PRESS RELEASE from Addison Farms Vineyard:
Addison Farms Vineyard is launching its wine club. The family vineyard, which began in 2009, has grown to 6 acres of locally grown vinifera, with eight wines currently offered. Jeff Frisbee, vintner and Addison Farms Vineyard owner, who was one of the local business owners chosen to participate in the ScaleUp WNC cohort this summer, decided the time was finally right to launch the wine club, as well as provide online sales. One focus within the ScaleUp WNC program is increasing product accessibility; this program provides intensive growth strategy development for local small businesses.
“We recently partnered with a fulfillment company who has permits for over 30 states,” according Frisbee. “Establishing a relationship with this vendor has opened up many avenues to reach our fans. Since we can now ship to several states, we knew it was time to take advantage of the broader reach potential. Creating our wine club is a natural extension of that newly-established channel. Not only are we are excited about our ability to deliver wine to Addison Farms Vineyard customers directly, but more importantly, we are looking forward to building relationships with our wine club members and offering them additional perks and special experiences at our family vineyard.”
Saturday, 12 November from 2-5pm will be the official launch party at Addison Farms
Vineyard. Guests who sign up to become wine club members at the launch party will receive special discounts on wine and Addison Farms Vineyard merchandise. Guests will enjoy complimentary light appetizers, with Sugar & Snow Gelato available for purchase. Fall flavors to include: pumpkin pie, raspberry white chocolate, roasted fig and mascarpone.
From 3-4pm, local storyteller and musician, Vono Freeman will share mountain stories of our past through story and song. Vono is an award winning musician who has appeared at the Mountain Folk Festival and Shindig on the Green in Asheville.
