Wine industry veteran Claudia Zimmermann announced today the formal launch of WineTask, a new wine compliance consulting firm. Based on Zimmermann’s 10+ years of alcoholic beverage industry experience in the United States and abroad, WineTask provides clients with a clear strategy to expedite logistics, handle wine and beverage compliance across federal and state lines, and minimize the potential for non-compliance penalties.
“WineTask is the culmination of all my wine industry experience and compliance knowledge,” says Zimmermann. “The company mission is simple but important: overcome regulatory hurdles so wine and alcoholic beverage professionals can focus on what they do best.”
WineTask works with wineries, importers, wholesalers, manufacturers, and more. The company’s wine compliance services include:
- Wine/alcoholic beverage permit applications, registrations, and renewals
- In-depth analysis and reports for operations, shipping, and taxes
- Paperwork regulations, licensing, record keeping, wine shipping and tax reporting
- Compliance consulting and training
- Software systems setup and maintenance
- Compliance consultation for foreign firms exploring the American market
Whether a company is facing an existing compliance issue or seeking a preventative strategy, WineTask can create a comprehensive solution. WineTask can act as a one-time analyst or as a longer term consultant to ensure continual compliance.
“WineTask’s entire focus is on wine and alcohol compliance, and we stay up-to-date on the latest laws and regulations,” says Zimmermann. “By working with all levels within the alcoholic beverage industry, we can ensure that your company stays on top of federal and state compliance.”
WineTask uses a tailored approach for each client’s situation. Combined with online access to shipping and wholesale reports, along with the capability to work with existing systems, WineTask represents a new way for wineries and alcoholic beverage companies to do business: faster, easier, and safer for a smooth compliance process.
