Invest in Global Wine Export

Global Wine Export is a company in the new, modern age of wine.  We purchase wine directly from wineries for our private labels and sell domestically and overseas to supermarket chains in large volumes, 500 to 1,000 cases at a time.  If you read the trade reports, especially the Nielsen Reports, millennials are not into traditional wine. Instead, they are looking for new wines to explore. 


We are currently entering a new area of wine packaging: canned wine! This is a new and fast-growing area of the wine business. We have a supplier that is so enthusiastic they bought 2 million cans. 


This makes trash disposal much easier, and there's no broken glass. We believe many recreational areas are finding canned wine much more convenient for boating, picnicking and for other activities with which a can is a better package to carry outdoors.

What We Have Accomplished So Far

The company has sold over 9,000 cases of wine to supermarkets such as Grocery Outlet and Ray's, as well as to overseas purchasers in Norway and Singapore.  We have an entree into South Korea from one of the business leaders there.  We are also setting up an export operation for Vietnam. However, this will take a lot of travel to Korea and Vietnam, which is expensive.  In addition, we are putting together a program for major supermarkets in the U.S. such as Albertsons/Safeway and Kroger to help them in the contest with Amazon - Whole Foods.  Wine has the highest profit margin of any item on a grocer's shelves, and grocery stores are gearing up by expanding their wine selection.  According to a Nielsen survey, the average purchase in a grocery store is $45. However, if wine is purchased, the average is $70 of which only $15 is wine.  This has awakened supermarkets that selling wine, besides being very profitable in itself, raises the total grocery purchase too.

The supermarket companies market our private label wine brands for three reasons:

The company can give supermarket companies brand label exclusivity because of our private labels, thereby avoiding price competition. Even the canned wine is private label.

We fit the wine to the market and price point instead of trying to force a product into the marketplace.

Our company owns the brand and therefore has something to sell as an exit strategy.  The company is not just brokering someone else’s wine.

Market Success

Recently, wine brands have been selling at outrageous prices.  This is a brand, not a winery nor a vineyard.


Examples

1. “Barefoot” was sold to Gallo for over $100 million

2. “Mark West” was sold to Constellation Brands in March 2015 for $140 million 

3. “Meomi” was sold to Constellation Brands in August 2015 for $315 million

4. “The Prisoner” sold last year for $285 million  

5. Orin Swift (which no one ever heard of) was sold to Gallo last May for $100 million 

6. Schrader sold last year for $60 million.  Once again: not a winery nor a vineyard, just a brand.


All of these sales were listed in the Wall Street Journal & Wine Spectator.

How Our Business Works

The Company works similarly to French negotiant, buying directly from wineries in Oregon, Washington and California. In addition, we buy wines from Spain, Brazil and South Africa. Although we sell overseas, we also sell to some major market chains here in the West. In addition, we sell some overstocks & distressed wines that we find, which are quality wines at bargain prices.  All the wines have been vetted by our tasting panel, which consists of the former president of the Oregon Wine Board, a former retailer & several others in the trade. 


Beginning in March, we commenced selling canned wine.  This new category is up 195% from last year.  According to Nielsen, events like South X Southwest have banned glass, allowing cans only. Think about it, cans will not break and are easy to carry and easy to chill. What's not to like about canned wine?  It can be tossed into your bag without a moments thought.  It can be opened without a corkscrew and drunk without a glass. How easy is that?  We have a supplier of quality wines, and yet our costs are lower than most others.


We purchase these wines in bulk or as "shiners" (bottles without labels).  Our label artist creates labels for us such as "Black Lab Cab", which are then submitted to the US Treasury for label approval.  Once approved, we can use these labels to create geographically exclusive brand areas for supermarkets.  This allows the market to sell this label without fear of competition.  

What Makes Our Products Different

The difference between our wines and what wineries are presenting are that these wines are specifically designed for a certain market.  We are not trying to stuff some wines we have in inventory into a supermarket.  We are providing the markets with wines that are designed for their market, on a quality basis and at a price point that meets the market's demands.  Canned wines are a paradigm of what makes us tick.  We find a new product that is changing the market and move quickly to take advantage of the changes in the marketplace.



Our main job is talking to wine buyers at supermarkets and chain liquor stores.  In these discussions, we determine the market that the buyer is trying to reach, such as the price point the buyer is looking to meet and the most popular types of wines they are trying to market.  We then go to our sources, both in the US and overseas, and find an appropriate product for that market.  Currently, we are looking at South African wines because of currency valuations and the fact that, in spite of vastly improved quality, South Africa has not made a real marketing effort in the US.  We also have a vast number of sources in California, Oregon and Washington.

Market area exclusivity for our brand labels, means no price competition for that label in their market area.


We can provide private store labels of any design within a matter of days.


On many occasions, we will provide the same wine under different labels to different stores in the same area.  This gives us flexibility in marketing areas.


Private labels allow the stores to increase their margins because they do not have price competition with other stores in the area for that particular label.  No one can look on Wine Searcher and compare pricing.


We can negotiate large discounts from suppliers because of the volume of our purchases.  We may purchase a large amount of wine, but we utilize three different labels to place in different stores.

Market and Industry

The wholesale wine market is dominated by several large distributors such as Southern Glazers Wine and Spirits and Republic National.  Many small distributors have fallen out because selling somebody else's wine to small stores and markets is not an economic unit.  For this reason, we believe it is necessary to have the greater margins acquired by purchasing wine in bulk in order to compete.  The demographic aspect coming into the market is Millennials and Generation Xers. These younger people are changing the market place, because they are not tied to traditional brands. According to Nielsen Surveys, 86% will purchase a new or different brand if they find the label interesting or have heard of the brand through social media.  They are leading the transition to canned wines.

According to the Nielsen Report on Wine in Supermarkets, these markets have finally found out that wine is one of the highest-margin items in their stores.  Nielsen also found that the average checkout at a supermarket is $45.  


When wine is purchased, the average checkout is $75, of which $15 is for wine.  Therefore, supermarkets are enlarging their wine departments in order to capture more wine purchases.  We want to help them by providing quality wines at reasonable prices.  

  • Private label wines are the fastest growing wine category in the U.S. wine market.
  • We fit the product to the customer and have complete flexibility as to varietals, labels, aging, and pricing. 
  • We have low inventory requirements. Many times we do not touch the wine. Bottling, shipping, and labeling are handled by the contracted winery.
  • We have total flexibility in sourcing from the U.S. and overseas.
  • No vineyards, no winery, no capital costs for property or equipment. 

Invest in Global Wine Exports Today!

Global Wine Exports has already had immense success marketing, packaging and distributing wines from various vineyards across the U.S., and now we're moving into canned wines!


Wine in a can is fun, easy to travel with and to dispose of, and it makes for a great alternative to lugging around a heavy bottle. The market is prime for a subset of wine that markets directly to millennials, who are often looking for affordability above all else. With over 9,000 cases of wine already sold to supermarkets and liquor stores, we have the experience and passion that will buoy us in our disruption of the current wine market.

Although we sell overseas, we also sell to some major market chains here in the West. In addition, we sell some overstocks & distressed wines we find which are quality wines at bargain prices.  As an example, we are selling 430 cases of wine to All Seasons Markets in Washington and Oregon from a winery that was sold and the new owners want to get rid of all the old labels. The wine is good but we are buying it for cheap as a liquidation and the market is getting wine at a bargain price.  All the wines have been vetted by our tasting panel which consists of the former president of the Oregon Wine Board, a former retailer & several others in the trade.
