You Reap What You Sow

For many wineries, the challenge of finding a distributor is second only to their frustration with the results. But is the distributor always to blame? In this age of consolidation, with wholesalers’ portfolios bursting at the seams, a winery’s success is dependent on its ability to develop partnerships with distributors through on-going communications, sales support and shoulder-to-shoulder work in the market.

Bringing more than 25 years experience in the business to bear, Dasté & Associates is a results-oriented, relationship-driven organization that understands the complexities of wine sales, distribution and marketing. Our services are designed to provide clients with a cost-effective alternative to in-house sales and marketing. Take a look.
