from Germany, which snagged the best new product award at this summer’s Tales of the Cocktail for its celery version.

UNSUNG HERO Last year we spotted more people sipping aromatic Pisco Sours and the affinity for this Peruvian (and less well-known Chilean) spirit hasn’t faltered in 2010, where we saw the debut of one of the most anticipated new brands: Encanto. This pisco, a blend of three different varieties produced in Peru’s Ica Valley, is the brainchild of San Francisco bartender Duggan McDonnell, Peruvian distiller Carlos Romero and sommelier/importer, Walter Moore.

AFTER-DINNER TIPPLE The cordial has come a long way from the nights of swirling it in a glass from an armchair. This year saw bartenders constantly reaching for bottles of Italian newcomers like Stefano Turrini’s Dimmi

ing your cocktail a watery mess? The days of the standard ice machine are kaput at serious bars. First there was Kold-Draft, which showed just how serious bartenders were by serving drinks with pristine one-inch cubes of ice. Now there’s crushed ice, blocks of oblong ice and ice that gets chipped off a big block and straight into a glass depending upon the type of cocktail be-

ing served. This year’s most impressive program: Weather Up in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood, which harvests its own ice.

Hugh Reynolds has created a version for Temple Bar in Cambridge, MA) proving some things are worth the wait.

BEER FOR DINNER OLDER IS BETTER Jeffrey Morgenthaler decided to age Negronis in Portland, OR, at Clyde Common setting off a national trend (Josh Pearson is experimenting at Sepia in Chicago, and

Beer is the new wine according to Jim Koch, founder of Boston Beer Company. Looks like he's right: 2010 saw more and more restaurants and bars passionately pairing interesting brews with food.

NEW SPIRIT LAUNCHES Absolut Brooklyn: First it was New Orleans, then Los Angeles and Boston followed. This year, the spotlight was on stylish Brooklyn when Absolut rolled out the fourth flavor of its annual limited-edition city series. A collaboration with the borough’s own Spike Lee, Absolut Brooklyn is infused with ginger and apple flavors, packaged in a bottle bearing an image of the Brooklyn’s most celebrated icon—the brownstone stoop. Avión Tequila: Skeptics of product placement only need to watch an episode of Entourage to be convinced of its power. Ultrapremium Tequila Avión (silver,reposado and añejo), interwoven into the HBO show’s storyline, is in high demand among customers, so much so it expanded distribution to 12 states months ahead of schedule. Bacardi Torched Cherry and Rock Coconut: Continuing its response to consumer demand for vibrant new flavors (remember 2009’s Dragon Berry?), Bacardi introduced Torched Cherry rum, combining Barbados cherries with South African Torch Plant

aloe, and followed up with Rock Coconut, coconut rum infused with rock melon and coconut water. Banks 5-Island Rum: With PDT’s Jim Meehan as a senior advisor for the brand, it’s no surprise Banks white rum is already a bartender favorite. Inspired by 18th century explorer Joseph Banks, it’s made with an ambitious blend of rums from five different islands—Trinidad, Jamaica, Guyana, Barbados and Indonesia— lending itself well to complex tropical cocktails. Beefeater Summer and Winter: Beefeater 24 may have had the creative bartender in mind, but Master Distiller Desmond Payne crafted limited edition Beefeater Summer for the consumer. This light, crisp gin, with notes of nuanced elderflower, blackcurrant and hibiscus is ideal for picnic-style gin & tonics. The second installment, however, Beefeater Winter, is destined for holiday punches with its soothing cinnamon, nutmeg, and pine aromatics. Blackheart: Bearing an image of sassy Blackheart, the pirate pin-up girl the rum is named after, Blackheart’s bottle is indeed clever. Beyond the playful aspect, however, the introduction of a high-proof (93!) premium spiced rum points to the impact of a growing segment.

Crème Yvette: Those heirloom bottles of Crème Yvette (it disappeared in 1969) discovered in the Cooper family stash inspired Rob Cooper, the same visionary who brought us St-Germain, to recreate the family recipe. Crown Royal Black: Crown Royal went upscale with Crown Royal Black, a bold 90proof premium expression of its signature Canadian whisky. Full-bodied and smooth, it’s aged in charred black oak barrels. Cruzan 9: Cruzan rum ventured into the burgeoning spice segment with complex Cruzan 9, melding allspice, vanilla, pepper, ginger, mace, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon and juniper berry. Maker’s 46: Bourbon gets the Scotch treatment with Maker’s 46. After the traditional Maker’s Mark reaches maturity, it’s drained from the barrels and toasted French oak staves go in before the whiskey returns for another aging session to acquire distinct vanilla, caramel and spice characteristics. Nolet’s Finest Gins: The Nolet name is best known for launching powerhouse


