If you run a winery, you will want to participate in this Annual Survey. It takes very little time, costs nothing more than time, carries a very good return in market insight, and I guarantee you won't be added to a marketing list. Its not the way we do business.
Each year, about 500 wineries take part in our Annual Wine Conditions Survey from all regions in the US. It will only take about 5 minutes of your time to respond. In exchange, we will send you the results of the complete survey, graphs, and some early analysis on wine industry conditions for your use in planning going into 2014. Below is the link to the analysis from last year if you want to see what you get for your time.
View the analysis from last year here.
The survey has just 15 survey questions, 4 of which are identifiers such as the region where you produce wine. The 11 core survey questions are geared at understanding vintners' challenges in the present operating environment. We will condense the comments and return the information in a non-identifiable manner so you can get a better feeling for what your peers see, and comments they have about the present business conditions.
Your answers will be strictly confidential and again, I promise not add you to any marketing list. We will send you the results of the survey at no cost in late November or early December.
The survey will be open through the end of business Friday, November 8th so don't wait.
If you are not the best person to answer these questions, we would greatly appreciate you forwarding this URL to the person at your winery best suited to respond.
Thanks for your support in better understanding the US Wine Business.
