In that time the family-owned winery expanded 10 times its original size. The winery has the capacity to have approximately 300 million litres on site with more wine produced and stored elsewhere. Chengdu as the center of southwestern China, has a fast-grwoing wine market and the potential is tremendous. The Chengdu wine market has developed late compared with those of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. As the economy has grown, there is continu ing market potential.

[ Restaurants and Hotels] Retail on premise sales are possible through many of the thousands of restau rants and hotels in Chengdu. As a rule of thumb an establishment with on premise sales of at least two twelve bottle cases should be considered. The traditional alphabetical ac count classification is currently in use for the on premise trade. Group A restaurants: these accounts sell a minimum of 50 cases a month and include licensed premises such as the Crown Inn Hotel, Galaxy Imperial Hotel, and the California Garden Hotel. The consumers in the above places are mainly successful gov ernment functionaries and successful businessmen. Their relatively high social status 6
is reflected in their social drinking of premium wines. These consumers understand and appreciate good wine. They are a new generation of knowledgeable fine wine drinkers Â¨C they represent a key market for fine wine. Premium varietal reds are the favorites with, quality, value and brand recognition are key sales factors for these consumers. [ Department stores and Supermarkets ] The retail trade for home sales is typical of the successful Chinese model. The A store grouping include Carrefour, Wal-Mart, Trust-mart, Metro and York-Benimaru. , etc which are the high-end of the supermarket where medium-priced wines are sold more. The B store classification includes all the are medium-sized supermarkets that are spread out throughout the city and its outlying regions. The C classification includes the smallsized convenience stores. Sales characteristics in department stores and supermarkets: The bulk of wine consumers who buy in department stores and supermarkets appear to be strongly influenced by advertising. They have a certain level of loyalty towards their brands, but lack wine appreciation ability. Quality, consistency at a good price is the best selling point for them.â€¨ Based on the analysis above, Young & Rubican decided to hold two major advertising campaigns target at wholesales such as restaurants and hotels, and retailers, as individual customers.
