When we launched Rosé Water – the original Wine Water – back in 2019, the hard seltzer craze was ramping up, consumers were taking notice of nutritional metrics, and everyone seemed to be lusting after the newest, ready-to-drink, better-for-you, adult beverage. All while wine drinkers remained woefully underserved. A great time to introduce Wine Water, right?
We worked hard to get Rosé Water placed in as many markets as possible, saw good success, and then followed it up with the release of Wine Water Sauvignon Blanc. While this was also well received, things got weird when the pandemic hit. Distribution and promotional events shut down but yet, we persevered and continued to try and get as many retail placements in as many cities as possible.
As a family-owned company, we may not have the legions of sales people or largest advertising budgets but we stayed connected with our friends and family through social media and it continued to be our greatest source of motivation.
To that end, we’d like to thank everyone who took the time to like, comment, share, email, or even call us to talk all things Wine Water. We couldn’t be more thankful for your support.
It was that engagement that helped put the release of Wine Water Chardonnay and Wine Water Cabernet on the calendar for mid-next year, encouraged a new, Tropical Punch and Fruit Punch Wine Water brand called Sandbar scheduled for release in early 2022, and guided partnership discussions with Kendra Scott Jewelry, W Hotels, and other like-minded brands.
We also surveyed some of our biggest fans to try and find out how Wine Water was being received – good or bad – and want to share some of those results with you.
