"Reading Wine Business Monthly is essential for winemakers because it covers day-to-day issues we face in winemaking, grape growing and the marketing of wines." "I read Wine Business Monthly cover-to-cover because it has everything I need to run a successful production operation–from articles on new equipment to new strategies for crush, bottling and cellar operations. It also covers the critical issues of marketing, and that's important to me." "Wine Business Monthly helps to keep me abreast of all aspects of the wine industry, from financial issues and production procedures, to winery topics and sales and marketing." "I especially like the practical, hands-on applications in Wine Business Monthly, with stories on oak adjuncts, production, packaging, trends and consumer perceptions."