Year in Review Ketel One vodka (2010 also saw the debut of long-awaited Ketel One Oranje). In 2009 they introduced herbal liqueur Harlem, and this year they turned their attention to gin: Nolet’s Finest Gins include floral, fruitforward Nolet’s Silver, and Nolet’s Reserve, the world’s first super-luxe sipping gin. Pinnacle Whipped: Brands are never at a loss for creating new flavored vodka hybrids. But sometimes, the simplest approach is the most effective. Take Pinnacle, which only had to recall nostalgic childhood mugs of hot chocolate to strike gold with its imitation whipped cream flavor. Versatile and whimsical, Pinnacle Whipped is one of the country’s most popular new vodka flavors. Revel Stoke: A carefree, rugged man who digs spending his free time in the great outdoors is the target demographic of Revel

SALE TRE ENDS S

Stoke spiced Canadian whisky, blending Madagascar bourbon vanilla with dashes of ginger, ground bark of cinnamon, coriander and cardamom. ROKK: RÖKK vodka sources its crisp, clean spring water from an idyllic Swedish countryside. As if that wasn’t pure enough, post-distillation a freeze-filtration process ensures this Diageo newcomer is exquisitely smooth. Skinnygirl Margarita: Real Housewife Bethenny Frankel has managed to convert the calorie-conscious into Margarita lovers with her ready-todrink breakout brand, Skinnygirl Margarita. At just 100 calories per serving, it’s all-natural, sweetened with agave nectar, and points to a growing trend in good-for-you cocktails.

– Tad Carducci, Tippling Brothers

“There are tons of awesome craft beers being brewed in this country now, and more and more people are going to discover them.”

“More bar tools—shakers, squeezers, strainers; the continued advancement of design to aid both a well-made drink as well as the ergonomic repetitions of bartending.”

“More focus on ‘what grows together, goes together.’ Schnitzel with Austrian Grüner Veltliner, salumi with Lambrusco, Valençay with Sancerre or Pouilly-Fumé—all classic pairings of local food specialties with local wines; it works and it’s fun.”

“I expect to see less high dollar bars/restaurants opening and more gastropub type spots popping up. People still want to go out and enjoy a great cocktail and a tasty meal, but they don't want to mortgage their house for the experience.”

Grapes on Tap The New Wine-In-Keg Wine Phenomenon Takes Off in Restaurants Nationwide BY JEFFERY LINDENMUTH

I

nterested in adding a great value California Cabernet to your wine selection? Ok, draught or bottle? Yes, following some largely forgotten attempts in the ’70s and a few pioneering restaurant programs, it looks like fine wine may finally be poised to join our favorite brews, flowing from taps at bars and restaurants across America. Considering wine on tap makes so much sense for the very same reasons beer on tap continues to prosper—packaging efficiency, a lower carbon footprint, flexible serving options and cost effectiveness that finds its way to the bottom line—it’s been a long time coming. In the case of wine, you can even add reduced loss to spoilage and cork taint as benefits. The logistics of tapping wine are surprisingly similar to beer. Wine can be packaged into popular 1/6 barrel kegs, like those commonly used for craft beer, (each holding just over five gallons or about 26 bottles of wine). However, unlike beer which is held under sufficient pressure of CO2 to force carbonation into solution, wine requires only enough pressure to drive the liquid through the system, typically under five PSI, and of-

ten as low as one PSI for a direct draw from the keg. In addition, CO2 and beer gas mixtures containing CO2 are usually replaced by inert gases, like Nitrogen or Argon, which serve to protect and preserve the wine. Since there is no CO2 to be held in solution, and wine is usually not served as cold as beer, the glycol jackets that keep beer lines cool become unnecessary. In many respects, serving good wine on tap is far simpler and less nuanced than achieving a good draught beer.

Tapping Savings So what’s taken so long to divorce the cork and bottle? Aside from some early efforts by Anheuser-Busch and Gallo, many smaller wine producers and wine distributors have been unwilling or unable to tackle the maintenance that is required of a draught product. It’s far easier to just sell a case of wine and forget about. And, wine laws in several large markets, such as Texas, Pennsylvania and Florida, aren’t designed to accommodate the volumes of wine in kegs. On the other hand, beer distributors, while accustomed to the service required with a draught product— tweaking pres-

