A Great Way To Drive Business And Traffic To Your Holiday Tastings
You Pour, We Publish
The great “Thanksgiving Pour” is coming your way. Are your ready?
You have worked all Fall and now your fine wines are finally ready for tasting, and so is Syndical!! Pouring for the Thanksgiving weekend is a lot of hard work.
In fact, here in Oregon we have a special trade party just to celebrate its conclusion at the Joel Palmer house at a secret time and place, but at some time after the great pour.
The Thanksgiving weekend is an important event for wineries because they show off their wines from previous years and hopefully allow barrel tasting of this year’s delicious, yet youthful, early production.
Sometimes the great “Thanksgiving Pour” even coincides with the long awaited Malolactic fermentation, the process which is standard for most red wines and some white wines as well. But like Malolactic fermentation, it can happen all at once and sometimes at unexpected times.
An event’s preparation can be like that as well. It can sneak up on you and you don’t need any last minute nightmares like trying to get your events published when its too late.
That’s why you need a syndication and events publishing service like Syndical. These promotional services often cost less than a bottle of wine per month which means you can promote many things, anytime, each and every month.

If a winery could use a syndication or publishing service like Syndical’s to get the word out about their special wine selling events, like the upcoming “Thanksgiving Pouring”, as well as their other events, they would have significantly more time to prepare for the event’s hard-core logistics, or just make more wine.
Many companies promote their events all year round, the hard way. They think their holiday events might deserve special treatment.
They might try a press release or a time consuming web form filling session with the family, email, and faxing . Ad-hoc holiday event promotion is a lot of work if you don’t have a partner. But fortunately there are a few services like Syndical, that reduce your marketing burden.
