Partnership with Wine Lovers Agency to help sister wineries boost their profile
NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE (August 19, 2016) — PondView Estate Winery and Burnt Ship Bay Winery have engaged the Wine Lovers Agency to help them expand their presence in the Ontario marketplace.
The sister wineries, based in the Four Mile Creek Sub-Appellation in Niagara-on-the-Lake, have labels available in the LCBO and in select restaurants across the province, but are hoping a strategic partnership with the Wine Lovers Agency will boost their profile, especially in the Greater Toronto Area.
“Ontario’s wine industry is rapidly growing, and securing a market share is a significant challenge,” says Marcel Morgenstern, Co-Proprietor of Burnt Ship Bay and the Sales Manager at PondView. “But the ‘drink local’ movement is growing, which is giving Ontario’s VQA wines more traction in the GTA. We want to ensure wine drinkers across Ontario have access to our wide selection of wines at restaurants and cafés across Southern Ontario.”
Wine Lovers Agency Inc. has been a leading distributor of wines in the province for more than 30 years, helping position wines from all over the world in restaurants and on the shelves of the LCBO, in Wines and Vintages and through consignment and private ordering.
“This is a perfect partnership of two family businesses from Ontario coming together for the good of the Ontario wine industry,” says Wine Lovers Agency President Pino Piscitelli. “Ontario’s wine regions have a lot to offer and we are excited to add two exceptional labels in PondView Estate Winery and Burnt Ship Bay Winery to our portfolio.”