sures, certifying gas tanks, cleaning lines, installing new systems and managing keg deliveries and deposits—don’t typically handle wine or pal around with sommeliers. “Everybody is looking for ways to improve margins, and the ability to produce six and a half cases of wine with no cardboard, no corks, no bottles and no labels means that the keg is paid for the first time you sell it,” says John Hulihan, vice president, beverage and hospitality, Lark Creek Restaurant Group in San Francisco, who drives to local wineries to retrieve custom kegs of wine, while swapping out empties. His trips to Truchard Vineyards, Saintsbury and Paul Dolan Vineyards are rewarded with 1/6 barrel kegs of wine that save about 35% on the purchase price over bottles, creating a local by-the-glass program that offers great value. Ryan Schwartz, COO, Quench Fine Wines Ltd., has seen rapid acceptance of tap wines in Arizona, where Quench distributes Silvertap. As the pioneer in the market, Silvertap, which plans to have eight to ten wines under the Silvertap moniker in the market by Spring 2011, was able to train the Quench sales

staff in fitting tap wine to an account, whether that meant changing out a beer line or a complete tap installation. In an interesting twist, Quench has been acquired by Hensley & Co, the regional distributor for Anheuser-Busch products, bringing more draught experience to the endeavor. “It looks like this is going to be a very good growth category for the future. If you look at trendsetting cities like San Francisco and New York, tap wine is already succeeding. We wanted to be ahead of the curve,” says Schwartz, who sees wine-centric restaurants as the quickest to embrace the advantages of tap wine. “You clearly get better value, eliminate spoilage or waste and reduce your carbon footprint with tap wine. Now, we just need for more wineries to catch up.”

Quality's The Thing Brent Karlicek, wine director, Postino Wine Café, was the first to introduce tap wine in Phoenix. The response to wine on tap at Postino Central has been enormous. “Having introduced the format to Phoenix, we worked pretty hard at evolving the guest’s perception of the medium. Thankfully, quality speaks for itself. A taste of our featured wine has made many a believer,” says Karlicek, noting that tap wine saves Postino about 25% of cost over the same wine in bottle. Charles Bieler echoes the sentiment that quality must prevail for tap wine to succeed. Partnering with Bruce Schneider of Schneider Vineyards on Long Island and New York distributor Michael Skurnik Wines, Bieler unleashed Gotham Project, a New York Finger Lakes Riesling in a 1/6 barrel keg. Bieler personally services prestigious wine-savvy New York accounts like Paul Grieco’s Terroir Tribeca wine bar and Daniel Boulud’s DBGB, making

occasional house calls with his tap wine “doctor’s kit.” “We’ve had these 10 accounts or so and have worked with them really closely to make sure they have a great experience,” says Bieler. “It’s not complicated, but it is something new. Distributors are interested, but also require training and support that we are happy to provide.” With hands-on involvement, Bieler and Schneider are bringing ever greater innovation to the tap handle, technologies that may improve not just tap wine, but beer as well. After evaluating countless types of tubing, the partners arrived at the Valpar Flavour Lock system, which lab tests conducted by Jim Neal of N2 wines in Napa indicated preserved the wine in the line for five days at room temperature, with no changes in flavor or free SO2. “It’s the perfect moment to install the right lines. Wine often has delicate flavors, and we want anyone who serves wine to select the best equipment,” says Bieler. Gotham Project has spawned a second company, Filling Station, which

will assist other wineries in properly placing their wine in kegs. “It’s focused on helping other wineries get into the business, while putting in place our vision for high-quality standards for filling, production, quality and cleanliness. It will also include a hotline and support for clients,” says Bieler. With Gotham Project 2009 Finger Lakes Riesling nearly sold-out, a Cabernet Franc from the North Fork of Long Island and German Riesling, arriving from the Pfalz in bladders, will fill Gotham Project kegs until the next vintage.

Going National Industry veteran Hugh Thacher, founder and owner of San Francisco Wine Exchange, believes the quality, value and environmental imperative make Silvertap wines a worthy cause, despite the legislative hurdles. “The way beverage alcohol laws have been written, we are forced to tackle it on a state-by-state basis. In Florida, you can’t even do it right now, and Texas requires special keg sizes. But it’s an exciting new challenge for us, just like when we introduced people to the world’s best Zinfandel or a New Zealand wine,” says Thacher. Thacher points out that the impact of signing one large national account to quality tap will reap huge benefits, for the on-premise account and for the environment, noting that a 75,000-case wine replaced with tap wine means 900,000 less glass bottles to ship and recycle. “We are not interested in commodity wine, but world-class wines. And these are wines I know and love that happen to be in kegs. In addition, it offers environmental advantages that are mindboggling. I would encourage anyone who is passionate about fine wine and making a difference in the world to get involved,” says Thacher. ■
