WE’RE ON A MISSION TO MAKE CRAFT WINE AS AVAILABLE IN THE MARKETPLACE AS CRAFT BEER AND SPIRITS
Craftwine.org is a membership organization all about helping you—the owners, vintners and winemakers of small production wineries—succeed. We are not new at this. We have been making a difference for small wineries across the country since 2016.
We are actively involved in creating a market for Craft Wine. We even have an online marketplace called NxtCrush, where every transaction goes directly to you, the producer, as if it happened right on your own website—no additional cost per bottle fee, no additional costs.
Consumer demand is an important part of this equation so we have been working hard to develop a consumer market for Craft Wine, your wine. As of September 2019, the hashtag #craftwine was used over 35,000 times by wine consumers on social media over 30 days, 20,000 times on Instagram alone. As recently as 2017, that number was near zero.
We help you realize your most important goals and help develop unique opportunities for you to reach them. If you feel like you are in an uphill battle, it is not just your imagination. A Washington University study shows just how difficult the challenge you have taken on as a small independent winery. In fact, if you are a winery under 5,000 cases, economies of scale work against you. You are likely paying 25-50% more per case to produce your wine as a winery producing 20,000 cases.
We are here to help with that. One of our goals is to help close that economies of scale gap. We do that through the discounts and benefits our sponsors offer to Craftwine.org members and the partnerships we create.
With years of experience and unmatched credentials, Craftwine.org is uniquely equipped to develop creative solutions that help you. Our goal is to make a significant and lasting impact on the wine industry for the benefit of our members.
We often hear things like “Well, my wine is different. It’s not like the wine you find everywhere else…” Yeah, we know. We are good with that. You do you. That is what makes Craft Wine the distinctive American wine.
Our member benefits are always growing. We know your needs are always changing, so we’re continually seeking new ways to serve you. Is there something specific you need? Just ask. Chances are we can help.
