Wine Shop Business Tips – New Year’s Party Edition

December 29th, 2015

It might be a little late to put in an order for the last-minute rush, but we’re going to break routine here and off some New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day party ideas. Specifically, sparklers you can suggest your clients pour and ways they can encourage the behavior they want at their holiday parties. [level-members]

First, the sparklers. From the fine folks at Vinography we have a list of sparklers that your customers may be seeking out, or that you might want to recommend. The article is here. Range of styles, countries of origin, and price points. I can’t imagine there’s a gather we haven’t covered …

Now, to make that party a bit more to your liking, look no further than your choice of glassware … This should probably be filed under the “did we really need to fund research to confirm this?” we have a study proving that larger glasses leads to increased consumption. You’re kidding!

We’ll continue with the “that’s so obvious” theme and suggest that if you’re on a budget and want to discourage consumption, break out the smallest glasses you’ve got.

On the other hand, if you’re trying to wring every ounce of interesting conversation out of a dull crowd – or you like the fireworks of an unbridled political conversation – go big with the glassware. Either waym enjoy your party!

Here’s the article in all its glory.
