Winning Impact

Winning competitions is what determines your pace in this competitive world. And more so for such a competitive industry as wine & spirits. There are so many wine brands competing with each other for front-row seats on a wine shelf, where they are the first ones visible to customers. In such a scenario, winning a medal can act as one of your most powerful marketing tools as well as a selling point.

Your winning medal stickers can be used on your brand support tools. Some of the best places to showcase your USA Wine Ratings medal would be:

1. Brand Deck

2. Sell Sheet

3. Shelf Talkers

4. Case Cards

5. Bottle Neckers

But wait, there's a lot more than a medal from USA Wine Ratings can do for you. This is how a USA Wine Ratings medal will help you in creating a solid impression on the wine market across the globe.
