Where Does Our Wine Go?
Visitors to the winery often ask me what we do with our wine??? I suppose 10,000 cases of production may not sound like much wine compared to some larger wineries and it may surprise you to know that JARVIS wines are now distributed in 35 states in the U.S., as well as being exported to South East Asia and Alberta Canada. (see list of our states of distribution on the next page) Wine in our price category usually appears only in high end restaurants and wine shops, so there is still enough of our wines to support those states.
I have always thought if we made the very best wines possible, and they were consistent year to year, they would speak for themselves in the marketplace. And so, for the last 11 years we have done no advertising, but instead have relied on word-of -mouth from our loyal customers. We also have a talented group of people working at JARVIS who maintain our relationships with customers at the winery and also with restaurant and retail customers across the country. Their efforts over the last year sold JARVIS wines to about 1300 restaurants and 500 retailers in the U.S.
For some of you this information comes as no surprise as you have been supporting JARVIS wines through your favorite restaurant or retailer for years. For the rest of you, we hope you keep an eye out for our wines on your favorite wine lists and shelves. We can approach restaurants and retailers where you would like to see our wines. Many restaurants have the mistaken idea that they can’t even get our wine. You can use our e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
