Reputation for Sweet Wines Danielle Marketing Strategy:
· Making wine industry approachable to all

“Removing pretentiousness, elitism, and wine snobbery can bring
success” (Kent, ).

“Not always necessary to aim marketing at wine connoisseurs”

· Connecting wine with social experiences
Give people a reason to experience wine
· Add online marketing to social events to reach young wine drinkers

Example: “V-Know” was created to give young wine drinkers a place to come together and experience Markets Case Study: "Longest lunches" - hosted by local food and wine, produced by local chefs and winemakers "Issues" in Melbourne References "Boonwurrung people" ** Mornington, Peninsula 1850 rapid population growth
became true international city
those booming years brought Victoria to an outstanding legacy of fine architecture
“the jewel of the southern hemisphere”
this brought visitors to the region Each year, more than 300,000 people visit the festival "Australian wine producers exporting to China are at risk of losing their premium reputation as growing volumes threaten prices." - Rebecca Nash, writer for ABC News

'"What's on our agenda is to help put the colour back into relaunching the Australian wine industry overseas because of the brutal perfect storm we have been going through recently and the image of Australian wine abroad is not as premium as it should be.'' -Mr. Taylor, chairman of Australia's First Families of Wine Enhancing the long-term benefits through the hospitality, food, and wine industries Increased demand in local produce Programming of non-ticketed events Increased accessibility of the festival Programming of ticketed events Brings new income into the host economy Contributes to social capital **C. Michael Hall and Liz Sharples " Adding social media to target younger wine drinkers and to get them interested and talking about wine" - Kent, R - Blogging
- Events - V-Know: gives young wine drinkers a place to come together and experience different wines, different wine events each month and taste up to 12 different wines each event

- YarraLoch Cup: participants come together, network, and experience wines in a social setting, trade event for up to 70 guests Australian Wine Consumer Demographics:
· 18-24 years : Wine is only 6% of their alcohol beverage volume
· 50+ years: wine is 25% of alcohol beverage volume
· Australians over 50 are the greatest wine consumers. Drink more wine than any other age bracket.

Challenge for Australian Wine Industry:
· Because of the variety of choices due to the explosion of the beer market and the “Ready to Drink” beverages available, generations x and y will not necessarily follow baby boomers wine consumption patterns.
· Young people resort to stronger brands Backpacker Resources - Wander less into the great unknown.... Melbourne Wine Country : Resources from the Backpacker Resources.
