Merlot Marketing named Agency of Record for El Dorado Winery Association

MM_EDWA_NewClientGraphic-01We are excited to announce that Merlot Marketing is the Agency of Record for the El Dorado Winery Association. The El Dorado Winery Association includes over 30 wineries located in scenic El Dorado County in the Sierra Nevada Foothills.

In close partnership with the El Dorado Winery Association, Merlot Marketing will manage all facets of branding, messaging, strategy, public relations and social media supporting the association’s initiative to reach a broader market of wine enthusiasts. The new messaging platform – aimed at those who want to venture off the beaten path for an authentic wine tasting experience – will be unveiled this spring. Thanks to unique terrain of varying altitudes and multiple micro-climates, the county grows more varietals than any other place in the world, making it a wine tasting destination unlike any other.

“We chose Merlot Marketing because they immediately understood who we are as a region and had great strategies on how to tell our story,” said Carey Skinner, president at El Dorado Winery Association. “Their successful track record in consumer marketing and their expertise in branding and storytelling will help us share our message across digital, social and traditional media platforms.”

“We are honored that the El Dorado Winery Association selected our agency to showcase its talented winemakers and award-winning varietals,” said Debi Hammond, CEO of Merlot Marketing. “Tasting wine can be so much more than just sipping and buying; it can be an adventure, and our agency is excited about the opportunity to tell this region’s amazing story.”
