Let’s celebrate Gold Medal Winners


When you reach the top, word travels quickly. Just ask Lorraine Raguseo of Quintessential Wines, whose Gold Medal Winning Wines Princesa Cava and La Pincoya Cabarnet Sauvignon were featured at the Los Angeles County Fair. Not only did this exposure, along with the Gold Medals they both received from the Los Angeles International Wine Competition, help boost "brand awareness" but, based on how well they did in the competition, major retail chain BevMo featured them both in a mailer, Thirsty Times, and also in the stores themselves as Gold Medal Winners. Needless to say, all of the above has greatly increased the popularity and sales of the two labels, especially in such an important outlet for us as BevMo. We're looking forward to exceeding our Gold Medal count in this year's competition.
